Dr. Roy (Troy) Olsson III joined DARPA as a program manager in June 2014. His research interests include materials, devices, and architectures that enable low-power processing of wireless and sensor signals, vanishing materials, electronics and structures, and phased array antennas.
Dr. Olsson is currently serving DARPA while on leave as a Principal Electronics Engineer in the MEMS Technologies Department at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM. At Sandia, Dr. Olsson led research programs in the area of piezoelectric micro-devices realized in thin films of aluminum nitride (AlN) and lithium niobate (LiNbO3) for processing of RF, inertial, and optical signals. Together with the Sandia Microresonator Research Team, he was awarded an R&D100 award in 2011 for his work on Microresonator Filters and Frequency References.
Dr. Olsson has received numerous technical awards, has authored more than 90 technical journal and conference papers, and holds 16 patents in the area of microelectronics and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
Dr. Olsson received B.S. degrees in electrical engineering and in computer engineering from West Virginia University and the MS and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His graduate research was in the area of implantable, low power, mixed signal integrated circuits for interfacing with the nervous system.
