MENLO PARK, CA | Posted on August 23rd, 2007

"Paul's experience in the display industry is a great addition to Unidym as we enter the transparent electrode market," said Art Swift, Unidym's CEO. "He is widely recognized as one of the most knowledgeable experts in display technologies. In addition, his broad background in materials science and the electronics industry will enable us to move forward with other applications of our intellectual property. Paul's skills and expertise are an excellent addition to Unidym's growing leadership team."

"Unidym's technologies can lend themselves to important applications in a number of diverse areas: touch panels, flat panel displays, solar energy, and flexible electronics," commented Drzaic. "Unidym has developed core strength in fabricating materials and devices based on its carbon nanotube technology. Unidym's impressive intellectual property portfolio also opens up potential for partnerships and licensing opportunities in market areas such as life sciences and structural materials. I am excited to be able to participate in realizing the potential of Unidym."

Paul comes to Unidym from Alien Technology Corporation, where he had served as Vice President of Advanced Development. He managed the development of unique technology applied to both flat panel displays and to flexible RFID solutions. This effort resulted in key technologies and processes for flexible electronics fabrication, which enabled the development of novel wireless sensors. In parallel, Paul crafted and managed the company's IP portfolio.

Paul's background in display technology includes a significant role in the early stages of E Ink, serving as their first Director of Technology. In addition to overseeing collaborative efforts with E Ink's major industry partners, he led a group of scientists and engineers in award-winning work that included materials development, semiconductor device development, display system integration, device characterization and the reliability of novel "electronic ink" materials.

Prior to E Ink, Paul had a long tenure at Taliq Corporation, a subsidiary of Raychem Corp., where he established himself as one of the industry's key researchers in liquid crystal science and technology. His publications include numerous articles in various journals and symposia proceedings, plus an extensive book concerning liquid crystal technology. He holds over 50 U.S. Patents in display, flexible electronics, printed electronics and RFID technologies. Paul has consulted for various Fortune 100 companies as a recognized industry expert in display technologies.

Paul graduated with a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Notre Dame and subsequently earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University.
