Society for Information Display Honors NS Nanotech CEO and Co-Founder for Career Achievements
Every year the Society for Information Display (SID) honors leaders of the $100-billion global display industry “for their personal contributions and technical achievements that have helped advance the display field.” This year, the organization’s board of directors named NS Nanotech CEO and Co-founder Seth Coe-Sullivan one of five 2023 SID Fellows, recognizing “his pioneering contribution to quantum-dot-based technologies and holographic film in displays.”

"Being named a SID Fellow is a huge honor, and I'm deeply grateful for the recognition of this dynamic industry," Coe-Sullivan said. "Science and engineering are team sports, so I'd like to say a big 'thank you' to my numerous collaborators, mentors, and teammates - and to my family for their tremendous support.”
At NS Nanotech, Coe-Sullivan is advancing the state of the art in GaN-based nanoLEDs for next-generation displays, including microdisplays for augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR), as well as for UV-C LED disinfection applications requiring short-wavelength ultraviolet light. Previously, he founded QD Vision, the quantum-dot pioneer whose technology was acquired by Samsung for its QLED TVs. He was also chief technology officer at Luminit, where he advanced holographic display technology sold to North and acquired by Google.
“The membership grade of Fellow is one of unusual professional distinction conferred upon a SID member of outstanding qualifications and experience as a scientist or engineer in the field of information display who has made widely recognized and significant contributions to the advancement of the display field,” the Society for Information Display said in its announcement. “Each of the recipients of the 2023 SID Honors and Awards have advanced the trajectories of both well-established and emerging display technologies. Their significant accomplishments have furthered research, pushed the boundaries of discovery, and enabled a wide range of continued successes.”
Founded in 1962 to promulgate display technology, the Society for Information Display (SID) is comprised of the top scientists, engineers, corporate researchers, and executives of the global display industry. SID’s annual Display Week is the world’s largest technical symposium and exhibition for emerging technologies in the high-growth global electronic display industry, attracting more than 200 exhibitors and 7,000 attendees from more than 50 countries every year.
