Nov. 8: ECE Seminar – Dr. Matthew Johnston

Boise State logo

10:30 a.m. ENGR, room 103. Dr. Matthew Johnston of Oregon State University, will be the speaker for the seminar “Silicon Integrated Circuit, Sensor, and System Approaches for Lab-on-CMOS Applications”. Johnston received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, and an M.S. and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Columbia University. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University, where his Sensors and Integrated Microelectronics Laboratory leverages custom CMOS IC design and post-fabrication to build miniaturized sensor systems.

The Lab-on-CMOS research community leverages the power and economies of scale of modern silicon integrated circuits, built up over the previous fifty years for high-performance computation and imaging, for low-cost chemical and biological sensing applications. The integration of new materials, sensing modalities, and intelligent computation in CMOS-based sensor platforms enables a broad range of miniaturized diagnostic, therapeutic, and continuous monitoring systems. In this talk, Dr. Johnston will present a survey of ongoing research in his lab focused on the chip-level development and system-level integration of IC-based sensors for physical, chemical, and biological sensing. This includes CMOS-integrated single-photon detectors, high dynamic range visible light sensing, and applications in radiation sensing and biological monitoring. Dr. Johnston will also describe his approach for the planar integration of IC-based sensors with microfluidic sample delivery using scalable, manufacturable processes.
