CMOS underpins all modern microelectronics technology. Whilst dominant in computing and communications components and systems, CMOS has also been hugely influential in imaging technology, displacing other methods of making semiconductor focal plane array sensors such as CCD . In this talk I will describe new developments in CMOS sensing technology, including the CMOS proton sensing array that has growing influence in instrumentation for analytical chemistry and next generation gene sequencing. I will further discuss new sensor technologies based on CMOS for use in terahertz imaging, and the application of emerging technologies in metamaterials and surface plasmon resonance that are set to have a major impact on integrated sensing technologies. In so doing I will show how CMOS is now at the confluence of many strands of research, far outside its original application domain, and how microelectronics and nanoscale engineering has an impact on some of the most demanding technological applications of today.
