David Cumming is the Professor of Electronic Systems at Glasgow University. He has B.Eng. (Glasgow, 1989) and Ph.D. (Cambridge, 1993) degrees and previously worked for STMicroelectronics and the University of Canterbury, NZ. He has held 1851 and EPSRC Research Fellowships. He is Head of Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering, a research unit of 25 academic staff, and leads the Microsystem Technology Group in the School of Engineering at GU. His research focuses on the design and implementation of highly integrated microsystems for applications including biomedical diagnostic sensing and imaging technologies. There is a considerable emphasis on VLSI design, photonics and micro/nanofabrication. He has published extensively in leading journals and conferences, giving invited talks world-wide. He is C.Eng, FIET and holds a Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award. He is Chair of the IEEE-EDS Scotland Chapter, an AE for IEEE Trans. BioCAS and is a member of the Scottish Science Advisory Council.？
CMOS underpins all modern microelectronics technology. Whilst dominant in computing and communications components and systems, CMOS has also been hugely influential in imaging technology, displacing other methods of making semiconductor focal plane array sensors such as CCD. In this paper I will describe new developments in CMOS sensing technology, including the CMOS proton sensing array that has growing influence in instrumentation for analytical chemistry and next generation gene sequencing. I will further discuss new sensor technologies based on CMOS for use in terahertz imaging, and the application of emerging technologies in metamaterials and surface plasmon resonance that are set to have a major impact on integrated sensing technologies. In so doing I will show how CMOS is now at the confluence of many strands of research, far outside its original application domain, and how microelectronics and nanoscale engineering has an impact on some of the most demanding technological applications of today.
