Stephen Squires, CEO and founder of leading North American quantum dot manufacturer Quantum Materials Corp, will be speaking at the launch event for the Rice Center for Quantum Materials (RCQM) on December 16th, 2014.
The RCQM launch continues Rice University's leadership in the exploration of exotic nanomaterials in attracting top faculty and students and by inviting the world's leading experts to Rice to collaborate on research.
"We have a long association with Rice University and are looking forward to participating with Rice's leading experts in quantum materials at the RCQM Launch," said Stephen Squires, Founder and CEO of Quantum Materials Corp. "Texas is rapidly becoming the epicenter of dedicated nanoscale materials research. Quantum Materials Corp is actively developing new hybrid metal composites and quantum dots for this research while also providing a path toward the beneficial commercialization of these technologies."
Mr. Squires will be participating in a panel discussion on 'Quantum Material - Perspectives and Opportunities' moderated by RCQM Director Prof. Qimiao Si, along with Neal F. Lane, Rice professor and former Director of the National Science Foundation and the White House Office of Science and Technology, Prof. Elihu Abrahams of UCLA, Dr. Charles Day from Physics Today, and Prof. Laura Greene of UIUC – who is also the Vice President Elect of the American Physical Society.
According to RCQM director Qimiao Si, Rice's Harry C. and Olga K. Wiess Professor of Physics and Astronomy, "We are delighted to have Stephen Squires on board for our panel discussion. We look forward to exploring opportunities for interactions with the Quantum Materials Corp."
The Rice Center for Quantum Materials is located at William Marsh Rice University, Houston, Texas 77005, U.S.A. For more information on the RCQM launch December 15-16 please go to http://rcqm.rice.edu/events/7/.
