Past consulting has been in fields of study generally related to my own research interest, including such topics as:

  • Hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin-film transistors (TFT) technology
  • Active-matrix liquid crystal displays technology (AM-LCDs)
  • A-Si:H TFT processing, properties and electrical characterization methods
  • Thin-film plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technology
  • AM-LCD pixel electrode circuits and related driving schemes
  • Electrical instability of a-Si:H TFTs
  • Physics of a-Si:H TFTs
  • Electrostatic discharge protection (ESD) circuits for AM-LCDs
  • Next generation flat panel display technologies

Dr. Kanicki has also expertise in the following:

  • Patent infringement technology consulting
  • Expert witness and testimony expertise
  • Litigation support consultant

He can provide research and testimonials to assist attorneys and their clients involved in patent infringement litigations. Consulting arrangements are typically made after an initial discussion to determine whether such an arrangement is suitable for both parties. A non-disclosure agreement may be signed at any point. Once an agreement is made, charges are typically on a per-hour or per-day basis including associated expenses. Past projects have been with number of multinational organizations both large and small.

Jerzy Kanicki received the Ph. D. degree in Sciences (D. Sc.) from the Free University of Brussels (Universite Libre de Bruxeles, ULB), Brussels, Belgium, in 1982. His dissertation research work involved the “Optical, electrical, and photovoltaic properties of undoped and doped trans-polyacetylene”. He subsequently joined the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, as a research staff member (RSM) working on hydrogenated amorphous silicon devices for the photovoltaic and flat panel display applications. In 1994 he moved from IBM Research Division to the University of Michigan as a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). From 2002 to 2003, he spent a sabbatical year at the Center for Polymer and Organic Solids (Physics Department), University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) conducting research in the area of organic electronics in collaboration with Prof. A. Heeger (winner of 2000 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “Discovery and Development of Conducting Polymers”). He is the author and co-author of over 250 publications in journals and conference proceedings. He has edited two books and three conference proceedings. He is coauthor of the book on “High-Fidelity Medical Imaging Displays” (Bellingham, Washington: SPIE Press, 2004). Dr. Kanicki presented numerous invited talks at national and international meetings in the area of the organic and inorganic semiconductor devices. He received several (1989, 1990 and 1993) IBM External Honors Prizes. He served as organizing chairman and/or co-chairman of the “Amorphous Insulating Thin Films” Symposia (1992, Boston, U.S.; 1994, Strasbourg, France; 1995, Osaka, Japan), and of 1988 Int. Conf. on “Hydrogenated Amorphous Silicon Devices and Technology” ( Yorktown Heights, N.Y., U.S.). Dr. Kanicki was / is program committee member of several national and international conferences. He is an active member of IEEE, SID, ACS, and APS.
