Rob advises clients and obtains protection for inventions directed to optics, photonics, opto-electronics, semiconductors, laser technologies, image processing, video compression, virtual reality, software, and telecommunications, among other technologies.  He also counsels clients on intellectual property strategy, portfolio development, and protection of trade secrets.

Rob’s optical physics background includes earning B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). While at UNLV, he completed experimental work in magneto-optical trapping and optical tweezers. His further experimental work in hyper-Rayleigh scattering from tetrahedral molecules and cryogenic liquids earned him “Best Master’s Thesis for the Year 2000” from the UNLV College of Sciences.

Rob spent nine years in technology companies including Newport Corporation, where he developed photonics automation systems and applications and authored numerous studies for particular photonic devices.  He later joined Intralase, now Abbott Medical Optics, where he assisted in developing femtosecond laser systems for eye surgery applications, gained experience in FDA compliance, and managed a test engineering group. Rob continues to advance his interests in optical physics through his active membership in the Optical Society of America.

Some particular technology areas in which Rob has obtained patent protection include:
•    Integrated optical circuits (IOCs)
•    Laser remote sensing
•    Photonic lantern-based technologies
•    Laser systems for biomedical imaging, therapy, and metrology
•    Optical networking and devices
•    Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy
•    Acoustic and sonar technologies
•    Robotics
•    Control systems
•    Thermal imaging and measurement devices
•    DNA detection using spectroscopy
•    Microfluidic technologies

Rob has spoken on the topic of compliance with the Federal Acquisition Regulations and Bayh-Dole Regulations and has advised technology transfer offices, including recipients of SBIR/STTR grants and other types of Federal funding, on their compliance programs.

Rob is also fluent in Spanish, which assisted him during his research into international technology transfer in Latin America while at the University of New Hampshire School of Law.
