The founder and General Manager of Bolite Optoelectronics, Dr. Bowen Cheng, was invited to present at the recent Touch Taiwan 2021 Conference in April. The title of his talk was â€œLaser Processing Applications for the Manufacturing of Mini and MicroLED Displays.â€ Since it was presented in Mandarin only, microled-info.com caught up with Dr. Cheng to learn more about this trending subject and the company he started.
Q: Dr. Cheng, can you please tell us a little about your background, prior to starting Bolite?
I was a research engineer at Xerox PARC and helped develop surface micromachined microspring interconnects in a project funded by the U.S. Army Research in collaboration with Oracle. I was also a vital member of the team that successfully demonstrated the worldâ€™s shortest wavelength diode laser at the time, a 250 nm UV laser for military applications. With these experiences in both semiconductor laser processing and MEMS processing, I decided to start Bolite and build a team to develop state-of-the-art laser solutions for microprocessing applications.
Q: I must admit Iâ€™ve not heard of Bolite before. What differentiates you from other laser microprocessing companies?
