Last week we reported about a new large-scale computer-driven material screening process that was developed by Researchers from Harvard University, MIT and Samsung.
The so-called Molecular Space Shuttle system combines theoretical and experimental chemistry, machine learning and cheminformatics, with an aim to quickly identify new OLED molecules (the system was already used to deisgn more than a 1,000 new high-performance blue-light emitting molecules). Today Kyulux announced that it secured a license to Harvard University’s Molecular Space Shuttle deep learning system.
Kyulux also announced that it also recruited three key researchers that developed the new system in Harvard. Professor Aspuru-Guzik, in charge of the group that developed the new software, will also join the company as a part-time scientific advisor.
Kyulux was spun-off from Kyushu University in early 2016, to commercialize the TADF emitters developed at the University. A few months later, Kyulux raised $13.5 million (from LG, Samsung, Japan Display and JOLED).
We have met with Kyulux's team at SID 2016, posting on the company's progress towards green, yellow and blue TADF emitters.
