Founder's Image

Rob Meagley is an inventor, scientist and artist with interests in processes and materials for nano-, bio- and MEMS technology. He founded ONE Nanotechnologies, LLC, in August of 2007 to create and market proprietary technology for the detection and characterization of biomarkers, and chemical agents as well as to provide consulting services to the nanotechnology, MEMS and biotechnology communities. In late 2007 success in size/shape selection of proteins by inorganic surface was followed by success in 2008 with selective films  for military chemical sensors. Both programs have led to the development of new deposition technology. These biomarker characterization, chemical agent detection and film deposition technologies are reflected strongly in ONE Nano’s IP Portfolio.

Rob holds a BS from the University of Maryland, College Park (89) and Ph.D. from the University of Delaware (’96) in pharmaceutical synthesis and was a post doctoral fellow at Cornell University (96) the University of California, Berkeley (97). He joined Intel Corporation in 1998, starting with a brief stint in the CMP materials Group, then in the Lithography Materials Group in 1998 (with another brief stint in the Commodity Chemicals Group in 2002), and became the Litho Materials Group's manager in early 2003. In August of 2004 he was named Intel's Researcher-in-Residence at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and served there for 3 years as Intel’s Principle Investigator and Engineering Manager. The team, Molecules for Advanced Patterning (MAP), was focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of advanced lithography materials.

He also helped to found three environmental health & safety teams centered on new chemical approval and review, training and nanomaterials. There were several Intel Sponsored Research Programs that he helped to create and mentor at other institutions including: the University of Wisconsin, Madison, the University of Texas, Austin, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the University of Delaware, Newark, Cornell University, NIST and the Institute of Microelectronics (IMEL), NCSR “Demokritos”, Attiki, Greece. He advised the International Sematech Resist Advisory Group (RAG, 2000-2004) & Arch Interface (2001-2002), and the University of Wisconsin, Madison Nano-Science and Engineering Center ( (2002-2009). In December of 2010 he became Senior Research Fellow at the Foresight Institute.

Rob was awarded the University of Delaware's Presidential Citation for Outstanding Achievement in 2005 and earned numerous corporate awards at Intel, including 2 for Environmental Excellence and holds 42 US patents (so far). He has published and lectured extensively on materials science and chemistry. His research interests include: bio- and nanotechnology, nanostructured materials, pre-organization and self-assembly phenomena, however he also continues to be active in health and safety matters as well, particularly as applied to nanomaterials, VOCs and environmental plastic waste.

Rob is also a prolific artist, in 2D (and occasionally 3D mixed media. He minored in print making at the University of Maryland and studied with Tadeusz Lapinski
