Martin Arnold

Associate, Patent Scientist
Cardiff, EIP Europe LLP

Martin is a specialist in optics and laser physics and joined EIP from another IP firm where he was involved in drafting patent applications for clients in a range of technical fields including optics, broadband light sources, augmented reality software, laser eye surgery, data management software, and food packaging. Martin also has experience at oral proceedings before the European Patent Office.

During his PhD in optics and laser physics Martin developed and adapted a new technique to synthesise the spatial and temporal intensity profile of ultra-fast laser beams for use in high harmonic generation experiments. Martin has presented his research at international conferences and contributed to the writing and editing of four research papers that were accepted in peer-reviewed journals.

Martin has a master’s degree in physics from the University of Surrey and a Post-graduate certificate in Intellectual Property Law.
