November 24, 2008: Hague Corp., a solar technology and quantum dot manufacturing company, has appointed Ghassen E. Jabbour to the position of chief science officer, to lead development and characterization of thin-film quantum dot solar cell products at recently acquired Solterra Renewable Technologies.
Jabbour is the director of flexible and organic electronics development at the Flexible Display Center (FDC) and has been a professor of chemical and materials engineering at Arizona State University since 2006. He is also the technical advisory board leader on Optoelectronic Materials, Devices, and Encapsulation at FDC. He has been selected to the Asahi Shimbun 100 New Leaders of the USA and has received the Presidential Award for Excellence from the Hariri Foundation in 1997. His research experience encompasses flexible-roll-to-roll-electronics and displays, smart textile, moisture and oxygen barrier technology, transparent conductors, organic light emitting devices, organic and hybrid photovoltaics, organic memory storage, organic thin film transistors, combinatorial discovery of materials, nano and macro printed devices, micro and nanofabrication, biosensors, and quantum simulations of electronic materials. He has authored and co-authored more than 300 publications and has edited several books and symposia proceedings involving organic photonics and electronics, and nanotechnology.
“We are extremely pleased to have someone as talented and accomplished as Dr. Jabbour join our team as CSO,” said Stephen Squires, president and CEO of Solterra, in a statement. “Ghassen’s deep understanding of nanotechnology and photovoltaics will drive our future product development.”
