Microelectronics Research Examples and Outcomes

Seminar Date(s)
Seminar Location
Jacobs Hall, Room 2504, Jacobs School of Engineering, 9500 Gilman Dr, La Jolla, San Diego, California 92093
Seminar Speaker
Yasar Gurbuz
Sabanci University

In this talk, I will talk on recent project outcomes of my research group, Sabanci University -Microelectronics Research Group. The project results will include a hand-held biomedical device module that is capable of detection and quantification of cancer and cardiovascular disease markers from human blood samples for point-of-care applications, SiGe-based Multi-Quantum Well Bolometer Array Structures with highest temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR-%5.5), along with the new generation Digital Readout Integrated Circuits-DROICs, for low-cost IR camera applications, and highly efficient nano-Metal-Insulator-Metal (MIM) Photovoltaic diode arrays (%32) for visible and near-IR applications. The talk will also include some research examples/results of SiGe BiCMOS-technology based RF Front-End Circuits and Systems, including 6-bit resolution X-Band (8-12 GHz) Transceiver, 5G (28 GHz) Full-Dublex Transceiver, and W- and D-Band (94 and 140 GHz) Receivers for Dicke Radiometer applications with less than 0.5 K NETD.
