PME Industry Seminar Series - Dr. David Hansen

Thursday, May 27, 2021 1:30pm - 2:30pm
Dr. David Hansen, Space Micro, Director of Radiation Effects and Hardening
Space Radiation: A Career on the Galactic Particle Defense Team

Space is a difficult place to do business. While charged particles can produce dazzling aurora effects for earth-bound observers, degradation due to the natural radiation environment can be a critical factor in determining the lifetime of electronic equipment used for space missions. This talk will provide a brief overview of the space radiation environment and talk about some of the ways to deal with these problems.

Dr. Hansen is a world-renowned expert in naturally occurring and manmade radiation effects found in defense, civil and commercial space programs, with a primary focus on radiation-induced degradation of semiconductor devices. During his 20+ year career, Dr. Hansen has published over 50 papers. His research covers radiation effects on a variety of technologies, including non-volatile memories, CMOS ASICs, SiGe, InP, and photonic devices, as well as the development of models to predict those effects on orbit.

Prior to joining Space Micro, Hansen worked at Data Device Corporation, Maxwell Technologies, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and The Boeing Company, where he was an Associate Technical Fellow.
