It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of one of the Founders of RPC Photonics, Dr. Stephen Chakmakjian, who returned to the position of RPC President on March 20 2017 to lead the company to further commercial success.
“It is absolutely fantastic to have Stephen back at RPC Photonics,” says Dr. Michael Morris, RPC’s Chief Executive Officer. “He brings a wealth of experience, talent and energy that will be a key element in propelling RPC’s technology and business growth to a whole new level of success.”
Stephen was one of the principal architects of RPC’s seamless drum mastering system, and will be a valuable resource as we work to expand our film-based Engineered DiffuserTM product lines, as well as RPC’s high-volume wafer manufacturing processes for optical beam-shaping applications in the consumer electronics, commercial and defense market sectors.
Stephen holds a B.S in Physics and earned his PhD in Optics from the University of Rochester in 1990 and has 8 awarded patents and multiple refereed technical papers to his credit.
