Paul Banks Paul Banks is founder and CEO of TetraVue, working to commercialize advance 3D imaging technologies for industrial applications. High-resolution 3D video and imagery will play an important role to break down the barrier between the physical world and the digital world, revolutionizing metrology and imagery. Paul Banks received a Ph. D. in Applied Physics from the University of California, Davis, and has worked for twenty years in developing practical applications of laser and optical technology. This includes work at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in ultrafast lasers and their applications to industrial materials processing. Following LLNL, he was co-founder of a new Photonics Division at General Atomics and led the laser R&D group in efforts in ultrafast to directed energy and airborne laser systems. Dr. Banks has received 2 R&D 100 awards for work in laser materials processing. He has over 20 publications and 10 patents in laser and electro-optic technology, including 3D capture. He served on the advisory board of the SPAR 3D Imaging Conference and serves on the executive subcommittee of the ASTM E57 3D Imaging Standards Committee. Paul has been on a life long pursuit of perfectly popping corn with a laser.
