Dr. Richard Nebel

President

rick-nebel

Dr. Nebel is a recognized expert on Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). He spent the first 30 years of his career at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Director’s Post-Doc, staff member, section leader and group leader. He worked in the Controlled Thermonuclear Research (CTR), Theory (T) division, and X Division. He specialized in nonlinear simulations, plasma theory, and electrostatic confinement fusion devices.

In 2007 Dr. Nebel joined Energy Matter Conversion Corporation (EMC2) as president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board of directors. He left EMC2 in 2010 and founded Tibbar Plasma Technologies, Inc. where he is currently the President. While at Tibbar Technologies he discovered previously unknown solutions of the MHD equations which led Tibbar Technologies to invent a simple plasma device with helical electrodes could be used as an electrical transformer. They have demonstrated this plasma-based transformer device in the laboratory and are currently developing the concept.

Dr. Nebel received his B.S. degree, MS degree and Phd from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. He received honors as a James scholar, an ERDA Trainee and a University Fellow. His thesis advisor was Professor George Miley.

Dr. William Gibson

Senior Experimentalist

Prior to working at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Dr. Gibson worked at various aerospace companies, including Martin Marietta Astronautics Group, McDonnell Douglas, and NASA’s Johnson Space Center. At Tibbar Tech, Dr. Gibson has been responsible for the construction of the new Shiner machine and day-to-day lab operations. He holds a Ph.D in Mathematical Analysis from the University of Houston and both B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. John Finn

Senior Plasma Physicist

Prior to this assignment, Mr. Moser was the Exelon Nuclear Corporate Asset Manager for Reactors and Reactor Internals. In this role he developed programs, processes and techniques for inspection, evaluation, mitigation, repair/replacements for original and uprated operations. As a result of his involvement with Asset Management Mr. Moser has either been the Team Lead or Team Member on 8 Nuclear Energy Institute Top Industry Practice Awards. In 2005, Mr. Moser was honored by the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) as the recipient of the Nuclear Excellence Award for his innovative approaches in resolving equipment degradation problems in Budapest Hungary.

Before joining Exelon, Mr. Moser was the Chief Inspector for Chicago Bridge and Iron Company (CB&I) and responsible for quality for nuclear, military, petrochemical, water treatment and other fabricated product lines. While at CB&I; Keith Moser held various other position of responsibility in Design, Manufacturing and Construction of Nuclear Power Plants and Nuclear Navy components. This provided invaluable experience in understanding, developing and performing Asset Management for heavy equipment that include steam generators, reactor/internals, pressurizers and turbine generators.

Mr. Moser received his Bachelor of Engineering from LeTourneau University in 1980 and Masters of Business from Olivet University in 1990.
