He began his tenure with ESI as applications engineer, then became manager of Technical Services, and then product manager in the early 1970s. In the mid 1970s, he joined forces with Bell Telephone Labs and pioneered the laser redundancy process, which has dramatically increased production yields for manufacturers of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) devices. Today, virtually all semiconductor memory manufacturers rely on laser repair of redundant memory for production of memory chips.
