mPhase Technologies Names Fred Allen CEO of Nanotech Subsidiary
mPhase Technologies Inc. of Little Falls, N.J., announced that Fred Allen, PhD, has been named CEO of its wholly owned New Jersey-based subsidiary, AlwaysReady Inc., created in April to commercialize the company's nanobatteries and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) -based ultrasensitive magnetometers. "Our initial focus will be on prototype fabrication to test the functionality of both technologies in select applications," said Allen, who has 25 years of experience working at the nanometer scale as a materials scientist. He most recently operated his own consultancy, RADii Solutions LLC. He is the author of over 35 publications and presentations and has 10 patents. Allen joined New Jersey-based Engelhard Corp. in 1987, and over the next two decades conducted research, commercialized products and managed the company’s Technology Assessment Group. He also led its rechargeable lithium-ion battery materials program and managed its Technology Assessment Group. Allen has served as senior vice president of materials for investment firm Advance Nanotech and is cofounder and director of the Greater Garden State Nanotechnology Alliance. He is a member of the New Jersey Technology Council Board, an advisor to the Mid-Atlantic Nanotechnology Alliance and chairman of the Nanotechnology Committee of SMART (Strengthening the Mid-Atlantic Region for Tomorrow).
- The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
