Over the past 15 years, my research group at Stanford has been involved in the design of new types of image sensors for applications involving high dynamic range and high speed imaging, bio-sensing, and multi-aperture imaging. I will give a brief introduction to image sensor technology and describe some of our recent work in this area.
Abbas El Gamal received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cairo University in 1972, the M.S. in Statistics and the PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford in 1977 and 1978, respectively. From 1978 to 1980 he was an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at USC. He has been on the Stanford faculty since 1981, where he is currently Professor and Director of the Information Systems Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering. He was on leave from Stanford from 1984 to 1988 first as Director of LSI Logic Research Lab, then as cofounder and Chief Scientist of Actel Corporation. In 1990 he co-founded Silicon Architects, which was later acquired by Synopsys. From 1997—2003, he was the principal investigator on the Stanford Programmable Digital Camera project. His research contributions has spanned several areas, including information theory, digital imaging, and integrated circuit design. He has authored or coauthored over 180 papers and 25 patents in these areas.
