With a unique expertise spanning optical microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), cavity optomechanics, precision metrology, and various state-of-the-art optoelectronic devices in dielectric materials, as well as compound and elemental semiconductors, Advanced Optical Microsystems provides expert consulting and expert witness services in the following areas:

  • Rapid turnaround CAD services for generating solid models and lithographic mask layouts (25 years of experience with AutoCAD, 20 years w/ Solidworks)
  • MEMS actuator design, simulation, and analysis (electrostatic, electrothermal, piezoelectric)
  • Active and optoelectronic device development with a focus on vertical-cavity diode lasers and amplifiers (VCSELs, VECSELs, and VCSOAs)
  • Epitaxial materials optimization (AlInGaAs, InGaAsP, SiGe, and related alloys)
  • Micro- and nanofabrication process development and troubleshooting
  • Passive optical element design (general optical interference coatings designed and analyzed using TMM, Bragg mirrors, filters, and more)
  • Thin film dielectric deposition processes via evaporation and sputtering, plus relevant characterization methods (spectrophotometry, ellipsometry, SEM, AFM)
  • Technology strategy (IP evaluation, literature search, etc.) and patent litigation expert witness services (reverse engineering, IP validity / claims review, ITC actions)
