The Inventor / Physicist (Left side)
Dr. Michael E. Lewis, PhD., Inventor and Leader of electromagnetic corrosion module’s R&D Department, with a PhD in Physics from Kent State University in 1987. Dr. Lewis has over a dozen patents and invented a new electronic corrosion reduction method in 1997. He has designed pulsed power, power supply for high energy pulsed lasers, as well as high-speed optoelectronic modulators and Q- switches using Pockels cell modulators. He also designed high-speed pulse generators, both solid state & photoconductive. Dr. Lewis has directed a multidisciplinary materials science research effort to study the relationship between the molecular structure and the third-order optical nonlinearity of metal organic polymers and monomers and has worked extensively in the fields of Optoelectronics, Optical Modulation and High Speed Electronics.
The Graduate / Electrochemist (Middle)
Dr. Jason McLafferty, PhD., has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Pennsylvania State University Undergraduate Research Project at Penn State Behrend. He then worked at Alcoa’s Research Laboratories and became interested in electrochemistry. Based upon this interest, he decided to do his PhD. dissertation research with Dr. Digby Macdonald in the department of Materials Science and Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Co-wrote two invention disclosures on Regeneration of Sodium Borohydride. Jason graduated with his PhD in Electro Chemistry from Pennsylvania State University and in 2008 joined Dr. Michael Lewis at our Research Facility just outside Akron, Ohio to lead our team in the Testing & Research on the Electro-Chemistry side of our patented technology.
