Our Team

Our team of professionals partners with you in every sense of the word. With experience in the laboratory and on the industrial shop floor, our expertise in making complex material measurements facilitates the solutions of your hardest problems. We are a resource for your analysts and engineers, happy to contribute to your success.

Drawing on 45 collective years of experience in building and specifying unique laser-based spectroscopic systems, and connected in every corner of the industry, Flash Photonics is well-positioned to work with you to source solutions for materials measurement. Dr. Steve Buckley worked for 10 years as an engineering faculty member at the University of Maryland and U.C. San Diego before leaving to co-found Photon Machines, Inc., which built LIBS and Laser Ablation systems as well as NIR tunable diode laser systems. Photon Machines' LIBS business was purchased by TSI in 2012. After a time working at Litton building laser systems for the DoD, Kevin Kaye joined Ocean Optics, where he worked in complex systems sales, including LIBS and Raman, for approximately 15 years. Kevin is known for his hands-on and solution-oriented approach that embodies the way we do business at Flash Photonics.
