Santa Ana, CA | October 17, 2005

QuantumSphere, Inc., the leading manufacturer of metallic nanopowders for applications in aerospace, defense, energy and other markets demanding advanced material applications, announced it has named Benjamin Mork, Ph.D. as Senior Scientist and Technical Liaison to address the robust partner and customer demand for QuantumSphere’s products. Dr. Mork will collaborate between QuantumSphere’s current and potential customers and partners to identify their specific business and technical challenges. As a result, QuantumSphere will accelerate its commercialization initiatives by seamlessly and rapidly delivering and integrating QuantumSphere’s products and solutions in the market. Dr. Mork’s extensive on-site field deployments will also provide critical insight on industry-specific problems shared by other companies, thereby enabling QuantumSphere to understand, proactively respond to and deliver new, revenue-generating products to market. This news follows a previous announcement that QuantumSphere opened a large, new manufacturing facility as a direct result of customer demand from multinational corporations, government agencies, and other major industrial partners. QuantumSphere is the only supplier of the world’s highest quality nano nickel/cobalt alloy and other magnetic, conductive and catalytic metallic nanopowders, including QSI-nano™ nickel (n-Ni), QSI-nano™ silver, QSI-nano™ copper, and other proprietary alloys. These materials will replace platinum as the main catalyst in a variety of fuel cells and other membrane electrode assemblies and provide a renewable source of power.
