MERI specialist was awarded the Moscow Government Prize

On the Russian Science Day the Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin presented Moscow government prizes to young scientists including Sergey Ilyin, the Head of the Laboratory for Development of Technological Representations and Characterization of Libraries, MERI JSC (ELEMENT Group).

The Moscow Government Prize for Young Scientists has been annually awarded by the Moscow Government since 2013 to young specialists for achieving outstanding results in fundamental and applied research in the field of natural, technical and humanitarian sciences, as well as for the development and implementation of new technologies, devices, equipment, materials and substances. Both individual scientists and groups of up to three people can apply for the award. The prize is awarded in 22 nominations, including 11 in the field of research and the same number in the field of development and design.

Sergey Ilyin became the winner in the category "Electronics and Communications" with the project "Development and production of active matrix microdisplays based on organic light-emitting diodes".

Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays are used in smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, televisions and other consumer devices. In addition, they are part of the on-board equipment of cars, ships and aircraft. With a number of obvious advantages over plasma or liquid crystal displays (higher brightness and contrast), OLED displays have lower power consumption, size and weight, and also allow you to create flexible screens with high resolution.

When creating a microdisplay, a wide range of complex engineering problems were successfully solved. Features of the product architecture required the technology to be improved, which led to the need to develop a completely new set of design tools, including a new PDK, specialized libraries of interface I / O elements and digital cells. An integrated approach to building an eco-design environment ensured effective integration of the upper level of the project and full performance of the product, compliance with the declared characteristics, and also laid a methodological basis for continuing work on the import substitution program and expanding the range of matrix displays in the Russian Federation: this product will become the basis of the first national AMOLED display. Another of the important features of the project is the modular architecture, which allows assembling displays with a resolution from 1280x1024 pixels to FullHD from basic blocks.

MERI engineers were already awarded by the Moscow government: in 2016, the winner in the category "Electronics and Communication Means" was Andrey Nuikin, a development engineer.  Now he is the Head of the IC development department at MERI JSC.
