I came to the USA (Columbus, Ohio) more than 40 years ago as a graduate student at the Ohio State University from Pakistan to study Physics. After graduation with a PhD, I have worked in the USA for various organizations including University of Virginia (Charlottesville, VA), the Ohio State University, GE, ITT and IBM as a Physicist, Electronics Engineer or IT Architect & Developer. After all these years of professional work, I felt very accomplished professionally with 75 publications, 44 issued patents, a book as a sole author and many professional awards. However, I always wanted to do something for the humankind and the environment which will have a lasting impact. Given my professional skills, I was fortunate enough to invent a breakthrough electronic technology in the area of solar power. This technology should be able to revolutionize solar power by making it dramatically low cost. Currently, the main roadblock to the common use of solar is the high upfront cost for the installation of solar power systems.
