Address : 314 Engineering Bldg. Stony Brook, NY
Dr. Vijayen (Victor) Veerasamy is a Research Professor of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering and Co-Director of the Laser Assisted Advanced Manufacturing Center at Stony Brook University (SUNY, USA). Affiliated with the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Dr. Veerasamy`s extensive professional experience include, electronics, sensors, material science, large area plasma-based deposition systems and optical thin film designs. His industrial experience at Sony (Japan/U.S.A.), Optical Imaging Systems (U.S.A.) and Guardian Industries (U.S.A.) have centered on: (1) optoelectronics for flat panel display applications and optical thin films, (2) a-Si:H /poly-Si materials for TFT applications on high-resolution flat panel display applications, and (3) laser processing of phase change materials for memory devices. During his tenure at Optical Imaging Systems, he led the development of super high aperture MIM active matrix flat panel displays for avionics applications and large area digital X-ray sensors for both medical and industrial applications. As a Technical Corporate Fellow at Guardian Industries` Science and Technology Center, he led novel areas in linear ion beams for deposition and processing of high-performance thin films on glass; optical designs of high performance multi-layered infrared reflective coatings, and completed seminal work on vacuum insulated glazing. He holds over 180 issued patents in his field of expertise. A sample of his inventions that have been commercialized include: low E glass, DiamondGuard, Showerguard and Reveal Switchable glass. Over the years he has received several awards including the R&D 100 Award.
Research interests and expertise: Dr. Veerasamy’s principal areas of research are in: sensors, plasma deposition sources, development of novel thin films for optoelectronic applications (including plasmonics) and enhancing engineering laser beams for novel interactions on material functionality.
