I am co-inventor on a laser patent, and sole inventor on another. The most recent is from my work as Product Line Manager (PLM) at JDS Uniphase in Ottawa. The Wavelength Blocker is a device that is used in high speed fiber optic communication systems to selectively remove wavelengths from a multichannel fiber. My first patent was my invention of a device to monitor the optical window of a high powered Excimer Laser allowing determination of output power degradation in an automated system.
