Dr. Ofir Aharon the inventor of the PatScope scanner and its algorithms, Entrepreneur, and Scientific Advisor. The initiator of Patternox LTD.
Dr, Aharon holds a Ph.D. in Electro-Optics, Specializing in the field of liquid crystal devices for bio-imaging systems and computational electromagnetism.
Dr. Aharon was involved in international projects in the field of electromagnetism at the GSI, the particle accelerator in Darmstadt, Germany. While at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, he contributed to the field of nonlinear fiber optics. His essays and articles based on his research have been published in international scientific journals. Dr, Aharon has lectured at several professional conferences and has published over two dozen papers and articles.
Dr. Aharon was part of a research team at the CTO Department of Elop (Elbit systems), managed projects, and later had a position at the Advance Development Group as part of the CTO of KLA-Tencor USA (Nano and Microelectronics). He managed a futuristic project at the Advanced LAB. He is also the inventor of optical devices such as the DOSI method in his Ph.D. and SGPI & LMB methods in the frame of Patternox. He was Meopta’s representative and mediator in Samsung’s CTO and LG’s CTO - Korea headquarters.
