Using SWNT to enhance sensing applications

May 15, 2009

ECE Assistant Professor Mehmet Dokmeci has developed a method of using Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT) on complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) circuitry that will lead to the creation of new sensor systems. The article can be viewed here.

Mehmet R. Dokmeci received his B.S. (with distinction) and M.S. degrees from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, all in Electrical Engineering. His doctoral dissertation was titled “Hermetic Glass-Silicon Micropackages and Feedthroughs for Neural Prostheses”. Following graduation, he has worked for a MEMS foundry for 4 years developing microelectromechanical systems based products for the telecommunications and life sciences industries. He is the author or coauthor of 56 journal articles, 98 conference publications, 4 book chapters and has 4 patents. He is interested in the field of micro and nanoscale sensors and devices and related applications to biomedical devices, tissue engineering and implantable biosensors. Dr. Dokmeci is a member of the IEEE, AAAS, MRS, and ACS.
