Mike Bohrer, PhD
Michael P. Bohrer, Ph.D - Vice President, Engineering
Dr. Michael Bohrer has more than 25 years of experience in process development and new product introduction, much of which has been focused on optical fiber technology.
As a Technical Manager at Bell Laboratories and OFS Laboratories he led a group responsible for development of manufacturing processes from pilot-scale to full production capacity.
This group introduced or contributed to many successful optical fiber manufacturing processes including germanium recovery for silica optical fiber manufacturing, sol-gel production of high purity silica tubing, high efficiency fluorine doping and photochlorination of silicon tetrachloride.
group also had responsibility for the design and operation of a pilot-scale polymerization facility for manufacturing lithographic polymer materials used in AT&T's
microelectronics R&D division.
has authored or coauthored 6 technical papers covering optical fiber manufacturing technologies, as well as 28 other articles on polymer synthesis, macromolecular transport through membranes and electronic materials processing.
holds 5 US patents in the field of optical fiber manufacturing.
Dr. Bohrer earned his Ph.D. (Chemical Engineering, 1979) and M.S. (Chemical Engineering, 1976) degrees from Stanford University.
undergraduate degree (Chemical Engineering, 1975) is from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
