Arthur J. Devine of Escondido received a Diploma certifying his inclusion into the select rank of Internationally Registered Technology Specialists, IRTS, at level 6(1R6). This certification recognizes PhD and ScD degree level accomplishments. His nomination was submitted by Ideas Unlimited, and the ceremony was held at their recent Thursday luncheon meeting, hosted at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe.
Devine 66, earned this very high recognition in the international technical community because of his expertise in material science, notably vitreous and metallurgical bonding of magnetic ceramics.
As founder and president of Magnetic Arts Corp. thirty years ago, Devine pioneered recording head improvements, enabling the compact disc drives of today, "Thirty years ago they were the size of washing machines with only 1.6 megabyte storage. That's 10,000 times less than today", he related. In 1989 Devine's technologies for recording heads were acquired by Seagate.
Last year his company delivered a laser micromachining system for Hawaii's 8.1 meter Gemini Telescope, the worlds largest. The laser makes microscopic incisions in a mask allowing only the light from selected objects through the aperture whereby the resolution is improved nearly 3 times.
The Diploma was presented by Dr. I. S. Tuba, Executive Director of International Technology Institute, ITI, which acts as Secretariat for IRTS, as well as to several other significant international programs, including the Hall of Fame for Engineering, Science and Technology, HOFEST.
