What causes an Israeli born in Romania to immigrate to America and end up with over 300 patents in his name in the most exciting scientific and technological breakthroughs of the 20th century? Join my adventures as physicist, inventor, and entrepreneur and see how Jules Verne’s book, The Mysterious Island, ignited my imagination and love for science, which, in turn, propelled me to a career in flat panel displays, image digitizers, and molecular engineering. These fields eventually became an integral part of what is known in the common vernacular today as nanotechnology.
Do you use an image scanner digitizer? Are you reading this on a flat panel display, on your computer, your iPad or iPhone? Are you getting information driving on the highways from electronic billboards? Are you watching the news or movies on your giant color TV screen? Follow my journey and along the way, learn how to unleash your own creativity and innovation. Understand what nanotechnology is all about and its future.
This book is about creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, using the vehicle of my life and career as a case study. The book shows one person’s ability to use his creativity and innovation skills to impact the fields of liquid crystal displays, image scanner digitizers, flat-screen color TVs, digital advertising, and give rise to nanotechnologically-based new materials and applications thereof. During my over four decade career in science and industry, I perfected techniques for taking ideas from concepts to commercialization, outlining an explicit road map for this process. Along the way, the book demystifies what nanotechnology is and how it’s used in society today, as well as predictions for future uses.
