Alcorix was founded in 2014 by Dr. Nicolaie “Mike” Moldovan with the mission to develop innovative and powerful devices that push the limits on resolution.
Our motivation is to enable our customers to realize their great ideas with superior micro and nanofabrication. We will work with you to get the optimal balance between functionality, microfabrication capabilities, and funding level. Our staff has worked on award-winning creative projects on several continents.
We pride ourselves in maintaining a small firm feel by treating each client with care and consideration. We’ve hand-picked a high-quality team of scientist and innovators with the diverse skills needed to solve any problem. No issue is too big or too small.
Our mission is to bring advances in micro and nanofabrication into the industry to further accelerate innovation for unprecedented resolution and precision.
Dr. Nicolaie Moldovan, Ph.D.
Founder and President
Dr. Nicolaie (Mike) Moldovan founded Alcorix Co. in 2014 to create superior microfabrication products for fellow scientists. Prior to founding Alcorix, he was a Senior Scientist and MEMS Lead Scientist at Advanced Diamond Technologies (2006-2016) where he developed and brought over 20 products to market. He has also served as Research Assistant Professor at Northwestern University (2002-2006) and as Assistant Physicist at Argonne National Laboratory (1998-2002).
Dr. Moldovan obtained his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Bucharest, Romania. He has over 150 peer reviewed journal articles, two R&D 100 awards, and 19 patent applications (7 granted).
Hongjun Zeng, Ph.D.
Dr. Hongjun Zeng is an expert who developed multiple MEMS/ Nanodevices and advanced microfabrication techniques in the last 20 years. Before joining Alcorix, he has served as an R&D director at the Advanced Diamond Technologies, in charge of developing novel thin-film diamond products for different industrial/academic applications by using surface micromachining technologies. He was also an engineer at Foxconn and a research scientist at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He authored 60 peer-reviewed papers and 13 patent applications (5 approved).
