Paul Lum worked at Hewlett Packard/HP Labs/Agilent Labs for close to 30 years in R&D and manufacturing in integrated circuits and instrumentation (beginning when wafers were 2 inches in diameter and CMOS was just a whisper). He is associated with the development of many different IC processes, device scaling, and yield analysis. He has conducted research on optical integrated circuits on planar substrates, developed medical acoustics sensors and instrumentation, high frequency acoustics, and point-of-care measurement devices and systems. His latest research is in skin lancing devices as well as the physiomechanical properties of skin. He worked with HP/Agilent Labs spin-off Pelikan Technologies conducting research and development of blood sample capture and transport for integrated blood diabetes measurement systems, also known as Diabetic one-stop-shop.
