Mr. Grot joined Spectral Sciences, Inc. in February 2001, subsequent to employment with Osram Sylvania, Inc. in Danvers, MA. His graduate research work primarily concentrated on tunneling behavior of electrons through super-fluid helium. He also worked on development of innovative techniques of teaching physics to students with little scientific background. His work at Sylvania was research and development of the ICETRON fluorescent system which utilizes an electrodeless, closed-path, vessel and high-frequency, electromagnetic induction. He also specialized in the design, construction, and automation of spectroradiometric/ electronic test and measurement systems and high-vacuum, precision-pressure-regulated, exhaust systems unique to the company and needed for the further development of inductively coupled fluorescent systems. His scholastic background and research interests include high-temperature superconductivity, electromagnetic radiation, image and signal processing, and high-performance computing.
