Dr. Christopher (Chris) A. Bower is the Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of X Display Company (XDC). Before joining XDC, he was the Chief Technology Officer at X-Celeprint Limited, a company founded to develop and commercialize advanced micro-assembly technologies. He was formerly a Technical Manager at Semprius, Inc., where he led the team responsible for micro-transfer-printing and wafer-level-packaging of advanced microscale solar cells. His experience includes three years of research and development on three-dimensionally integrated circuits at RTI International and four years of research on nanotechnology and photonics devices at Bell Labs and InPlane Photonics, Inc. Chris received a Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in 2000, where his graduate studies focused on the synthesis and novel properties of carbon nanotubes. His interests include three-dimensional integration of integrated circuits, heterogeneous integration of compound semiconductors onto non-native substrates, and the fabrication of low-cost, large-format electronics using novel assembly methods. He is an author on over one hundred and twenty scientific publications and has filed over one hundred and fifty patents.
