Agilent is a measurement company, and its products are extremely diverse, their application areas including electronic and optical systems, chemical analysis and the life sciences. The objective of this talk is to give a glimpse of our research activities, using as examples topics including precision distance measurement, surface plasmon resonance, continuous phase tunable lasers, microarray diagnostics in medicine, R.F. tissue analysis, optical tweezers, programmable biophotonics, molecular robotics and optical modulation analysis. The author has been actively involved, or at least associated, with most of these. The talk will also give a flavor of what it is like to do research in industry.

Gerry Owen received his Ph.D. in electron optics from Cambridge in 1975, and has worked for Hewlett Packard or Agilent (spun off from HP in 2000) since 1979. He has spent almost his entire career as a practicing engineer.
