Photonics Expert Witnesses
What is a photonics expert witness?
Depending on the specific technology and product, a photonics expert witness typically has an advanced degree and a background and expertise in electrical engineering, optical engineering, physics, materials engineering, and/or mechanical engineering. The expert witness chosen may be a member of an industry organization such as The Optical Society and/or IEEE. A photonics expert witness should have a deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the photonic technology global market, market size, market growth, market share and competitive landscape.
What types of cases require a photonics expert witness?
A photonics 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).
What litigation support work might a photonics expert witness be expected to perform?
In a litigation scenario, a technical expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as deposition, expert testimony, prior art search, research and authoring expert reports, forensic engineering, and related consulting activities. In addition, clients may seek a photonics expert for pre-litigation consulting work. An engineering expert witness needs to not only have expertise but must also possess the ability to explain the underlying substantive technology to lay people, including judge and jury. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness experience is often a requirement.
