Electro-optics expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree and extensive experience and expertise in optical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, and/or materials science. An electro-optics expert witness should have a deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the market dynamics, market growth, and competitive landscape. In high-profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement.
Electro-optics, also known as photonics, is a branch of engineering, involving devices that operate by the interaction of light with various materials. An electro-optics expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation or a trade secrets dispute. In a litigation scenario, a technical expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as forensic engineering, depositions, a prior art search, expert report preparation, and related consulting activities. In addition, clients may seek an electro-optic expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
Cahn Litigation Services has been approached by numerous clients to locate expert witnesses that can support matters involving electro-optics technology. Whether the case involves:
