An image sensors expert witness typically has an advanced degree, and professional experience and expertise in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and/or computer science. On behalf of either a plaintiff or defendant, law firm clients call on Cahn Litigation Services to locate expert witnesses to support sensor technology matters, including image sensor litigation. An image sensors expert witness should have deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the image sensor market – market share, market size, market growth and competitive landscape. An image sensors expert witness needs substantive expertise, as well as possess the ability to explain electronic evidence to a judge and jurors.
An image sensors expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation in federal court, a trade secret dispute, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). An expert in image sensor technology might also provide testimony in a torts matter like product liability.
Litigation support by an image sensors expert witness could include reverse engineering, failure analysis, expert opinion, expert report, and courtroom testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work. Whether the case involves a CMOS sensor, camera, CCD sensor, signal processing, medical imaging, thermal imaging, or image processing, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly and provide the right balance of expertise and testimony to support each unique project.
Please Note: All Cahn Litigation expert witness searches are customized to attorneys' precise specifications and preferences. Attorneys are encouraged to discuss search parameters with a Cahn search specialist.

This expert has worked in the night vision imaging field for many years and is quite familiar with various image intensifier technologies including using the Government-developed models to provide detailed analysis of the performance capabilities.
This expert has years of experience in lasers, infrared, electro optical sensors, optics, and systems engineering and analysis. This expert's company also offers product development and proposal/design review preparation. This expert recently led R&D efforts for a Fortune 500 company in the field of advanced thermal imaging for pedestrian detection. This expert was the project manager for several advanced EO testing technology projects including the avalanche photodiode array test station and as the systems engineer and design engineer for passive millimeter wave imaging array development and testing. This expert is fluent with Zemax, MathCAD, MATLAB, as well as sensor and atmospheric modeling software including NV IPM, NVThermIP, PCModWin, PCLnWin, SSCamIP, IICamIP, and IINVD.
This expert was the engineering manager at an infrared technology company and worked as an electro optical and laser systems engineer, scientist, and manager associated with directed energy laser countermeasure programs, infrared detector systems, and atmospheric/system performance modeling. This expert was also employed as a laser engineer with experience in design, testing, and applications of solid state and gas lasers for military, scientific, and industrial use.
This expert has served as a subject-matter expert for litigation several times and has been deposed and testified. For example, this expert was selected as the expert witness regarding a night vision system and its technology performance. This expert reviewed all the proposals, wrote reports and was deposed.
This expert has intimate knowledge and experience in developing signal flows and protocols starting within the image sensor, through the image processor and to various video outputs, including camera throughput at multiple resolutions for preview and further processing, streaming, etc. This expert has been engaged as an expert on an IPR case, has been deposed multiple times, and has written many expert reports, rebuttals, and claim constructions.
In addition to leading technology development at a software development company and at this expert's start-up company, this expert worked with image signal processing (ISP) engineers at many of the industry's major players; in some cases the interactions were with multiple divisions such as professional camera, consumer camera, and automotive. The various applications this expert supported include professional and consumer video cameras, various digital consumer cameras, security and surveillance, and for automotive. This required management of multiple video streams starting at the image sensor, through color and sparse pixel processing in the sensor and the supporting image signal processor, to implementation of control signals and signal readout per custom and MIPI standards, adjustment of image capture settings, and handling of video and still image content throughout the various image capture systems. This expert is up to date on recent advancements targeted for multi-camera smartphones. This expert has a patent pending which leverages the additional layers within stacked image sensors for in-sensor image signal processing. This expert has authored 150 publications, and holds 41 patents in the general field of imaging sensors.
This expert is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science. This expert's experience is related to the broad area of digital transmission of real-time biophysical data and images (i.e., telemedicine). This expert has published multiple publications regarding the development of body sensors that gather physiological information and transmit same wirelessly to a mobile device and developed a demonstration system that captured real-time heartbeat data with a body sensor and transmitted that data across the internet to remote cardiologists. Working for a Military branch, this expert has consulted on research projects to develop its biotelemetrics capability. This expert helped develop a Transport Protocol which was primarily used for shipboard communication but was also used for medical image transmission (ultrasound images). This expert has served both Plaintiffs and Defendants as an expert witness in 28 cases, 26 of which were patent infringement cases, six of which went to trial.
