Carl Jackson is founder and CTO of SensL. Carl holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. from Clemson University (USA) and a Ph.D. from the National University of Ireland, Cork in Microelectronics. His doctoral research work was carried out at the Tyndall National Institute and focused on the development of the core CMOS-compatible, low-light sensor which SensL has commercialized. Carl has over 50 publications and patents in the area of low-light sensors and he is a recognized leader in the area of solid-state silicon photomultipliers and photon-counting technology.
After completion of his research at the Tyndall National Institute in 2002, Carl founded Photon Detection Systems which carried out further development of his solid-state sensor technology and productizing of the core detector. Additionally, Photon Detection Systems provided detector module design for commercial OEM and research customers. In 2004, Carl realized that a significant commercial opportunity existed for the core low-light sensor technology and SensL was founded to exploit the opportunity. All of the technology from Photon Detection Systems was transferred into SensL at this time.
Carl is the technology visionary of SensL and has lead the development of the core technology from single diode sensors at the research level, to full commercial implementation with millions of light sensors per system combined with high performance packaging, electronics and software.
