Smoltek congratulate our first industrial PhD

Muham­mad Amin has defend­ed his the­sis suc­cess­ful­ly. The oppo­nent was Pro­fes­sor François Béguin, from Poz­nan Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, Poland, a dis­tin­guished pro­fes­sor in the field of super capacitors.

The research by our indus­tri­al PhD has led to deep­ened sci­en­tif­ic under­stand­ing of how Smoltek’s unique tech­nol­o­gy can be imple­ment­ed for var­i­ous appli­ca­tions. In par­tic­u­lar, it has led to demon­stra­tion of our on-chip sol­id state capac­i­tor solu­tion that is now gen­er­at­ing seri­ous inter­est from the semi­con­duc­tor industry.

We con­grat­u­late Dr Amin on his big achieve­ment – both from per­son­al and com­pa­ny perspectives!
