About Bahman Taheri

Dr. Bahman Taheri is CEO of AlphaMicron, a company he co-founded in 1997 with two other Kent State University Liquid Crystal Institute faculty members. They formed the company to work on a research and development project with the Department of Defense, which resulted in their patented e-Tint™ technology which allows fighter pilots' visors to instantaneously adapt to changing ambient light conditions. Today the company designs and manufactures high-tech military and consumer products utilizing liquid crystal technology and an innovative Roll to Roll (R2R) manufacturing process, allowing for more cost-effective manufacturing. In 2010 the company transitioned from research and development to marketing their patented technology for auto-tinting flight deck goggles, ski goggles, motorcycle visor inserts, and auto-dimming automotive mirrors. Future product releases include cycling and paint ball lenses, and upgrades to their original flight deck goggles including a sealed power unit and neutral color tinting. AlphaMicron is also researching innovations in auto-adjusting residential windows, shutters for semiconductor fabrication facilities and luxury eyewear. Dr. Taheri is an adjunct professor in the Chemical Physics Interdisciplinary Program at Kent State University. He earned his Ph.D. in physics at Oklahoma State University in 1995 and participated in the Owner/President Management Program 40 (OPM 40) at Harvard Business School from 2008-2010.
