Prof. Glenn H. Chapman: SFU Eng. Science


Glenn H. Chapman received his BSc(Eng. Physics) degree, from Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 1972 and MSc (Eng. Physics) in 1975 for work on superconducting power transmission lines. He took his PhD. (Physics) degree from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario in 1982 with a thesis on pentenary semiconductor alloy systems. Between 1980 and 1990 he was a research staff member of M.I.T. Lincoln Laboratory and the principal researcher developing laser redundancy techniques for the Wafer Scale Integration laser Restructurable VLSI project which achieved 7 working Wafer Scale designs. After starting at SFU in 1990 he is currently a Full Professor in the School of Engineering Science at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. His research continues there in using redundancy technology to build Large Area / Wafer Scale Integration restructurable silicon systems. He is also working in the Laser micromachining of sensors and Biomedical devices, Micromachined sensors, Microfabrication. He has developed sensors for the Canadian Space Agency, and is currently working on Microfabrication techniques for both Space based and earth based fabrication. He teaching courses in microfabrication, laser application in Engineering, and embedded microprocessor systems. He is a Senior Fellow of the British Columbia Advanced System Institute, a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society, and chairman of the Electronics Group at SFU. In 1995 he was Program Chairman for the IEEE International Conference on Wafer Scale Integration, and General Chair for the 1996 Innovative Systems in Silicon conference. He has published 27 journal papers, 63 referred conference papers, 2 book chapters and has 20 patents applied for or pending.
