Stephen E. Saddow is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and member of the Biomedical Engineering Faculty, College of Engineering, at the University of South Florida, Tampa, FL USA. He has been an active researcher in the field of SiC Technology since 1992, when he pioneered the use of 6H-SiC for high-power optical switching. Since this early work, he has specialized in the development of various SiC processing methods, most notably CVD of 3C-SiC on Si. In the last decade he has focused on the use of 3C-SiC for biomedical applications and has been developing SiC-based continuous glucose monitoring systems and neural implants. He has over 150 published papers, 3 books, several book chapters and has several patents, awarded or pending, on the use of SiC for biomedical applications. He has held several visiting researcher/professor positions in Italy, Germany, France, and more recently Brazil.
