Opticalogic Advisors draw from 25+ years of experience in the optoelectronics industry.
Based in Silicon Valley, Opticalogic Advisors lie in the heart of the technology universe from which the world has grown to expect only the best and the brightest.
Julian Osinski, Ph.D., Principal Consultant, obtained his doctorate in semiconductor laser devices from the III-V semiconductor pioneer Dan Dapkus at the University of Southern California. From there he joined Spectra Diode Labs in San Jose, CA, where he developed high power semiconductor lasers for telecommunications, materials processing, data storage, and medical applications. During the roaring nineties, he moved into increasingly senior roles as he took on P&L and product line management responsibilities for a wide array of laser diode products. After the merger of SDL with JDS Uniphase, presently Lumentum, he left to join the tunable DWDM laser start-up Santur in 2002 as VP of Product, in Fremont, CA where he helped bring the company from zero revenue to profitability as well as dominant market leader.
Subsequent to the success of Santur, he began his consulting practice in 2007 and broadened his expertise into the related technology of LEDs as used in solid state lighting (SSL) and microLEDs for displays. He has since consulted for numerous start-ups as well as mature enterprises, and spent two and a half years as a VP at Pacific Light Technologies of Portland, OR, a manufacturer of high-efficiency quantum dot (QD) downconverters for displays and lighting, subsequently acquired by Osram, where he co-authored a key patent for multi-quantum-dot LED designs. He is currently also VP of Product Technology at iBeam Materials, Inc., of Santa Fe, NM, a company developing LEDs and microLEDs epitaxially grown on metal foil for flexible displays and other applications.
Julian has spoken at numerous conferences and continues to consult for the DOE, arpa-e, and enterprises in optoelectronics and photonics industries world-wide.
