Peter Cabauy, PhD

Peter Cabauy is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of City Labs, Inc. In 2002, he received his PhD from the University of Michigan in Applied Physics. His thesis research focused on quantum information physics at Argonne National Laboratories (ANL), where he collaborated and co-authored publications with Dr. Paul Benioff, a pioneering figure in quantum computing.

In 2003, he founded and directed the Office of Entrepreneurial Science at Florida International University (FIU), where he provided guidance on intellectual property matters and laid the foundation for the university’s technology incubator program. In 2005, Dr. Cabauy co-founded City Labs, Inc., leveraging his combined expertise in technology, theoretical physics, and entrepreneurship to structure the company and advance its product line.

Under Dr. Cabauy’s leadership, City Labs has built a strong patent portfolio and is introducing a new class of betavoltaics to expand its commercial reach into medical implants, wireless sensors, and space satellite applications.

In addition to his work at City Labs, Dr. Cabauy served on the board of FIU’s University Research Foundation from 2013-2016.

Ants, with their minute energy consumption ranging from nanowatts to microwatts, masterfully sense, compute, and forage, all powered by short-term chemical energy. This marvel of nature hints at the immense potential of nuclear micropower. By harnessing our tritium power source and its incredible longevity, we can enable previously impossible feats, opening a new horizon of innovation in sensors, microelectronics, and new technologies.
