Bristol Instruments Hires Optical Engineer to Enhance Product Development Efforts

Date Announced: 31 Jul 2014

VICTOR, NEW YORK July 1, 2014 – Bristol Instruments, Inc., a leader in optical
interferometer-based instrumentation, is excited to announce the addition of Dr. Steven Person to
its product development team.

Dr. Person recently earned his Ph.D. from The Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester
under Professor Lukas Novotny. His thesis work focused on developing instrumentation for the
optical detection and imaging of nanoparticles and fabrication of nanostructures with novel light
scattering properties. Prior to starting his doctoral work, he was employed as an Image Scientist
at ITT Space System Division (currently Exelis) where he worked on modeling the optical
performance of space based imaging systems.

“Dr. Person will strengthen our commitment to providing our customers with the new tools they
need for their research,” said Dr. Michael Houk, Chief Technology Officer of Bristol
Instruments. “Because his background fits perfectly with our unique expertise in optical
interferometry, he will have an immediate impact on our product development capability.”
