​Dr. Michael (Mickey) B. Frish Manager, Industrial Sensors  Dr. Frish has a broad, interdisciplinary background with specific strengths in research, development, commercialization and marketing of photonics instrumentation.  Early in his 35-year career with Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) he led the development and introduction of the first industrial quality gas analyzer and long-path leak detector products using Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy.  He subsequently led the evolution of these products into the Remote Methane Leak Detector (RMLD), an R&D 100 Awardee.  The RMLD is now a common tool used for natural gas leak detection with over 3000 units manufactured by Heath Consultants deployed worldwide.  His current work includes miniaturizing TDLAS sensors, reducing their costs, and utilizing them to quantify leak rates.  Dr. Frish has been awarded eight patents, and is the author or co-author of over 80 technical reports and publications.  He received BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell University.
