QMC appoints nanomaterials expert Michael Krueger


North American quantum dot manufacturer Quantum Materials Corp (QMC) has announced the appointment of Michael Krueger to the position of vice president of nanomaterials.

Prior to joining QMC Krueger lead groundbreaking research teams at the Nanotechnology Laboratory of the Freiburg Materials Research Centre and the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg.

Krueger has extensive experience working with academic and industrial partners including Bayer Technology Services GmbH to synthesise semiconductor quantum dots and integrate them into lighting and light conversion, photovoltaic and bio-analytical applications. His recent 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 QMC. "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."

Krueger's earned his MS in chemistry from the University of Freiburg and PhD in Applied Physics from the University of Basel. 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.

Krueger was recognised by the Max Planck Society for his outstanding contributions to the field at the Schloessmann Seminar on Nanostructures.
