A couple of weeks ago it was reported that Dr. Ching Tang and Steven Van Slyke, the two OLED pioneers, are on the short list for this year's Nobel prize in chemistry. The winners were announced, and unfortunately Dr. Tang and Steven Van Slyke were not awarded with the prestigious prize.

The 2014 prize went to Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner. The researchers managed to enhance optical microscopy and enable it to obtain a better resolution than half the wavelength of light, a feat that was believed to be impossible.
