Posted on July 16, 2009 @ 11:14 am

Kent Displays announced the naming of Dr. Asad Khan as chief technical officer (CTO). Dr. Khan replaces Dr. J. William Doane, a pioneer in reflective LCD technology and director emeritus of the Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State University. Dr. Doane has moved to the role of senior advisor and will remain on Kent Displays’ Executive Committee.

Dr. Khan joined Kent Displays in 1995 as a research engineer. He has since held roles of increasing responsibility, most recently as the vice president of technology and as a member of the Executive Committee. He has published more than 60 papers in U.S. and international journals and possesses more than 15 U.S. and international patents (with several applications pending).

In his new role, Dr. Khan has primary responsibility for further development of Reflex No Power LCD technology, the foundation for which was built by Dr. Doane as co-founder of Kent Displays. Focus activities include authoring the development framework for Reflex technology to meet the overall company strategic plan, directing a growing internal team of scientists in the implementation of the framework, and playing the lead role in managing various strategic relationships with suppliers and joint development partners.

“We have been exceptionally fortunate to have the services of two internationally–recognized LCD industry leaders in the CTO role, Dr. Doane and now Dr. Khan,” Kent Displays' CEO Dr. Albert Green stated. “As one of Kent Displays’ longest‐tenured employees, Dr. Khan offers keen insight into the company’s history and vast experience in the display industry. This knowledge, combined with an extensive technical background, makes him the ideal individual to lead the development of Reflex technology for new and unique applications such as smart cards, electronic skins and writing tablets. We have great confidence in his ability to provide the necessary direction to take Reflex technology into these new frontiers and many others.”
