Glen Fitzpatrick has worked at Micralyne for more than 30 years, and currently serves as the Chief Scientific Officer for the company. Glen joined Alberta Microelectronic Centre (AMC) in 1987, which subsequently became Micralyne in 1998. Glen focuses on MEMS innovations and bringing best practices to the solutions offered to Micralyne’s customers. His role is to advance Micralyne’s state-of-the-art and emerging trends in MEMS technology at the device, process, and equipment levels. He is also a principal internal consultant on device design and performance, and fabrication process development and troubleshooting.
Glen has spearheaded several breakthrough MEMS technologies, including developed processes for glass micromachining for microfluidics, and has contributed to a textbook on the topic. He also has designed and has patents awarded for high speed (10 MHz), electrically configurable linear array diffraction gratings, as well as for all-silicon ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) devices. His prior work includes designing a glass/silicon-based architecture for micro-mirror devices, which were used in telecom applications.
Glen has Bachelor of Science degrees in both Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
