Peter Thiel Joins Nanotronics Imaging Board After $7 Million Investment
Nanotronics Imaging today launched a new company blog to share weekly insights and news from the world of optical microscopy, optics, and real-time nanoscale imaging

Brooklyn, NY -- Feb 19, 2014 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- Founders Fund Partner Peter Thiel has been named to the Board of Directors for Nanotronics Imaging. Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies, was the first outside investor in Facebook and is widely regarded as one of the most visionary investors in Silicon Valley.


Nanotronics Imaging, a leading developer of optical inspection tools for the semiconductor industry, recently completed a $7 million Series B financing round from Founders Fund, a San Francisco-based technology investment firm that has backed successful companies including Palantir, SpaceX, Facebook, ZocDoc and The Climate Corporation.


The news was posted on a new company blog launched this week that will begin posting news, opinions, and insights from the world of optical microscopy, optics, and real-time nanoscale imaging. According to Nanotronics founder Matthew Putman, the new blog is a way for him to share some of his excitement about the cutting edge technologies his company is bringing to market. "By combining the very best in microscopy hardware with software that automates processes that can take a human hours to perform, we are hoping to save companies untold amounts of time and money.


"And along the way, we want to share our passion for technology and looking at the world in a whole new way," he said.  "So this blog is a place where we can explain the technology in layman's terms and share some of the amazing images from a world that few people will ever get to see."
