Coherent Laser Radar for Vehicles and Navigation

Coherent laser radar (often miscalled lidar) is an ultrasensitive method for measurement of distance and radial velocity. It uses low power CW lasers and has excellent resistance to ambient light and interference from other laser radars. I'm doing a design for a unit suitable for vehicles and small ships (e.g. tugboats).

Doubling the Resolution of Solid Immersion Microscopes

This is a very exciting development, in cooperation with a semiconductor equipment manufacturer, I'm building a visible-light scanning microscope with six times higher lateral resolution than is possible with a normal microscope. It's based on my Ph.D. thesis work and some things I did at IBM long ago.

Summary Judgment Granted In Yufa v. Lockheed Martin

Based in large part on my expert reports and reverse engineering of accused products, our Motion for Summary Judgment was granted. In the order, Judge Beverly O'Connell stated that the defendant "...has shown that Plaintiff has failed to produce evidence to support his claims for patent infringement."

Three New Projects

Three interesting new engineering projects have come in: a microplate reader subsystem for water quality assays; a sensor front end with very stringent size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints; and a scanning microscopy development system.
