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. In April 2001, Dr. Siegel became the founding Director of the newly created Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center at the Institute. During 1995-1998, 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 2003-2004 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.

Dr. Richard W. Siegel (Panel Chair) Robert W. Hunt Professor and Head, Materials Science and Engineering Dept. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Dr. Siegel holds an AB degree (Physics) from Williams College and MS (Physics) and PhD (Metallurgy) degrees from the University of Illinois in Urbana. He is the past Chairman of the International Committee on Nanostructured Materials and earlier served on the U.S. National Materials Advisory Board Committee on Materials with Submicron-Sized Microstructures and was the co-chairman of the Study Panel on Clusters and Cluster-Assembled Materials for the U.S. Department of Energy. He was on the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook (1966-1976) and at Argonne National Laboratory (1974-1995).
He has authored more than 180 publications in the areas of defects in metals; diffusion ; and nanophase metal, ceramic, and composite materials. In addition, he has presented more than 300 invited lectures around the world and has edited 7 books on these subjects. He was listed by Science Watch as the fourth most highly cited author in materials science during 1990-1994. Dr. Siegel is an associate editor of Materials Letters and a founding principal editor of Nanostructured Materials. He is a founder and director of Nanophase Technologies Corporation, and was recognized for this effort by a 1991 U.S. Federal Laboratory Consortium Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer. He is an honorary member of the Materials Research Societies of India and Japan, a 1994 recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Senior Research Award in Germany, and he presented the 1996 MacDonald Lecture in Canada.

"NanoSpace provides educators with interactive activities and games to supplement what they are teaching in the classroom," Richard W. Siegel, Ph.D., Director of the Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center. "When learning is fun, it increases a child's capacity to absorb and retain knowledge," he added.
About - The Molecularium Project

"It was clear that it worked even in a very crude format," says Dr. Richard W. Siegel, the director of the nanotechnology center.
...
In early 2004, Schadler, Garde, and Siegel were awarded a U.S. National Science Foundation grant to make a new Molecularium show for digital domes.
...
"If you are doing something that makes a positive impact, it drives you to keep pushing that idea further to reach broader audiences," says Siegel, a world-renowned nanotechnology pioneer. He was amazed at the transformation that one screening of Molecularium had upon his young granddaughter. After viewing the film, she seemed to be looking for atoms and molecules everywhere, and seeing the world around her with new eyes.
