Paul Sunal

Senior MEMS Engineer

MEMS and Nanotechnology Exchange / CNRI

Dr. Paul Sunal is an engineering professional in charge of foundry operations and thin-film technologies at the MNX. Dr. Sunal graduated with his bachelor\'s degree from the University of Florida in Materials Science and Engineering with a specialty in ceramic engineering. Following his bachelor\'s degree, he completed a Master of Science degree program in Engineering Science and Mechanics at the Pennsylvania State University. Employed as a process engineer for the MEMS and Nanotechnology Exchange in the Solid State Electronics Laboratory at the University of Michigan, he worked for three years before returning to the Pennsylvania State University to complete his Ph.D., also in Engineering Science and Mechanics.

During his time at Penn State, Dr. Sunal investigated various aspects of engineered thin film morphologies, specifically, micro- and nanostructured thin films such as sculptured thin films (STFs) and metal/nitride nanocomposites. His work focused on determining the level of control over the resulting structure at all length scales (macro-, micro-, nanoscale) and methods of thin film characterization. Part of his time at Penn State was spent fabricating Pd hydrogen gas sensors upon permeable, heated MEMS platforms that allowed regeneration of the sensors, thereby increasing their lifetimes and sensitivity. Dr. Sunal is responsible for providing engineering and fabrication expertise to MNX customers.
