"An innovation powerhouse for more than 50 years, Xerox has developed deep expertise in marking, materials, electronics, communications, software and services. Mestha joins other 50-plus patent holders representing a variety of disciplines. Among them are:"

  • Douglas Curry, a principal engineer at the Palo Alto Research Center, holds 51 patents. He recently invented a scanning microscope that identifies and locates cancer cells in blood. In the late 80's he co-developed the world's first quad-beam laser printer and the resulting hyperacuity printing patents form the basis of today's multibeam laser printers.
  • Karen Moffat is a polymer chemist who works at the Xerox Research Centre Canada. Moffat, who is an expert in the area of toner materials design and synthesis, holds 52 patents, many of which are related to toner materials including Xerox's proprietary emulsion aggregation toner. EA Toner is an energy-saving dry ink that produces sharp, vivid images.
  • Markus Silvestri is a solid state physicist who also trained in imaging and color science. Silvestri, who has 52 patents, specializes in photoreceptors, the material on which the latent image is formed prior to developing the printed image. His inventions contribute to the goal of making copiers and printers faster, with fewer print defects, and longer lasting photoreceptors. He works in Xerox's photoreceptor development area in Webster.
  • Bob Street, a physicist and senior research fellow at PARC, has been awarded 53 patents. Street's current work focuses on exploring high-volume printing technologies that could replace techniques traditionally used to create thin-film transistors, and using organic materials to create large-area transistor and sensor arrays.
Awesome! But, how far are they from the market? When and how they get monetized? Is it really about patents in an Obama defined world?

Or is about applications?
