Dr. Ding was the former principal scientist who led a group on energy saving window coating to develop the future products for the world's leading company in this field. He has many satisfied customers. Here are some highlights of Dr. Ding's achievements:
submitted an average 27 patent alerts per year in 2013~2016.
author of 1/9 US granted patents in 2014 & 2015 in the field of building Low-E Glass Coating
Committee Member of the International Conference on Lasers and Optics in 2018.
See how our company's research solves real-world issues that then later become published and presented at international conferences.
