2011 SENSORS COUNCIL AWARDS

The 2011 Technical Achievement Award
Name of the winner Credits
Thomas W. Kenny, Stanford University T Kenny For pioneering contributions to MEMS-based timing systems, which enabled many commercial products, such as HP printers, Samsung displays, Apple laptops, TIVO DVRs, and hundreds of other products, and which are expected to displace quartz-based timing products in most consumer applications.
The 2011 Meritorious Service Award
Name of the winner Credits
Thomas F. Wiener wiener For contributions to the founding of the IEEE Sensors Council and exemplary service in a variety of roles, including president, secretary, and secretary-treasurer.
The 2011 Early Career GOLD Award
Name of the winner Credits
Dr. Bhaskar Choubey, University of Glasgow B Choubey For development of novel image sensors and novel measurement techniques for coupled micro/nano mass sensors, and for improving the sensory instrumentation for magnetic resonance imaging to study the human visual sensor, thereby exemplifying the multi-faceted nature of image sensors and their applications.

Paper: “A Study on Breath Acetone in Diabetic Patients Using a Cavity Ringdown Breath Analyzer: Exploring Correlations of Breath Acetone With Blood Glucose and Glycohemoglobin A1C“, IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL, VOL. 10, NO. 1, Jan. 2010. The paper reports a first pilot-scale breath acetone analyzer based on the cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) technique to conduct breath tests. It had shown quantitative information on acetone concentration in diabetic breath. Relations between breath acetone and Blood glucose have shown that a linear correlation between the mean group acetone and the mean group BG level does exist.
