Dr. Viswanath “Wish” Krishnamoorthy
President & CEO
Dr. Viswanath “Wish” Krishnamoorthy is the President & CEO and sets the tone for Qynergy’s business. He has a technical/manufacturing background with a knack for developing business & strategic relationships. His focus is on governance and business development. He has a unique talent for evaluating technologies, so he works closely with innovators, collaborators and customers to develop ideas from concept to prototype. He embodies Qynergy’s vision of creating an open environment for sharing ideas and empowering and energizing scientists and engineers to be creative.
Prior to joining Qynergy, Wish worked at Uniroyal Optoelectronics (UOE) as Director of Process Development and Manager of the Fabrication facility. He developed the characterization facility, managed the device fabrication facility, and directed process development efforts. Before joining UOE, Wish’s early career provided him with a strong academic background in a wide range of areas. His doctoral work focused on developing strain relief buffer structures for the InGaAs/GaAs material system, and his designs led to some of the lowest defect density InGaAs material grown on GaAs to-date. He worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Cornell University to develop cost effective, high-efficiency poly-silicon solar cells in collaboration with Mobil Solar Corporation. During this time, he developed processing methodology to improve the modular efficiency of solar cells from about 8% to about 12%. He then rejoined researchers at the University of Florida as a staff scientist, where he worked on ion implantation in silicon, transient enhanced diffusion in silicon, phosphor materials, carbon nanotubes, wide band gap compound semiconductors and other scientific projects. Wish was appointed to the post of Associate Director of the Major Analytical Instrumentation Center in 1999, where he conducted research on novel materials, collaborated on projects, and taught courses in materials analysis and microscopy. He has over 40 publications in refereed journals and proceedings and has delivered over 30 conference presentations.
Wish holds a Bachelor’s degree in Metallurgy from the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras, India, as well as Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Florida.
A critical factor in our success has been our well-equipped, adaptable facilities. With 6500 sq. ft. of work space that houses several labs, our facility simultaneously accommodates a wide variety of research and development projects. And the Qynergy Team isn’t limited to resources within our brick and mortar walls: we’ve developed a network of strategic technical and business partners over many years to complement our in-house capabilities. For many of our R&D projects, we’ve also leveraged key New Mexico facilities including the Advanced Materials Laboratory (AML) and the Manufacturing Training & Technology Center (MTTC) at the University of New Mexico, and Sandia National Laboratories’ Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT). We leverage business relationships and grow our capabilities based on specific applications.
