Chief Executive Officer

Philip J. WyattPhilip J. Wyatt is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer responsible primarily for New Business Development, Research and Development, Intellectual Property, integration of the Company's technical centers including engineering, new product definition, and the Scientific Advisory Board.

He received his undergraduate education in liberal arts, physics and mathematics at the University of Chicago, and Christ's College, Cambridge. His graduate education was completed at the University of Illinois (M.S.) and Florida State University (Ph.D.).

He was nominated by the NAS as one of fifteen finalists for this country's first Scientist-Astronaut Selection Program. In 2003, he was named Graduate of Distinction by the College of Arts and Sciences at FSU. He is the American Physical Society's 2009 recipient of the Prize for Industrial Applications of Physics with the citation, "For pioneering developments in the physics of the inverse scattering problem: new applications of laser light scattering and the successful sustained commercialization of new related analytical methods and instrumentation."

He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Optical Society of America, and the American Physical Society. In addition, he was the Chair (2012-2013) of the American Physical Society's largest unit, the Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics.

The author of more than seventy publications, he has co-authored or contributed to eleven books. He has had over thirty domestic patents issued relating to laser light scattering and other technologies and over sixty derived foreign patents and new filings. He is a Registered Agent before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Dr. Wyatt's pioneering experience in the field of laser light scattering and particle size measurement includes:

  • Founding the first commercial instrument company to incorporate a laser and an on-board microprocessor
  • Developing the first commercial multi-angle laser light scattering instruments
  • Developing wide area warning systems against bioterrorist attacks (Wyatt-Lorenz)

Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in light scattering instrumentation and software for determining the absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution.

Wyatt's line of multi-angle static light scattering products couple to size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS), field-flow fractionation (FFF-MALS), and stop-flow composition-gradient systems (CG-MALS). Our dynamic light scattering (DLS) products operate in traditional cuvette as well as on-line and automated, high-throughput modes. We also offer unique instruments for electrophoretic light scattering (MP-PALS), differential refractometry, and differential viscosity.
