Aliso Viejo, CA, March 21, 2005 – XsunX, Inc. (OTC BB: XSNX), developer of Power Glass™ -- an innovative solar technology that allows glass windows to produce electricity from the power of the sun, announced today that Dr. John Moore has joined the Company’s Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Moore brings over 35 years of experience as a recognized leader in the development of advanced coatings, surface engineering, and thin-film processing.
“Dr. Moore’s scientific, business, and leadership skills have helped forge the advancement of thin-film sciences,” stated Dr. Arun Madan, Chairman of the XsunX Scientific Advisory Board. “John’s wealth of knowledge and resources should prove to be very helpful, and I am looking forward to collaborating with him in the completion of our Power Glass™ project,” concluded Dr. Madan.
“As the head of the Materials Engineering Department at the Colorado School of Mines, I have the unique opportunity to help guide new technologies from the laboratory into practical everyday uses,” stated Dr. Moore. “The Power Glass project addresses two very important aspects facing energy consumption today: finding new ways to supply power and increasing the efficiency of building materials and components. Power Glass addresses both of these issues head on and provides the opportunity to deliver a clean renewable source of energy while increasing the efficiency of how buildings operate. I’m looking forward to working with the XsunX team in delivering a marketable solution.”
Dr. John J. Moore is a Materials Scientist who holds the position of Trustees' Professor and Head of Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. Dr. Moore is also Director of the interdisciplinary graduate program in Materials Science and Director of the Advanced Coatings and Surface Engineering Laboratory, ACSEL, at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden. Dr. Moore established the Advanced Coatings and Surface Engineering Laboratory (ACSEL) at the Colorado School of Mines in 1994. The main objective of ACSEL is to perform fundamental research in advanced PVD and CVD systems that will aid the U.S. thin films, coatings and surface engineering industry. ACSEL is a national and international leader in research on advanced coatings, surface engineering and thin film processing.
Dr. Moore was awarded a B.Sc. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Surrey, UK, in 1966, a Ph.D. in Industrial Metallurgy from the University of Birmingham, UK, in 1969, and a D.Eng. from the School of Materials of the University of Birmingham, UK, in 1996. Dr. Moore worked as a Student Apprentice at Stewarts and Lloyds Ltd., UK, from 1962 to 1966, and as Manager of Industrial Engineering and Production Control at Birmid-Qualcast Industries Ltd., UK, from 1969 to 1974. Prior to his appointment at the Colorado School of Mines, Dr. Moore served as Professor & Head, Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Auckland, New Zealand, from 1986 to 1989); Professor of Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, USA, from 1979 to 1986), and Senior Lecturer of Chemical Metallurgy at Sandwell College, England, from 1974 to 1979. Dr. Moore's research interests and activities include physical (PVD) and chemical (CVD) vapor deposition of thin films and coatings; synthesis and processing of advanced ceramic, intermetallic and composite materials using plasma and combustion synthesis techniques; synthesis, processing and properties of biomaterials; and powder metallurgy processing of advanced materials. He has published more than 500 papers in materials science and engineering journals, holds13 patents, and has been the author or co-auth or editor of 9 books. Dr. Moore is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials (UK), a Fellow ASM International, a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society, and a Chartered Engineer, (C.Eng.), in the UK. Dr. Moore is also an Honorary Professor and has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Moscow State Institute of Steels and Alloys, Russia.
Based in Aliso Viejo, California, XsunX is the developer of Power Glass - an innovative solar technology that allows glass windows to produce electricity from the power of the sun. This proprietary process is intended to allow manufacturers to apply a transparent and photovoltaic glazing to glass and other transparent substrates. When XsunX glazing is exposed to light, the light energy is converted into electrical energy for use as a power source. XsunX believes that its solar electric glazing technology has a number of major market opportunities in the worldwide architectural glass, optical film and plastics markets.
