Designed, built and tested several
fiber based laser delivery systems, including solid fiber
systems for an erbium laser at Pharos
Optics, Inc. and a hollow fiber for a carbon
dioxide laser at Medical Optics
Division of Kaiser Aerospace and Electronics.
Design elements included input and output coupling optics for
single mode and multimode configurations.
Provided mechanical packaging for two RF products at
Technologies. A base transmitter licensed from
Motorola was repackaged to Sonik’s specifications and a
die-cast housing was designed for a consumer product with
emphasis on esthetics and thermal management. Both units
required extensive RF shielding features.
Mechanical design for five Cartesian
Technologies, Inc. process automation products
utilizing robotics for the pharmaceutical industry. Each
project included product specification, mechanical system
design, detailed design documentation, and design
Utilized 2D and 3D mechanical design tools to configure a
prototype Automated Teller Machine (ATM) for Greenland
Corporation. Improved the user interface by
incorporating human factors in both the mechanical design and
Designed and built prototypes of several configurations of
very high resolution active, covert video surveillance and
night vision systems for Nyx
Managed, engineered, built, and tested a prototype 100 Watt
thermophotovoltaic generator for a U.S. Army program conducted
at Quantum Technology.
Designed and conducted proof-of-concept demonstrations for
Medical Technologies’ head mounted displays for
surgical applications. Contributed to the prototype design
incorporating human factors, optical, and mechanical features.
Designed and tested precision ruggedized mirror adjustment
and locking mechanisms, optical collimators, fiber couplers,
and optical attenuators for commercial and industrial
Contributed to the development, testing, and manufacture of
a low loss hollow fiber for infrared optical transmission in
conjunction with Rutgers University,
encompassing optimization of coupling, fiber transmission, and
mode propagation characteristics.
Starting from a physician’s concept of the desired tissue
effect, developed a prototype laser thermokeratoplasty system
(refractive surgery) for Laser
Biotech. A unique laser and beam delivery system
was utilized to demonstrate the feasibility of the refractive
