Joseph Castellano

Biography

Joseph A. Castellano received a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (formerly the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn). In 1962, he joined Thiokol Chemical Company, Denville, New Jersey, where he performed rocket-fuel research under contract to the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. Castellano joined RCA Laboratories in 1965 and was part of the team that developed the world's first liquid crystal display (LCD). In 1976, he founded Stanford Resources, a consulting company that became a world leader in research and analysis of the rapidly growing display industry. He retired in 2003 following the merger of Stanford Resources with iSuppli Corporation. Castellano has authored or coauthored more than 60 papers and two books, including Liquid Gold: The Story of Liquid Crystal Displays and the Creation of an Industry (World Scientific Publishing, 2005), and is the holder of 12 U.S. patents. He continues to be active in several international scientific associations and helps teach eighth-grade physical science as a volunteer in the national RE-SEED program.
