Quantum Solar Power Corporation Names New CTO

Santa Fe, NM | Posted on March 4th, 2010

Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham joined Quantum Solar in December 2009. Prior to coming to Quantum Solar, Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham was Lead Scientist for novel photovoltaic devices in the Sargent Research Group, in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. From 2004 to 2006, Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Photonic Nanostructures Research Group in the Physics department of the University of British Columbia.

Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham obtained degrees in Engineering Physics and Mathematics from Queen's University in Ontario. He then completed his doctoral thesis on semiconducting polymers at the University of British Columbia in the department of Chemistry.

At the University of Toronto, Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham made key contributions to the development of photovoltaic devices based on solution-processed, infrared-responsive quantum dots. His postdoctoral work at the University of British Columbia involved an important advance to the use of quantum dots in quantum information processing.

"We are looking forward to working with Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham as he builds upon a legacy of success to establish a clear science direction for our revolutionary Next Generation photovoltaic devices," states Daryl Ehrmantraut, President and CEO. Dr. Gary Leach, Quantum Science Lead adds "We are delighted to have Dr. Pattantyus-Abraham on board. His in-depth knowledge of photovoltaic technologies will be a huge asset to our efforts."

About Quantum Solar Power
Quantum Solar Power Corp has developed a "Next Generation Device" (NGD) solar cell technology. Quantum's NGD is a patent pending, functioning laboratory model that demonstrates its utility in solar power conversion without the necessity of utilizing expensive silicon semiconductor-based technologies. By relying on Quantum's NGD principle the conversion of light energy to electricity can be more than tripled over other low cost PV technologies. Accordingly, Quantum has the potential for manufacturing solar cells at significantly less cost per watt than current producers, without any limit to deployment on the terawatt scale. The Company's headquarters is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico and its web address is www.quantumsp.com.
