The Work of Darrell Schlom at Cornell University

If you've been following our tweets or Facebook page, you know we recently visited Darrell Schlom at Cornell University to discuss designing a specialized sensor for their MBE system. It's difficult to tell all that Darrell's been involved in over his illustrious career, but he shared some links about what's made him a leading researcher in the field that I share below, so you can check him out yourself. Besides, a little more press never hurts! =)

We're very excited at the work we'll be doing together. A press release is forthcoming.

We've hired an intern!

Colnatec is proud to welcome Cristian Davila, an engineering student at ASU's Polytech campus, as our new intern. In the early days we expect him to work a small number of hours on research projects, but with his numerous talents in product design and engineering, I suspect we'll see him adding hours and contributing significantly to ongoing projects. Welcome, Cristian!

Seeking Intern for Solar Cell experiments

We are looking for a 3rd or 4th year college student in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, materials science or the like to run experiments for our principal scientist, Scott Grimshaw, in our Gilbert, AZ office on a part time basis for 6-7 months, beginning immediately. Work will be focused on our DOE grant for a self-cleaning sensor used in the manufacture of thin film solar cells. Please contact us at marketing@colnatec.com if interested in applying. We may be able to get ASU credit, and we can pay a small stipend. Employment opportunities available if Phase II funding is achieved.

The work will be cutting edge nanotechnology, and we are collaborating with other major universities, such as Cornell and Purdue, as well as major players in thin film photovoltaic manufacturing around the world. Spread the word!

Colnatec gets published in Go Gilbert Magazine!

Here's a link to the magazine article online. The only way to obtain a printed copy, however, is to visit a local grocery store, like AJ's or Fry's. I'm trying to find some additional copies for friends and relatives, so if you get one mailed to you, please let me know!
