Dr. David Shaver is a Program Manager in the Strategic Technology Office. Prior to that he served as Chief Scientist for the Air Dominance Initiative, deputy director of the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO), and as a program manager in MTO.
Before coming to DARPA, Dr. Shaver served as the head of the Advanced Technology Division at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from 1994-2012, where he oversaw research in such areas as high performance imaging sensors, deeply scaled silicon microelectronics, solid state lasers, optoelectronics, photonics, superconductive devices, quantum computing and biological agent sensors. He also participated directly in the development of photon-counting sensors, 3-D-integrated imagers and technology related to trusted electronics. Before becoming division head, Dr. Shaver was responsible for bringing online and leading Lincoln’s new Microelectronics Laboratory, a silicon integrated-circuit fabrication facility. He also led the Submicrometer Technology Group, which pioneered the development of 193-nm-wavelength optical lithography, now used for all industrial production of leading-edge CMOS ICs, and he served as the technical champion for 193-nm on the SIA Lithography Technical Working Group. Before that he served as Chief Scientist and Director of Research for Micrion Corporation (acquired by FEI) where he was involved in the development of focused ion-beam and laser-beam microchemistry systems for photomask, microcircuit, and flat-panel display repair and modification. Earlier in his career, he was involved in such diverse areas as developing zone plates for x-ray imaging, electron-beam lithography, electron-beam testing and circuit restructuring, radiation effects, wafer-scale memories and neurophysiology.
Dr. Shaver has served on a number of DoD and other national studies, and has been a consultant to the Defense Science Board and a participant in a National Academy of Sciences study on detector technology. He co-chaired the International Symposia on 193-nm Lithography.
Dr. Shaver received his Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Shaver is a Fellow of the IEEE. For relaxation, he enjoys aerobatic flying.
