Ethan’s practice focuses on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications in the fields of electrical and mechanical engineering, physics, and optics.
Ethan was previously in-house counsel at a high performance laser company where he developed and managed an intellectual property portfolio directed to the company’s optical technologies. He has written and prosecuted many optics-related patents, including applications covering optical fibers, laser diodes, fiber lasers, nonlinear frequency conversion, line beam systems, and laser processing methods.
