TULSA, Okla., March 7, 2011 — Three-dimensional and display technologies developer 3DIcon Corp. announced the appointment of Dr. Brian G. Hoover as vice president of technology development.

In his new position, Hoover will work with Dr. Hakki Refai, the company’s chief technology officer, and Vivek Bhaman, its technology advisory board chairman, to bring the company’s CSpace volumetric imaging system closer to market.

Hoover founded and acted as CEO and senior scientist at Advanced Optical Technologies (AOT), where he conducted research and development on a host of physical optics topics, including laser metrology, material characterization, nanotechnology and remote sensing based on advanced techniques in laser scattering and polarimetry.

Before founding AOT, Hoover worked at Applied Technology Associates and at Celeste Optics. Before that, he was a postdoctoral fellow and research assistant at the University of Michigan and the University of Houston.

Hoover said he looks forward to helping 3DIcon bring its latest 3-D imaging advancements to market because of their importance to future military capabilities.

GLOSSARY
nanotechnology
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
physical optics
The branch of science that treats light as a wave phenomenon wherein light propagation is studied by wavefronts rather than rays, as in geometric optics.
polarimetry
The measurement of the rotation of the plane of polarization of radiant energy, usually through the use of a polarimeter.
remote sensing
Technique that utilizes electromagnetic energy to detect and quantify information about an object that is not in contact with the sensing apparatus.
