Optics Expert Witnesses
Optics, a branch of physics, studies the behavior and properties of light. An optics expert witness typically has an advanced degree and extensive experience and expertise in optical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, and/or materials engineering. Cahn Litigation Services has been approached by numerous clients to locate expert witnesses that can support matters involving optics technology. Most often the expert witness chosen is member of an industry organization such as the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), the Optical Society (OSA), and/or IEEE. An optics expert witness should have a deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the optics market dynamics, market growth, and competitive landscape.
Whether the case involves display optics, lasers, red dot sight, fiber optic cables, optical systems or photonics, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly, providing the right balance of expertise and testimony to support each unique project. An optics expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secrets dispute. It could be a patent infringement case in the District Court, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). In a litigation scenario, a technical expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as depositions, expert testimony, a prior art search, an expert report, forensic analysis, and related consulting activities. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement. An engineering expert witness needs to not only have technical expertise, an expert witness must possess the ability to explain technology to lay people. In addition, clients may seek an optic industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
