Expert has in-depth expertise of moly-manganese metallization on alumina, zirconia, mullite, sapphire, and others. His metallization knowledge includes Mo/Mn, W/Ti, and active alloy brazing, and has extensive experience with various soldering and brazing methods. His educational background covers the theory of the bonding mechanism of metal to ceramic or glass. Expert notes that metallization on glass is a rather low-temperature process. He has in-depth experience in the metallization at both low-temperatures and refractory high-temperatures, and has years of theoretical study on the subject.

Expert has extensive experience in glass-to-metal seals, and has conducted research on the subject. His background includes glass-ceramic process, routine glass hermetic seals, decarburization, optimized oxidation of metal for glass wetting, and sealing process atmospheres adjustments. He has extensive experience with glass bonding: match seals, compression seals, as well as chemical/diffusion bonding. He has years of theoretical study on the subject, as well.

Expert worked on the development of silicon-on-sapphire transducers (SOSTs) for pressure transducer application and the works' production transfer. His expertise also includes design, R&D, and prototypes.
