Meet The Team
Scott Silverman, President
Scott Silverman, President and founder of Varioscale, earned his BSEE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Mr. Silverman has extensive experience in design, development and commercialization of semiconductor capital equipment.
He is currently the Principal Investigator for the RAVEN project Varioscale team. Prior to RAVEN he was the PI for the IARPA CAT project that developed backside sample preparation tools.
Prior to starting Varioscale, he was COO at Revise, Inc., a spin-off from Lincoln Laboratories. Before Revise, he was a research engineer at MIT working for Prof. Hank Smith. His main project at MIT was upgrading an electron beam lithography system, donated by IBM Yorktown Heights, with a custom pattern generator and using the system to support research including X-ray mask fabrication, direct-write quantum devices, and long range coherent optical components applying phase-locking to a holographic generated grating on resist.
Earlier in his career Scott held engineering positions at Hampshire Instruments, Varian Research Center, and Sanders Associates, with research experience in advanced lithography (X-ray, electron and ion beam).
Scott has always been supported by his loving father, a retired US Navy Commander.
Michael DiBattista, Vice President
Michael DiBattista, earned his B.S.E., M.S.E., and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His doctoral research involved studies of the interdiffusion of thin metal/semiconducting transducing films and MEMS hot-plates for use as chemical gas sensors. Dr. DiBattista joined Intel Corporation in 1999, where he was a member of silicon debug tool development group, working on focused ion beam tools for circuit edit applications. He has also previously worked at FEI Company, and Qualcomm Incorporated.
In 2016, he joined Varioscale to help develop novel tools and technologies for the U.S. Government RAVEN program to deprocess and image integrated circuits. Dr. DiBattista has published numerous journal articles and conference presentations on thin film chemical sensors, focused ion beam technology, and circuit edit applications.
