– As a renowned authority in the optimization and scale-up of nanomaterials and quantum dot production, Dr.Krueger is ideally suited to contribute to the development and commercialization plans of Quantum Materials Corp
SAN MARCOS, Texas, Nov. 19, 2014 / PRNewswire – Leading North American quantum dot manufacturer Quantum Materials Corp (OTCQB:QTMM) today announced the appointment of Dr. Michael Krueger to the position of Vice President of Nanomaterials.
Prior to joining Quantum Materials Dr. Krueger led groundbreaking research teams at the Nanotechnology Laboratory of the Freiburg Materials Research Centre and the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg. Dr. Krueger has extensive experience working with academic and industrial partners including Bayer Technology Services GmbH to synthesize semiconductor quantum dots and integrate them into lighting and light conversion, photovoltaic and bio-analytical applications. His recent authored publications include research on graphene oxide and carbon nanotubes attached to quantum dots or other nanomaterials for novel hybrid composites.
“The depth and breadth of Dr. Krueger’s experience in the quantum dot and nanomaterials fields aligns perfectly with our technologies and make him well-suited to accelerate our commercialization goals,” said Stephen Squires, Founder and CEO of Quantum Materials Corp. “When combined with his record of proven research team management and expertise in teaching PhD candidates, we think we are more than fortunate to have found him to lead our team.”
Dr. Krueger earned his MS in chemistry from the University of Freiburg and PhD in Applied Physics from the University of Basel. Dr. Krueger has authored and co-authored over 150 scientific contributions (peer-reviews, conferences, book chapters, patents and talks) and is founding editor of emerging science journal Hybrid Materials. He is a prolific reviewer for scientific journals and funding agencies and also leads scientific conferences and meetings.
Dr. Krueger was recognized by the Max Planck Society for his outstanding contributions to the field at the Schloessmann Seminar on Nanostructures. He received his Habilitation (university teaching certificate) from the University of Freiburg and earlier stations in his scientific career were the University of Zurich, Switzerland and Technion Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel.
Quantum Materials also announced that Chief Science Officer Dr. Ghassan Jabbour is speaking on the topic of Quantum Materials’ “Scaled Quantum Dot Production” capabilities at the IdTechEx Printed Electronics Conference in Santa Clara, CA on Thursday, November 20th.
