Expert in Siloxane Chemistry
Expert ID: 732272 Michigan, USA
Semiconductor Silicon Metal: He has over 25 years in the silicon materials industry where he has developed silicon processes with 5 patents in this space as a Scientist and Project manager. He worked with R&D project team to identify and eliminate impurities affecting silicon wafers. Working with Six Sigma Black Belts, production, engineering, and marketing gave improved quality and understand supply chain. He has a particular expertise in Phosphorus and Boron Impurities in this space. His understanding of fundamental mechanisms involving phosphorous and boron was critical to improving manufacturing purity in silicon metal produced by CVD and FBR.
Silica Treatment: He has expertise as a metal oxide modification specialist (bonding chemist). He has a particular expertise in Adsorptive Separations technology materials where he successfully converted separations “art” into useful filtration materials for decontaminating industrial streams and for HPLC and SPE bioseparations. He developed over 10 patents in this space involving bonded phase materials and surface modifications.
UV Cure Polymers: Expert has expertise as a Scientist in the area of rapid cure costings and sealants. He has been active in work with UV cured coating as both art and science. He mastered both. He holds over 10 patents from hard coatings containing acrylates to softer coatings with silicones and other related materials.
