Dr. Mark F. Witinski completed his doctorate in chemical physics at Cornell University in 2006, where his work centered on using molecular beams and laser spectroscopy to examine the dynamics of molecular collisions. He then spent over five years as a Research Associate in the laboratory of Prof. Jim Anderson at Harvard. There, he was focused on innovative approaches to Mid-IR spectroscopy using Quantum Cascade Lasers. Dr. Witinski served as co-founder and President of Eos Photonics prior to the merger to form Pendar Technologies. At Pendar, he focuses primarily on applications development, business to business strategic partnerships, and Government sales. He is a Fulbright Scholar and has authored numerous publications in fields such as chemical physics, trace detection, and laser development.
