His current research interests are nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, nanotechnology, data analytics and their emerging applications to health and environmental sciences. Dr. Deen’s research record includes more than 560 peer-reviewed articles (about 20% are invited and with an h-index of 57), two textbooks on “Silicon Photonics- Fundamentals and Devices” and” Fiber Optic Communications: Fundamentals and Applications”, 12 awarded patents of which 6 were extensively used in industry, and 18 best paper/poster/presentation awards. Over his career, he has won more than fifty-five awards and honors.
As an undergraduate student at the University of Guyana, Dr. Deen was the top ranked mathematics and physics student and the second ranked student at the university, winning the Chancellor’s gold medal and the Irving Adler prize. As a graduate student, he was a Fulbright-Laspau Scholar and an American Vacuum Society Scholar. He is a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Electron Device Society for more than a decade. His awards and honors include the Callinan Award as well as the Electronics and Photonics Award from the Electrochemical Society; a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation; the Eadie Medal from the Royal Society of Canada; McNaughton Gold Medal (highest award for engineers), the Fessenden Medal and the Ham Education Medal, all from IEEE Canada. In addition, he was awarded the four honorary doctorate degrees in recognition of his exceptional research and scholarly accomplishments, professionalism and service. Dr. Deen has also been elected Fellow status in ten national academies and professional societies including The Royal Society of Canada - The Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences (the highest honor for academics, scholars and artists in Canada), IEEE, APS (American Physical Society) and ECS (Electrochemical Society). He served as the elected President of the Academy of Science, The Royal Society of Canada in 2015-2017 and is now serving as the Past President.
讲座摘要:A major grand challenge in engineering is in the healthcare field for screening, diagnostics and monitoring. Therefore, in this presentation, I will discuss our on‐going bioimaging research program. First, I will discuss our work on biomedical imaging modalities such as time‐of‐flight (ToF) positron emission tomography (PET) and fluorescence‐lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) for molecular and cellular imaging in medical diagnostics and screening. For more accurate diagnoses we require high precision, high temporal resolution and high contrast medical images, so state‐of‐the‐art integrated electronics with high sensitivity, high counting rates and fine time resolution are needed. To meet these requirements, single photon detectors designed in standard, low-cost, deep sub‐micron silicon technologies are employed. This approach allows us to take advantage of the inherent speed and increased integration density afforded by the state‐of‐the‐art silicon processes. I will describe the main components of high‐performance biomedical imaging systems that combine integrated circuits with high‐speed single photon detectors. The key design goals of high‐resolution, high throughput, good linearity, wide measurement range, small size and low power, as well as results from extensive testing will be provided and discussed.
