A nanoparticle expert witness must have a deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the global market, market size, market growth, market dynamics, market players and market share, and competitive landscape. Whether the technology involves polymeric nanoparticles, metal nanoparticles, or a cerium oxide nanoparticle, 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 project.
A nanoparticle is a particle of matter that is between 1 and 100 nanometres (nm) in diameter. Nanoparticles, also known as fine particles, when added to a solid or liquid can substantially change the mechanical properties. Nanoparticles are studied in many science fields including chemistry, physics, geology and biology. A nanoparticle is key component in many products such as paints, plastics, metals, ceramics and protective coatings, and nanoscale particles are common in biomedical applications such as drug delivery or imaging contrast agents.
An expert witness in the field of nanotechnology will typically provide his or her expertise in intellectual property matters. It could be a patent infringement case, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB (where the only expert testimony is through a deposition), a trade secret dispute, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). Litigation support by a nanoparticle subject matter expert could include a detailed analysis, research report, expert opinion, and trial testimony. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work. Cahn Litigation Services has completed numerous searches for an expert witness in the nanotechnology space, providing candidates for each case to the specifications provided by the attorney in charge.
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.
The below expert witness bios represent a small fraction of those Nanoparticle experts known by Cahn Litigation Services. These bios are provided to give attorneys a sense of the Nanoparticle landscape.
This expert is a full professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science. This expert has had significant experience in patent litigation matters, having given trial testimony over forty times. This expert is an expert in thin film adhesion and has a recent patent in this area. This expert has expertise in (1) applied mechanics: deformation and stress/strain behavior of particulate composites and how it is affected by particle volume fraction, thermal stresses and geometrical deformation; (2) thin films and multilayers and interface mechanics, including adhesion; (3) scanning electron microscopy to characterize products with respect to particle geometry and volume fraction; (3) polymer manufacturing and thin film manufacturing with focus on adhesion science; (4) tribology: how the multilayers are deformed both elastically and plastically, including particle uprooting at their interfaces with polymer matrix due to rubbing against recording surfaces, friction forces especially with nanoparticle surfaces; (5) Nanomechanics: role of small particle size in controlling the mechanical properties.
