Rae Named CEO of NanoMaterials Innovation Center

February 15, 2012


The NanoMaterials Innovation Center LLC (NMIC) recently appointed Alan Rae, Ph.D., its CEO. Rae reportedly has extensive experience in product commercialization and business development in ceramics, electronics, and alternative energy. Most recently, as founder of TPF Enterprises LLC, he conducted SBIR- and BAA-funded research for the U.S. Air Force and Army Corps of Engineers. He consulted on topics ranging from solar module construction and cell structure commercialization to graphene commercialization, novel circuit board materials, ceramic components, and electronics waterproofing. Rae is a NYSERDA Entrepreneur in Residence and serves on its Directed Energy Committee. He is active in industry organizations such as ANSI-TC229 (Nanotechnologies) and iNEMI, where he serves as director of Research.

“NMIC represents a unique facility,” Rae said. “Located at the Ceramic Corridor Innovation Center and a wholly owned subsidiary of Alfred Technology Resources Inc. (ATRI), it has close and symbiotic relationships with Alfred University and Clarkson University, and the foundation has been laid for cooperation with other great institutions, including Alfred State College, SUNY Buffalo, and SUNY Binghamton. NMIC is also a unique center of excellence in leading-edge microwave processing of materials for high-efficiency phosphors and other applications.”
