About Juan Schneider
Nanotechnology("nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. We’re talking about things in the range of 1 to 100 nanometers. That’s really small.
Physicist, inventor and businessman, Juan has developed technologies, patents, and products contributing to the development of nano science and nanotechnology over the past twenty years. Since 2001, he has developed molecular coating processes and ultra-thin films, being, to date, the author of six granted patents covering 14 countries in Europe, Asia and North America. His work has received recognition by the industry with awards such as NASA Nano50 in 2004, at Semicon West with technology showcase 2005, and Nano Japan in 2005 for its solutions to the micro and nano fabrication of surfaces. His work has also received recognition from IRAP-National Research Council of Canada for Innovation Technology Excellence in 2007. Founder of two technology companies, he has accumulated significant experience in business development, intellectual property, and project management. He was guest lecturer at the Law School of the University of Montreal between 2007 and 2010. He serves as instructor at the Université de Montréal since 2004 and taught at the Saidye Bronfman Centre from 1995 to 2007. Juan is a consultant for technology companies since 1996. Between 2011 and 2013, he was hired to set up and manage the nano-mineralogy laboratory for Photonic Knowledge a Canadian corporation specialized in core drilling analysis for mining exploration.
