As the “bridge” between pure physics and engineering, applied physics strives to marry the fundamental principles of physical science with the determination and focus that is characteristic of successful technologies. Such efforts have led to the development of particle accelerators, lasers, superconducting quantum-interference devices (SQUIDs), spectrophotometers, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), thermoelectric refrigeration, photovoltaic cells (solar panels), non-invasive aesthetic techniques, and a slew of other utilitarian-based innovation that have had enormous impact on society.
The domain of expertise and degree of knowledge of a patent attorney should play a significant role in the selection process for assigning a case to a patent professional for patent drafting and developing an IP strategy.
