Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has recently inherited the mantle of best-known holographer. He has invented a way to make optical or electronic Fourier pattern recognition incredibly powerful while still retaining its shifty invariance properties. He and his coworkers have found two ways to accomplish zero-energy logic operations using optics. That invention allowed them to establish a broader field called ZEDs (Zero-Energy Devices). He also just invented a cheap, small, powerful point location method that works at any wavelength (x-rays to radio waves) at any field of view. Several of the fields above allow him to do wonderful biometrics, password enhancers, counterfeit detection, and the like. Expert invented fuzzy metrology and has now applied it to many fields with great success. His work in cognitive science, consciousness, attention, color, and so forth point to perceptive systems in technology.
