Welcome to PBJacquemin .com
PhD Mechanical Engineering

I can provide design solutions in optics, photonics, acoustics, mechanisms, and image processing. My applied technology experience includes lasers, optical communications, optical target tracking, pointing control mechanisms, and laser holography instruments for medical applications. My diverse multi-discipline background includes 15 years in the aerospace industry developing high technology optical-acoustical-mechanical control systems. My experience in mechanical engineering and applied physics can be used to support your design upgrades and reduce your development costs.

My systematic approach to integrated hardware, instrumentation, analytical software and algorithm development will optimize the progress of your product from conceptual phase to production prototype. High performance opto-mechanical products can give you the competitive advantage.

Please contact me to discuss how I can support your research goals and product development requirements
