|Memories of VideoDisc - Who's Who in VideoDisc|
Mohamed Labib received a BSc in chemistry and Geology from Alexandria University, Egypt, in 1967, and in 1973 he received the MS in Physical Chemistry from Cairo University. In 1979 he was awarded the Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from McGill University, Montreal.
Dr. Labib joined RCA Laboratories in 1979 as a Member of the Technical Staff, and began work on the development of the VideoDisc material. He has been involved in the physical and chemical characterization of the carbon-black filler for the VideoDisc, and in 1981 he received the RCA Laboratories Outstanding Achievement Award for this work. He has also been studying the nature of filler/polymer interfaces in composite materials, and ways of modifying them. Dr. Labib's current interests include the surface properties of phosphor slurries and the passivation of III-V compounds.

Dr. Mohamed E. Labib is the President and Founder of Novaflux Technologies (1988 - Present). He has over thirty years of experience in the development and marketing of new technologies. His background includes over 13 years (1979-1992) at RCA Laboratories/Sarnoff Corporation in Princeton, New Jersey, where he worked as a Member of Technical Staff. During his tenure at Sarnoff he developed several key technologies in videodiscs, luminescent materials for CRT and fluorescent lamp, drug delivery - including sustained release and inhalation, inter-metallic composites and others. Several products based on his development have been commercialized on a large scale, including: electro-luminescent and fluorescent lamp phosphors, sustained release vehicles for treating asthma, inhalation devices, topical formulation for treating acne and others. Dr. Labib received Sarnoff achievement awards in 1981 and 1990 for the development of videodisc materials and fluorescent lamp phosphors, respectively. Notably, the latter is being used in current fluorescent lamps made by General Electric Corporation.
In 1992, Dr. Labib joined the Faculty of New Jersey Institute of Technology where he taught and directed active research in several areas, including: critical cleaning in pharmaceutical industry, development of air bag inflators based on new combustion systems and on flashing of liquid carbon dioxide, development of multimedia environmental models for the Passaic Watershed in New Jersey; development of permeable reactive barrier technologies for treating groundwater contaminated with hexavalent chromium, development of virus removal techniques for drinking water applications, colloidal delivery of vaccines and other research programs. Dr. Labib attracted millions of dollars in research funding for NJIT. He is currently active in supervising doctorate research at NJIT, but at lower time commitment.
At Novaflux Technologies, Dr. Labib has been engaged in developing technologies for removing biofilm and other contaminants from medical and industrial equipment and devices. Dr. Labib has developed devices to remove biofilm from dental unit waterlines. He is developing devices for hemodialyzer reprocessing, endoscope reprocessing and cold sterilization of dental handpieces. Dr. Labib is the co-inventor of several patents pertaining to the turbulent two-phase cleaning process and its applications. In addition, he has developed inhalation devices for both Rhone Poulenc and Boehringer Ingelheim and has developed several other technologies. He has managed many programs with SRI International, Sarnoff Corporation, and Novaflux, and had been funded by: NSF, NASA, US-Air Force, US-Navy, US-EPA, US-DOT, USDA, NJ-DEP, and corporations such as Rhone Poulenc, Bohringer-Ingelheim and General Electric.
Dr. Labib has been an active member of the American Chemical Society since 1979 as well as the American Society of Microbiology, OSAP, since 1998. He was a Member-at-Large in the Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry. He was Secretary for the Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry, ACS, from 1982 to 1987, and organized several symposia in the fields of interface chemistry and advanced materials applications. He is a reviewer of the following journals: Langmuir, Journal of Colloid Interface Science, and Adhesion, both since 1985. Dr. Labib received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from McGill University in 1979, and his M.B.A. in Management and Finance from Monmouth University, NJ. He acquired his M.S. in Biophysical Chemistry/Chemical Engineering from Cairo University in 1974 and received B.S. in Chemistry and Geology with honors from Alexandria University, Egypt in 1967.
Dr. Labib published over thirty articles in peer-reviewed journals, presented more than fifty conference papers, and was issued 15 United States and International patents.
