Apple has hired a senior OLED researcher away from LG Display, according to new report.

OLED-A says Apple recently hired Jueng –jil (James) Lee--a former Research fellow from LG Display and a senior person in LG Display’s R&D effort to create a printed AMOLED TV. Prior to joining LG Display, Dr. Lee was responsible for development at Cambridge Display Technology (CDT, now Sumitomo), the leading developer of solution-based polymer based OLED material. Dr. Lee is a part of the CTO’s organization and will draw on resources from Apple’s display group. He is no doubt more knowledgeable about OLEDs that any of Apple’s current staff, which is known to be quite strong.

It's unclear if Apple is looking to use Jueng Jil Lee to improve the displays of its iOS devices or whether his skill might be put to use on the much rumored Apple Television.
