Héctor J. De Los Santos, PhD


Héctor J. De Los Santos received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, in 1989. He founded NanoMEMS Research, LLC, Irvine, CA, a company engaged in Nanoelectromechanical Quantum Circuits and Systems (NEMX) and RF MEMS (NanoMEMS) research, consulting, and education, where he focuses on discovering fundamentally new devices, circuits and design techniques. Prior to founding NanoMEMS in 2002, he spent two years as a Principal Scientist, RF MEMS, at Coventor, Inc., Irvine, CA. From 1989 to 2000, he was with Hughes Space and Communications Company, Los Angeles, CA, where he served as Principal Investigator and the Director of the Future Enabling Technologies IR&D Program. Under this program he pursued research in RF MEMS, quantum functional devices and circuits and photonic bandgap crystal devices and circuits. He holds over 30 U.S., European, German and Japanese patents. His research interests include, theory, modeling, simulation, design and demonstration of emerging devices (electronic, plasmonic, nanophotonic, mechanical systems in the quantum regime, etc.), and wireless communications.

During the 2010-11 academic year he held a German Research Foundation (DFG) Mercator Visiting Professorship at Institute for High-Frequency Engineering and Electronics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology/University of Karlsruhe, Germany, where his activities included teaching, and conducting research on his DFG-funded project "Nanoelectromechanical Interferometric Tuning with Non-Equilibrium Cooling for Microwave and mm-Wave Electronics." From 2001-2003 he lectured worldwide as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer of the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. Since 2006 he has been an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer of the Electron Devices Society. In February 2020 he was bestowed upon the title of Honorary Professor by Amity University, Noida, Delhi-NCR, Uttar Pradesh, India. He is a member of Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu and Sigma Xi. He is an IEEE Fellow.

Library E-Books

We are signed up with aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus.

These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a "patron-driven demand" model.
