In this episode Harold King speaks with Shawn George, about this growing business and important technology. Thin film coatings are used in a wide range of applications for many purposes. They can be used to protect displays from scratches or environmental exposure, create a specific degree of reflectivity on a lens or build layers of metallization on semiconductor wafers. Universal Thin Film has been in business for more than 30 years and Shawn is helping them expand into new industry sectors and further develop the technology.
Harold talks with Shawn about thin film technology, what it is and how it works and where it is used. They also discuss his career path that included a long stint in the Army, a “later in life” college degree and an answer to the question “how does a history major end up helping to run a technology company?”
