At NWES, we provide innovative companies the advice and insights they need to determine their path to further growth. We aid R&D and NPI efforts for new hardware and software products. We deliver the insight, benchmarks, and facts that allow our clients to make the right technology decisions.
Our PI has a broad range of experience and proven track record in a number of basic and applied research areas. This makes NWES the ideal choice for cutting edge research on topics in the physical sciences and engineering. We've worked with private industry and government on topics in the following areas:
Zachariah Peterson is the founder of Northwest Engineering Solutions. He conducted his Applied Physics Ph.D. research in ZnO random laser theory and stability and his M.Sc. Physics research in chemisorptive sensors for environmental monitoring at Portland State University. He also received his MBA (Leadership & Finance) from Adams State University. His research work post-academia includes topics in laser theory, electronics and optoelectronics, finance, and evolutionary computing.
Currently, Zachariah works with PCB design and manufacturing companies, as well as aerospace and defense electronics OEMs, bringing technological insights and foresight to their product development and digital marketing strategies. His goal is to help his clients remain competitive and show technical leadership in a quickly evolving technological landscape.
As microwave systems become more advanced and run at higher frequencies, proper design and optimization of interconnects has become more important for ensuring signal integrity. We focus on wideband design optimization techniques and emitter designs to support client projects and contribute to the research literature.
Today's mmWave products require noise-free power that seamlessly integrates with high-speed digital components and ensures thermal stability during operation. Our RF power system designs push the limits of power integrity and come in aggressive form factor while ensuring high power conversion efficiency.
Random systems like PCB substrates, nanoparticle agglomemrations, and semi-ordered cavities present very rich mathematics and physics, as well as potential practical applications based on wave propagation in linear or nonlinear random media. Exmaple applications include tunable ultra-narrowband emitters, high-Q nanolasers for photonics applications, and light sources for high-resolution speckle-free.
