|Optics||I have worked on several projects that have required the use of optics. From standard microscopy using a commercial unit to designing and building a custom microscope that has the capability of observing fluorescence and capturing Schlieren images of an ultrasonic field. I have also designed and implemented an two optical tweezing system using a diode laser and a Nd-Yag laser.|
|Electronics||I have experience with both analog and digital circuitry. Some projects I have worked on required the design and implementation of circuits to either gate, delay, or amplify signals.|
|Machining||I have machined tools, optical holders, and many adapters that function to standardize non standard parts. I have experience using both lathes and milling machines.|
|Lasers & Lighting||I have used high power lasers and low powered ones for many different projects. I am familiar with using high powered LEDs and the proper way to drive and cool them with either fans or thermoelectric cooling. I have also designed and built a spectrometer that used a high power mercury lamp source.|
|Chemistry||I am familiar with basic chemistry in regards to protein shelf life elongation, protein adhesion, antifade systems, ion exchange chromatography, and liposome preparation.|
|Design||Each experiment and even all products require some level of design. I have printed my own circuit boards, created many optical designs using Google Sketchup, and I have experience making animations.|
