BluGlass Ltd of Silverwater, Australia – which was spun off from the III-nitride department of Macquarie University in 2005 – has appointed Brad Siskavich to a full-time role as VP of business development, based in the USA and leading the expansion of BluGlass’ custom services business EpiBlu Pty Ltd, amongst other things.

BluGlass is commercializing its proprietary low-temperature remote-plasma chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) process for manufacturing indium gallium nitride (InGaN)-based LEDs, power electronics and solar cells, offering advantages including higher performance and lower cost, it is claimed.

Siskavich has more than 20 years’ experience in developing, marketing and commercializing new technologies in start-up and high-growth environments in the compound semiconductor, solar photovoltaic, laser, photonics and optoelectronics industries. He previously worked in senior research and business development roles at companies including Emcore, Oxford Instruments and Masimo Semiconductor.

The subsidiary EpiBlu is BluGlass’ service arm and offers specialized custom epitaxy, foundry and characterization services at its facility in Sydney, Australia. EpiBlu will continue to expand its operations, providing both MOCVD and BluGlass’ unique low temperature RPCVD services. This revenue-generating business also creates new opportunities to introduce RPCVD to customers in the opto-electronics industry.

The appointment represents “a new commitment to building our custom service revenues,” says BluGlass’ managing director Giles Bourne. “He brings significant industry expertise to BluGlass, with deep research and business development experience across the sector,” he adds. “His role has a global focus for the EpiBlu service business; and provides us with a dedicated resource based in the US to develop export markets there for our RPCVD technology.”
