Educational Background

  1. PhD University of Queensland 1982 (Physical Chemistry)
  2. BSc(Hons) University of Queensland 1972

Short Biography Denis Sweatman received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from University of Queensland Australia in 1982 in the area of molecular spectroscopy. He subsequently developed a holographic interferometry pulsed laser system and an automated "Discontinuous Flow Analyser" in conjunction with instrumentation companies in Queensland. Since joining the School of Microelectronic Engineering at Griffith University he has researched nitrided gate oxides for MOS devices, silicon MEMS for optic waveguides and micro cochlear electrodes and micro biofluidics in collaboration with the CRC for Microtechnology. He currently is researching fiber and integrated optics projects for optical communication and sensing.
