Nano expert joins Magnolia Solar board

(November 19, 2010 - Marketwire) -- Magnolia Solar Corporation (OTCBB: MGLT) welcomed Professor Zhong Lin (Z. L.) Wang, Distinguished Professor and Director, Center for Nanostructure Characterization at Georgia Tech, to its Technical Advisory Board (TAB). Professor Wang is a world-renowned expert in nanostructure growth and characterization of semiconductor materials and devices for energy harvesting technology.

Professor Wang has done pioneering work on Zinc Oxide (ZnO), Zinc Sulphide (ZnS) and related materials-based nanostructures, i.e. nanowires and nanorods growth technology, growth demonstration and pioneering work in its applications for energy harvesting technology and other optical sensor applications. His pioneering work in nanogenerators for energy harvesting has been recognized worldwide as one of the 10 most impacting technologies for the next 10-30 years by MIT Technology Review, New Scientist and other International publications. He is an inventor or co-inventor of many U.S. patents and has authored or co-authored more than 650 publications. Professor Wang is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and American Association of Advancement of Science (AAAS).

"Magnolia has several government-funded programs in process right now and we'll use Professor Wang's expertise in nanostructure materials, growth technology and innovative concepts to help us accelerate the development of the critical technologies required to produce Magnolia's high efficiency third generation solar cells. Professor Wang will also be advising us on the development of our intellectual property portfolio and in the patent filing process. Programs that Magnolia will be spending considerable effort on during the remainder of this year and throughout 2011," noted Dr. Ashok K. Sood, president and CEO of Magnolia Solar Corporation.

Magnolia is developing solar cell technology to cover the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared part of the solar spectrum with a nano-based thin-film solar cell technology. For more information, please visit
