    Xerox had 584 patents in 2007
    (probably more spying software)
    Patent Powerhouse: Xerox Boasts 101 Inventors with 50 or More Patents
    N.YLalit K. Mestha’s 50th U.S. utility patent, awarded just days after
    his 50th birthday last month, is not only a milestone for him but also
    a milestone for Xerox Corporation . Mestha is the 101st Xerox inventor
    who has received 50 or more patents, showcasing a culture of innovation
    that is both broad and deep. These inventors have produced a wealth of
    innovations that distinguish Xerox products and services and have
    helped create the modern office and the digital printing
    industry.Mestha is among hundreds of Xerox inventors with specialties
    ranging from electrical engineering and polymer chemistry to solid
    state physics and computer science. Their creativity has resulted in
    more than 100 new products and services in the past three years and the
    broadest portfolio of digital document systems and services in the
    industry.“Our selection last year as the recipient of the National
    Medal of Technology, the highest technology honor in the United States,
    officially recognized what I know: Xerox has some of the world’s best
    minds in our research and technology organizations. Their innovations
    are creating and changing industries,” said Sophie V. Vandebroek,
    president of the Xerox Innovation Group and the company’s chief
    technology officer. “In every corner of our company, scientists and
    engineers are creating the future today, and conceiving of products and
    services that are delighting our customers.”Mestha, a principal
    scientist in the Xerox Innovation Group, was awarded eight patents in
    2007 and is one of eight Xerox inventors who crossed the 50-patent
    threshold last year. His rich portfolio of patents, grounded in the
    application of modern control theory and centering on sensing and
    control of the printing process, was instrumental in developing process
    controls in Xerox’s flagship iGen3™ Digital Production Press as well as
    high-speed spectral sensing and consistent color innovations in other
    Xerox products.His 50th U.S. patent, No. 7,307,720 “Method for
    corrected spectrophotometer output for measurements on multiple
    substrates,” addresses the question of how to measure color accurately
    on a variety of substrates when using small, fast, and inexpensive
    in-line spectrophotometers. The technology measures the color in prints
    to help deliver consistent color print after print.

    innovation powerhouse for more than 50 years, Xerox has developed deep
    expertise in marking, materials, electronics, communications, software
    and services. Mestha joins other 50-plus patent holders representing a
    variety of disciplines. Among them are:

       * Douglas Curry, a
    principal engineer at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), holds 51
    patents. He recently invented a scanning microscope that identifies and
    locates cancer cells in blood. In the late 80′s he co-developed the
    world’s first quad-beam laser printer and the resulting hyperacuity
    printing patents form the basis of today’s multibeam laser printers.
    * Karen Moffat is a polymer chemist who works at the Xerox Research
    Centre Canada. Moffat, who is an expert in the area of toner materials
    design and synthesis, holds 52 patents, many of which are related to
    toner materials including Xerox’s proprietary Emulsion Aggregation
    Toner. EA Toner is an energy-saving dry ink that produces sharp, vivid
        * Markus Silvestri is a solid state physicist who also
    trained in imaging and color science. Silvestri, who has 52 patents,
    specializes in photoreceptors, the material on which the latent image
    is formed prior to developing the printed image. His inventions
    contribute to the goal of making copiers and printers faster, with
    fewer print defects, and longer lasting photoreceptors. He works in
    Xerox’s photoreceptor development area in Webster.
        * Bob Street,
    a physicist and senior research fellow at PARC, has been awarded 53
    patents. Street’s current work focuses on exploring high-volume
    printing technologies that could replace techniques traditionally used
    to create thin-film transistors, and using organic materials to create
    large-area transistor and sensor arrays.

    Xerox’s investment in
    innovation generates a steady stream of advanced technology. More than
    two-thirds of its equipment revenue is from products and services
    launched in the past two years alone, reflecting the company’s ability
    to generate a strong return on its R&D. Xerox holds more than 8,000
    active patents and invests about 6 percent of its revenue in research,
    development and engineering activities.
