Lumera Corporation, a leader in the emerging field of nanotechnology, announced today its next installment of its 2007 Lumera Experts Podcasting Series. The featured interview is with Dr. Larry Dalton a global electro-optic expert and Nobel Prize Nominee and Professor of Chemistry and Electrical engineering at the University of Washington.
Dr. Dalton, a distinguished professor and a global expert in photonics and electro-optics has received numerous awards for pioneering many breakthroughs in electro-optic polymer technology including the technology that is the foundation for Lumera’s Electro-Optic Polymer Modulator.
“Electro-optics and photonics have an enormous impact on our lives, but we all take them for granted,” said Dalton in his podcast interview. “In the future electro-optic technology could play a critical role in next generation defense, computer transportation, medicine, entertainment, information technology and energy.”
“As a company committed to fabricating high-performance and cost-effective polymers we feel fortunate to have Larry Dalton, whose research is greatly contributing to the future of photonics and electro-optics, as a business partner,” commented Lumera Chief Executive Officer Tom Mino.
“Companies like Lumera are playing critical roles in getting federally sponsored, university generated technologies to the marketplace,” continued Dalton. “Lumera is solving a lot of problems associated with device design and fabrication, particularly with polymers being used in fiber-optic transmission, to help get these types of products to market.”
Earlier this year, Lumera announced the 2007 Lumera Experts Podcast Series featuring interviews with industry leaders who are familiar with Lumera’s technology and are experts in nanotechnology, bio-arrays, drug discovery, electro-optics, and wireless technologies. Dr. Niro Ramachandran, a research associate at the Harvard Institute of Proteomics led by Dr. Josh LaBaer, was the first interview featured and the podcast is currently available to download on Lumera’s website.
The podcasts are available through a variety of distribution networks and can be downloaded among other places at podtech.com; Apple’s iTunes, Rocky Mountain Podcasting and at Lumera’s own website, http://www.lumera.com/Company/Podcasts.php.
