James C. Stephenson

PhD Candidate Electrical and Computer Engineering I began my work in micro fabrication in 1994 at the University of Utah as an undergraduate student.  We developed a thin-film integrated inductor/transformer process to be used in cell phone antenna impedance matching circuits.  Upon graduation I started working on magnetic memory contract for MicroMEM Inc. until December 2001. In February 2002 I returned to the University of Utah to pursue a PhD in Electrical Engineering working on a micro scale Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer.  Our system is intended for field use and is therefore portable and very low power.  We have developed a permanent magnet system capable of producing 2.3 Tesla magnetic field.  Additionally, we have improved upon existing micro-NMR probe technology by increasing the fill-factor to nearly 100%.
