Session Chair: Arnaud Darmont, APHESA SPRL (Belgium)
11:50 AM – 12:30 PM

Dr. Dan McGrath is Sr. Principal II Semiconductor Engineer at BAE Systems. Dr. McGrath has worked for 38 years specializing in the device physics of silicon-based pixels, CCD and CIS, and in the integration of image-sensor process enhancements in the manufacturing flow. He chose his first job because it offered that “studying defects in image sensors means doing physics” and has kept this passion front-and-center in his work. He has pursued this work at Texas Instruments, Polaroid, Atmel, Eastman Kodak, Aptina, and BAE Systems and has worked with manufacturing facilities in France, Italy, Taiwan, and the (United States). His publications include the first megapixel CCD and the basis for dark current spectroscopy (DCS). He received his PhD from The Johns Hopkins University.

He co-founded the Institute of Microelectronics of Sevilla, under the umbrella of the Spanish Council Research (CSIC) and the University of Sevilla and started a research group on Analog and Mixed-Signal Circuits for Sensors and Communications. In 2001 he was the main promotor and co-founder of the start-up company AnaFocus Ltd. and served as CEO, on leave from the University, until June 2009, when the company reached maturity as a worldwide provider of smart CMOS imagers and vision systems-on-chip. He has authored 11 books, 36 additional book chapters, and some 150 journal articles in peer-review specialized publications. He was elected Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to the design of chaos-based communication chips and neuro-fuzzy chips. His research work has received some 6,954 citations; he has an h-index of 42 and an i10-index of 143.
