Talk 2
Title:CMOS Sensor technology for diagnostics, genomics and metabolomics
Speaker:Prof. David Cumming,School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, UK.
Chair:Prof. Qin Chen
Date:4th Jul 2017,9:30am(Tue)

Prof. David Cumming, Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (FRSE), Fellow of IEEE, is presently the Head of the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow with 120 academic staff and a turnover of £37m. He is an electronics engineer focused on VLSI design and microsystem technology for sensors and imaging applications. He has published 300 papers, held numerous grants and supervised over 20 PhD students. He has led several large grants since 2000 including SHEFC RDG “IDEAS” (a £1.3m collaboration with Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Strathclyde Universities), coordinating “MINT” (a £1.6m EU FP5 international collaboration), the EPSRC S&I award (£4.2m with SFC co-funding to set up the Electronic Systems Design Centre at GU of which he was the founding director) and most recently the £3.4m EPSRC PG, Multicorder. His research has led to one university spin-out (Mode DX) and sensor technology that led to the Ion Torrent gene sequencing system, now owned by Thermo Fisher. DC has previously served on the Scottish Government Science Advisory Council and is presently a member of the Scottish Funding Council’s Research and Knowledge Exchange Committee.

Abstract for Talk 1(3rd Jul 2017,9:30am)
Title:Semiconductor, meta- and nano-photonics for imaging applications
Abstract:Metamaterials are synthetic optical materials that interact with electromagnetic radiation to produce surprising, and as it turns out, useful phenomena.  In recent years there has been considerable excitement in metamaterials research around negative refractive index for super resolution imaging and so-called invisibility cloaking.  We have taken advantage of these properties to make thin film structures for filters and absorbers and applied these to image forming technologies in the visible, infrared and terahertz spectral bands.  Present research is leading towards a multispectral imaging focal plane array on a mix of semiconductor technologies. In the second part of my talk I will discuss recent innovations in hybrid semiconductor technologies for imaging in the infrared and terahertz domains, in particular.  I will discuss post-processing of standard CMOS technology for novel kinds of image sensor, and our work on III-V technologies. This will include a discussion of how we integrate GaAs transistor technology with InSb photodiode technology to make active image sensor arrays for the mid-IR.

Abstract for Talk 2(4th Jul 2017,9:30am)
Title:CMOS Sensor technology for diagnostics, genomics and metabolomics
Abstract:Microelectronics technology, and especially CMOS, has revolutionised communications, information and computing technologies over the last 30 years. It has also become clear that the same technology can make excellent image sensors, so changing the face of modern photography.  In this talk I will discuss further extensions to the capability and application of CMOS technology, achieved by a combination of new chips design, and heterogeneous integration with optical and biochemical technologies. The talk will be illustrated with examples optical sensors and ion sensitive field effect transistors for using applications such as medical diagnostics, chemical monitoring, DNA sequencing, and biochemical assay. These examples will illustrate future directions for the ever expanding range of capabilities of CMOS in the years ahead.
