BEVERLY, Mass., June 8, 2010 — Black silicon maker SiOnyx Inc. announced the addition of Jeannine Sargent, former CEO of Oerlikon Solar, to its board of directors to help guide advancement of black silicon in solar and imaging applications.
Sargent brings more than 20 years of technology management experience to SiOnyx, the company said. She has held executive roles in other engineering-intensive organizations, including Veeco, Voyan Technology, Gasonics International and Tencor Instruments (now KLA-Tencor). She is currently at Crosslink Capital working in their Energy and Core Technology/Semiconductor Practice.
Commonly referred to as black silicon, SiOnyx’s novel laser processing technique dramatically enhances the electro-optical performance of photonic devices in a range of applications from simple light detection to advanced digital imaging and photovoltaics, the company said. Devices built using SiOnyx’s proprietary process deliver hundreds of times more sensitivity to light than traditional silicon, representing a significant breakthrough in the development of smaller, cheaper, high-performing photonic devices.
