Arokia Nathan

Dr. Arokia Nathan is currently the Chief Technical Officer of Cambridge Touch Technologies, a company spun out of the University of Cambridge developing advanced interactive technologies. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Alberta. Following post-doctoral years at LSI Logic Corp., USA, and ETH Zurich, Switzerland, he joined the University of Waterloo, Canada, where he held the DALSA/NSERC Industrial Research Chair in sensor technology and subsequently the Canada Research Chair in nano-scale flexible circuits. He was a recipient of the 2001 NSERC E.W.R. Steacie Fellowship. In 2006, he moved to the U.K. to take up the Sumitomo Chair of Nanotechnology at the London Centre for Nanotechnology, University College London, and subsequently held the Chair of Photonic Systems and Displays in the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University, where he led a multi-disciplinary research group working on the heterogeneous integration of materials and processes, sensors, energy harvesting and storage devices pertinent to wearable technologies. He received the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award and recently the BOE Distinguished Contribution Award for TFT Compact Modeling and Circuit Design. He has held Visiting Professor appointments at the Physical Electronics Laboratory, ETH Zürich and the Engineering Department, Cambridge University, UK. He has published over 600 papers in the field of sensor technology, CAD, thin film transistor electronics, and is a co-author of four books. He has over 100 patents filed/awarded and has founded/co-founded four spin-off companies. He serves on technical committees and editorial boards in various capacities.

Dr. Nathan is a Chartered Engineer (UK), Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (UK), Fellow of IEEE (USA), and an IEEE/EDS Distinguished Lecture.

Printed Transistors Pushed To New Operational Limits

Researchers from the University of Cambridge successfully developed a fully printed transistor technology with high gain, low power, low noise, and mechanical bendability that unlocks new possibilities in wearable and implantable technology. The printed transistor readily lends itself to analog […]
