Gurtej S. Sandhu
Senior Fellow, IEEE Fellow Advanced Technology Development, Process R&D
Gurtej S. Sandhu is Senior Fellow and Director of Advanced Technology developments at Micron Technology, Inc. In his current role, he manages the Emerging Memory Materials and Advanced Technologies research and development at Micron. He received degree in electrical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi and a Ph.D. degree in physics at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in 1990. Dr. Sandhu then joined Micron Technology, where he has been in a number of engineering and management roles responsible for process technology development, pilot manufacturing and transfers to manufacturing. He has been actively involved with a broad range of process technologies, such as ion implantation, deposition technologies, plasma processing, CMP, Litho and front-end and back-end module integration technologies for IC processing. He has been associated with microelectronics technology for over 20 years and has pioneered a number of process technologies which are currently employed in mainstream semiconductor chip manufacturing. Moreover, he was involved with introduction of a number of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) based processes and innovative patterning techniques for memory chip technology. Dr. Sandhu has authored over 35 technical papers and several hundred issued U.S. patents. Dr. Sandhu is Fellow of IEEE.
