Note: Rigorous Academic Work Not Published in the Open Literature.

Conducted a plethora of academic research throughout my career—but much of it, while peer-reviewed and scrutinized internally under Non-Disclosure Agreements, was not published in the open literature due to its confidential nature and the policy of various organizations that did not want it published for business competitive reasons.

Below is a brief overview of some of the original research conducted that was published internally—but not in the open literature:

Shell Oil Company

  • Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC): Pioneered spectroscopic techniques to use the time domain as a distinguishing characteristic of polynuclear aromatics found in crude oil. Typically employed frequency domain spectroscopic methods could not adequately “resolve” the types of compounds found in real world samples-but these newly developed techniques worked well by using the time domain as a distinguishing factor by measuring various fluorescence lifetimes. This work was reviewed at the time by Dr. Rick Smalley of Rice University in Houston, Texas who latter received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in nanotechnology.
  • Surfaced Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS): Brought to Shell this technology which I applied to the microscopic scale. I collaborated with Professor Fred Lytle of Purdue University who had an interest in this new area of research. I successfully used the techniques we developed to enable Shell to win a patent infringement case against Dow Chemical for over $650M in 1985.

Coherent, Inc.

  • Conducted research on a variety of laser dyes to be used in conjunction with the astigmatically-compensated single-frequency ring dye lasers that I helped develop to enable Dr. Steve Chu (current Secretary of Energy) to perform his “optical molasses” experiments that won him the Nobel Prize in Physics.

Newport Corporation

  • Developed novel, state-of-the art closed-loop active vibration control theories, processes and systems that enabled new types of semiconductor devices and processes by firms like Intel Corp., AMD and Texas Instruments.
  • Developed and proved an analytical theorem for predicting the efficiency and effectiveness of vibration control systems with researchers from the University of Arizona. These theorems are still used today throughout the semiconductor industry and predict the “maximum relative motion” of a scientific breadboard to sophisticated semiconductor equipment processing unit.

Etec, Inc.

  • Researched and developed the first commercially-available, high speed optical MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) test & measurement system used by JDS Uniphase. Worked closely with scientists from Electroglass, Inc. to develop test models and procedures.

Zyvex Corporation

  • Recognized Principal Investigator of a $25M grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to research and develop methods to fabricate MEMS tools to ultimately enable molecular manufacturing (see the attached invited presentation to Australian government at the request of the White House).
  • Developed and implemented a 12 year detailed technology roadmap for the research and development of both “Top-down” and Bottom-up” nanotechnologies to create the capability of atomically precise manufacturing with collaboration of over 6 universities around the world.
  • Gained recognition in the business community as a pioneer in the commercialization of nanotechnology through the development of a rigorous new product development and marketing model still used today by nanotech firms (asked to take part in an interview for the Harvard Business School to develop a case study about Zyvex).
  • Worked closely with both Dr. Rick Smalley (Nobel Prize in Chemistry) and Dr. Alan MacDiarmid (Nobel Prize in Chemistry) on a detailed technology roadmap to use nanotechnology to rid our dependence on foreign oil. This was presented personally to President George W. Bush and members of the US Senate.
  • Was a co-editor of the seminal work entitled “Micro/Nano Roadmap” which reviewed virtually all research being conducted throughout the world on MEMS and nanotechnology that proposed an international technology roadmap to harness the power of these emerging technologies. This work was done mainly with scientists from Sandia National Laboratories.

United States Government

  • Appointed participant in White House Executive councils including the Startup America Initiative, Emerging Technologies Interagency Policy Coordination Committee on Nanotechnology, and the White House Interagency Working Group on Advanced Manufacturing. Drafted and submitted numerous proposals to advance US Government-wide programs that foster home-grown innovation, entrepreneurship and partnerships to high-impact challenges.
  • Created and executed novel Business-Government interaction and partnership models to foster enhanced public-private partnerships. Examples include the SECURE and FutureTECH programs, Center of Innovation at the US Air Force Academy in partnership with Intel Corporation, and a DHS S&T Business Council that enables effective communication and interaction between government and industry.
  • Developed detailed processes and procedures for the execution of government-leading technology foraging activities at the US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate.
  • Responsible for the Research Council of the US Department of Homeland Security as well as the Executive Director at the Executive Office of the President for the National Science & Technology Committee.
  • Considered the “go to” guy in matters related to nanotechnology and regularly attend meetings at the White House, Environmental Protection Agency, National Science Foundation, DARPA and Joint Chiefs of Staff related to classified research.
  • Active participant in scientific research that I cannot discuss at all.
