Microtechnics was incorporated in 2001 by Dr Gary Gaugler. Irrespective of his Electrical Engineering and Computer Science background, education, experience and microcircuit design and development for commercial and defense applications, he is thoroughly engaged in digital photography. He has been doing medical and scientific stock photography work using optical and scanning electron microscopes for many years, as well as art, portraits and landscape photographs. Many of his stock photos are still licensed today by his agencies to customers around the world and are used in periodicals, journals and text books.
Lucis products were discontinued by Image Content in 2015, and ceased all operations at that time. As an ardent fan and user of Lucis products, Dr Gaugler has engaged in bringing the Lucis products back to market.
