T. Scott Rowe, P.E founded, and is currently Principal/Chief Consultant for Rowe Technical Design since March of 2005. Previously, he was Director of Engineering at WaveTec Vision Systems of Aliso Viejo, CA and Director of Optical Engineering for Fovioptics, Inc of Santa Clara CA. Earlier, he was Associate Director of Research and Development at Alcon Laboratories, Inc for 17 years. He has been involved in laser system development for the past 30 years in a variety of settings, including military/aerospace, commercial and for the past 20 years in ophthalmic medical devices. He holds 12 US patents, and has published and lectured in a wide variety of technical and clinical venues. He is a member of SPIE, OSSC and ARVO, and is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of California.

"Elegant Optical Solutions and Advice..." is my motto and work thesis. My practice reaches out to all who need to incorporate optical devices or design into their products, and to those who just want fact-based advice in the technology group. My clients range from some of the largest medical device companies to brand new start ups, to patent attorneys and stock market analysts needing a little insight into ophthalmic instrumentation and the use of optical and laser based technology. I offer instruction in Laser Safety through the Center for Applied Competitive Technologies based at Advanced Technology and Education Park, Tustin California. I also offer US representation and agency to those firms not currently doing business in the United States.
