Richard W. Siegel
Dr. Siegel is a co-founder of the Company and has served as a director of the Company since 1989. Dr. Siegel served as a consultant to the Company from 1990 to 2002 with regard to the application and commercialization of nanomaterials. Dr. Siegel is an internationally recognized scientist in the field of nanomaterials. During his tenure on the research staff at Argonne National Laboratory from July 1974 to May 1995, he was the principal scientist engaged in research with the laboratory-scale synthesis process that was the progenitor of the Company's physical-vapor-synthesis production system. Dr. Siegel has been the Robert W. Hunt Professor in Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute since June 1995, and served as Department Head from 1995 to 2000. Dr. Siegel was the founding Director of both the Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center (2001-2015) and the U.S. National Science Foundation funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for Directed Assembly of Nanostructures (2001-2013). During the period from 1995 until 1998, he was also a visiting professor at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics in Germany on an Alexander von Humboldt Research Prize received in 1994. During the period from 2003 until 2004 he was a visiting professor in Japan on a RIKEN Eminent Scientist Award. He chaired the World Technology Evaluation Center worldwide study of nanostructure science and technology for the U.S. government, has served on the Council of the Materials Research Society and as Chairman of the International Committee on Nanostructured Materials. He also served on the Committee on Materials with Sub-Micron Sized Microstructures of the National Materials Advisory Board and was the co-chairman of the Study Panel on Clusters and Cluster-Assembled Materials for the U.S. Department of Energy. He served on the Nanotechnology Technical Advisory Group to the U.S. President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology during 2003-2009. Dr. Siegel holds an A.B. degree in physics from Williams College and an M.S. degree and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Richard W. Siegel
The past decade has seen an explosive growth worldwide in the physical, chemical, and biological synthesis and study of a wide range of nanoscale building blocks with unique properties. The aerosol research community has made significant contributions to this growth. Biography: Richard W. Siegel is the Robert W. Hunt Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and founding Director of the Nanotechnology Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is also founding director of the National Science Foundation Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for Directed Assembly of Nanostructures. He graduated from Williams College in 1958 with an AB degree in physics and received an MS degree in physics in 1960 and a PhD degree in metallurgy in 1965 from the University of Illinois in Urbana. Dr. Siegel has been a visiting professor in Germany, Israel, India, Switzerland, and Japan and has been active in local, national, and international professional organizations. He is currently a member of the Nanotechnology Technical Advisory Group of the U.S. President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. Dr. Siegel chaired the World Technology Evaluation Center worldwide study on nanostructure science and technology during 1996-1998 that led to the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative in 2001. He was also past chairman (1992-1996) of the International Committee on Nanostructured Materials. Dr. Siegel has authored more than 240 publications and several patents (10 issued, 8 pending) in the areas of defects in metals, diffusion, and nanostructured metal, ceramic, composite, and biomaterials. He has presented more than 450 invited lectures around the world and has also edited 10 books on these subjects. He is an Honorary Member of the Materials Research Societies of India and Japan, and a 1994 recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Senior Research Award in Germany. In 2001, he was named a RIKEN Eminent Scientist in Japan. Dr. Siegel also received a 2003 Deutsche Bank Prize "Pioneer of Nanotechnology - Nanomaterials" in Germany.
