Award-Winning Inventor in 3D Printing, Solar Energy, and Bio-Medical Systems
Prof. Shlomo Magdassi teaches chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Casali Institute of Applied Chemistry and is affiliated with the university's Harvey M. Krueger Family Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. He also holds the Enrique Berman Chair in Solar Energy. His research focuses on colloid science, and in particular on the formation, formulation and applications of novel micro- and nanoparticles. These particles can be used as active components in functional inks and coatings, such as light-absorbing particles for solar energy devices and metal nanoparticles for 2-D and 3-D printing. Prof. Magdassi is the editor of three books, among them The Chemistry of Inkjet Inks. In addition to his scientific publications, he has various inventions on applications of colloids in industrial products. Based on these inventions, commercial activities have evolved, leading to worldwide sales and the establishment of new companies.
