Feb 11, 2021   |   NH Business Review

"Eric Fossum, a Dartmouth College professor who specializes in emerging technologies, has been announced as a winner of a 72nd annual Technology and Engineering Emmy Award," reports NH Business Review.

"Fossum is being honored for inventing and pioneering the intra-pixel charge transfer CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensor, which is the basis for such devices as cellphone cameras, webcams and digital-still cameras.

"The honor, a first for Dartmouth engineering faculty, will be presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. He will be presented with the award in a virtual ceremony scheduled for October.

"'First and foremost, it makes me happy to see people using the technology to have fun and enjoy life. But honestly, it is also a little hard to wrap my head around how much impact it has had on society and business and medicine and so many facets of modern life,' said Fossum."
