Dr. Michael C. Hamilton

Dr. Hamilton obtained his B.S.E.E. from Auburn University in 2000 and M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. from The University of Michigan in 2003 and 2005, respectively. His graduate work focused on advanced and alternative microelectronic devices, namely organic semiconductor-based transistors and sensors. From 2006 to 2010, he was at MIT-Lincoln Laboratory (Lexington, MA). While at Lincoln Laboratory, Dr. Hamilton led instrument-level and system-level projects on the next generation of geostationary imaging for weather satellite systems, testing and modeling of highly-scaled and environmentally-optimized CMOS devices subjected to extreme environmental conditions, and modeling, design, fabrication and test of advanced technologies for high-frequency RF sample-hold and analog-digital conversion circuits based on Fully-Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator (FD-SOI) transistors and CCD structures. Dr. Hamilton joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Auburn University in 2010, and has been an Associate Professor since 2015. He is the Director of the Alabama Micro/Nano Science and Technology Center (AMNSTC). His current interests and areas of work include: physics and applications of organic, molecular and bio-inspired electronic and optoelectronic devices, nanotechnology for electronic and photonic devices, active and passive thin-film devices, cryogenic (>mK) and radiation effects in semiconductor devices, and advanced packaging and integration technologies for extreme environments (including superconducting technologies). He is also currently serving on the IEEE MTT-S Education Committee, he is the MTT-S webinar producer/moderator and he is on the MTT-18 Microwave Superconductivity Technical Committee.
