Dr. Martin Moskovits Will Speak At TAPPI June Conference

Edmonton, Canada | Posted on March 31st, 2009

TAPPI and Alberta Ingenuity Fund are co-sponsoring the 2009 International Conference on Nanotechnology for the Forest Products Industry, scheduled for June 23-26, 2009 in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. The theme of this year's event is "Unlocking the Potential of Nano-Enabled Biomaterials."

Dr. Martin Moskovits will make a keynote presentation, "Nanooptics: Illuminating Nanostructures," on Friday, June 26. He is Chief Technology Officer of API Nanotronics Corp. (OTCBB:APIA) and President of API's NanoOpto division. The company is dedicated to designing and manufacturing optical components and optical sensors based on proprietary nanostructures and nanofabrication technologies.

From 2000 to 2007 Dr. Moskovits was Susan and Bruce Worster Dean of Science at the University of California Santa Barbara, where he participated in the establishment of the California Nanosystems Institute and the Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies.

In 1965 he co-founded OHM Distributors and Manufacturers Ltd., an electronics manufacturing company which was sold in 1968. He has degrees in Physics and Chemistry from the University of Toronto. He received his PhD in 1971 in Physical Chemistry and was employed as a materials scientist by Alcan International, Kingston, Ont. He returned to the University of Toronto in 1973, eventually attaining the rank of Professor of Chemistry in 1982. From 1993-1999 he was Chair of the Department of Chemistry at University of Toronto.

He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Optical Society of America and the Royal Society of Canada. He is the author or co-author of over 260 technical papers and listed as inventor on 18 patents.

Dr. Moskovits' presentation is part of a technical program including more than 40 presentations. Also conference delegates will tour Canada's National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT) on Tuesday, June 23. Located on the University of Alberta campus in Edmonton, this 20,000 m2 research facility was founded in 2001. NINT is an integrated, multi-disciplinary institution with researchers in physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, informatics, pharmacy and medicine. Its objective is to discover design rules for nanotechnology and develop platforms for building nanosystems and materials that are constructed for specific applications. Delegates will hear brief presentations from NINT scientists and enjoy a reception with light refreshments.

This internationally known event brings together leading researchers, industry experts, government representatives and other stakeholders to share advances, perspectives and discuss new ideas and breakthrough concepts on nanotechnology-based advances.
