About £1.6 million is on its way to three UK organizations, courtesy of the government. It's to help the country develop and be an innovator in OLED technologies, which is used in applications such as the pictured keyboard from Optimus.

Cambridge Display Technology, Thorn Lighting, and the University of Durham are the three names making up the government-tied conglomerate. The grant will cover about half of the £3.3 million project the group is working on, which will take about three years to complete.Polymer light emitting diode (P-OLED) technology is one of the UK's big claims to fame in the high-tech sector. This technology helps to provide a more power and cost efficient lighting source.

CDT's CEO David Fyfe said about the government grant, "It will allow us to make fast progress in improving our ability to develop inks and device technology, as well as expand the application of our P-OLED technology into the lighting market."
