In this talk we will present the design and implementation of hybrid integrated sensors using integrated circuits. We will discuss the advantages and shortcomings of sensors built in silicon-based fabrication processes and examine, in detail, their integrated circuit topologies. We will conclude with examples of solutions that worked in the field which we domnetarted at KAUST.
Dr. Salama received his bachelors at Cairo university and his masters and doctorate degrees from the Electrical Engineering Department at Stanford University. His work on CMOS sensors for molecular detection was awarded the Stanford-Berkeley Innovators Challenge Award in biological sciences and was acquired by Lumina Inc in 2008. He was an assistant professor at RPI between 2005 and 2009. He is a Professor and founding program chair of the Electrical engineering department at King Abduallah University of Science and Technology. He is currently the director of the sensor initiative at KAUST, an eight university consortuim. He is the co-author of 200 papers and 14 patents on sensors.
