Expert has recently inherited the mantle of best-known holographer. Expert has invented a way to make optical or electronic Fourier pattern recognition incredibly powerful while still retaining its shifty invariance properties. Expert 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). Expert 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.

Expert invented the holographic diffuser and consulted with Physical Optics Corporation to make it mass producibleHe worked with Karmanos Cancer Institute to coinvent the best ultrasonic breast examination system everHe worked with Innovative American Technologies to help them obtain the preeminent position in gamma ray sensors that discriminate among sourcesWith wavefront technologies, Expert secured their patent on high efficiency embossed holograms

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Nashville, Tennessee - Chattanooga, Tennessee - Clarksville, Tennessee - Murfreesboro, Tennessee - Huntsville, Alabama - Decatur, Alabama
