“A Proper Scientist”

I’ve always been a little careful when talking about science not to put myself forward too much as “a scientist” and more as “a student”. Partially, this is because I like to have an excuse when I do things wrong. However, I also felt that to be “a scientist” you have to have something to back up your claim. Since I’ve never had a paper published, that means I’ve always felt uncomfortable describing myself as “a scientist”.

Until now.

This week I got the news that a paper which I worked on was published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. While the paper wasn’t my idea, I was a big part of getting it produced and my expertise helped to refine it. I’m proud of that contribution, so I want to share that with everyone. But also, after seven years, I feel that I can finally call myself a scientist without having to add a caveat.

So if it floats your boat, have a read of the paper. It’s called;

“Measurements and Simulations of Low Dark Count Rate Single Photon Avalanche Diode Device in a Low Voltage 180-nm CMOS Image Sensor Technology”

The authors are;

Tomer Leitner, Amos Feiningstein, Renato Turchetta, Rebecca Coath, Steven Chick, Gil Visokolov, Vitali Savuskan, Michael Javitt, Lior Gal, Igor Brouk, Sharon Bar-Lev, and Yael Nemirovsky

And yes, one of them is me!

You can find the paper here.
