Jeff Chinn's Biography

Jeff Chinn, Chief Technical Officer, Integrated Surface Technologies

Jeff Chinn is the Chief Technical Officer and founder of Integrated Surface Technologies (IST) which is currently in its 11th year of operation. Jeff has been associated in the MEMS and nano-community for vapor surface engineering for nearly 20 years. Prior to IST, Jeff was the founder of another high-tech VC funded startup - Applied MicroStructures where he created the Molecular Vapor Deposition (MVD) technology. In Jeff’s professional career, he held positions of General Manager of the MEMS Business Group, Director of Technology in Corporate Marketing and Director of Technology in the Silicon Etch Division all at Applied Materials. Jeff has also worked in semiconductor manufacturing with IDT, Siliconix (now Vishay), Cypress Semiconductor, and Fairchild Camera. Jeff holds a B.S. from Tufts University and an M.S. & Ph.D. from Cornell University all in the field of Electrical Engineering. Jeff has co-authored over 77 issued US Patents.

Surface engineering techniques through to use of specialized molecular chemistries can be used to develop or mitigate a wide range of functional properties, including physical, chemical, fluid flow, electrical, and corrosion-resistant properties. Almost all types of materials including metals, semiconductors, ceramics, polymers, and composites can be coated with molecular films to alter their surface states. Common surface engineered properties of interest often include: control of surface energies (hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, anti-fouling), chemical grafting (functional groups –NH2, -OH, -COOH, -SH2, etc.), molecular level cleaning, surface activation, adhesion promotions (chemical activation for bonding, immobilizing DNA) and preservation (corrosion inhibitors, moisture barriers). These nano-scaled films can be engineered into many unique bio-compatible coatings. In this talk, we will review the basics of molecular coatings that are commonly used and a technique to applied and to control of surface properties for applications like micro-fluidics, genomics, PCR and others.
