Plenary Speakers

10th International Conference on Micro-Nanoelectronics, Micro-Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies

Prof. George Malliaras, Prince Philip Professor of Technology, University of Cambridge, UK

Title: “Technology for Bioelectronic Medicine”

George Malliaras is the Prince Philip Professor of Technology at the University of Cambridge. He leads the Bioelectronics Laboratory, an interdisciplinary group of scientists, engineers and clinicians who translate advances in electronics to better tools for healthcare. George received a BS from the Aristotle University (Greece), a PhD from the University of Groningen (the Netherlands), and did a postdoc at the IBM Almaden Research Center (USA).

Before joining Cambridge, he was a faculty member at Cornell University (USA), where he also served as the Director of the Cornell NanoScale Facility, and at the School of Mines (France).

His research has been recognized with awards from the European Academy of Sciences (Blaise Pascal Medal), the Materials Research Society (Mid-Career Researcher Award), the New York Academy of Sciences (Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists), the US National Science Foundation (Faculty Early Career Development Award), and DuPont (Young Professor Award).

He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Linköping (Sweden), elected Fellow of the Materials Research Society and of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and is a member of the Academia Europaea and of the European Academy of Sciences. He serves as a Deputy Editor of Science Advances.

Dr Panagiotis Argitis, INN, NCSR “Demokritos”, Greece

Title: “The critical role of resist materials for patterning in semiconductor industry: recent developments and perspectives”

Dr. Panagiotis Argitis is currently Director of Research at INN-NCSR Demokritos leading the Project on Materials for Nanolithography and Organic Electronics. He received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Athens in 1981 and his Ph.D. in Photochemistry / Photocatalysis from the same University in 1987.

In the period 1988-1991 was a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Chem. Engineering of the Univ. of Texas at Austin and in 1991-92 had a teaching position in Univ. of Crete. In 1992 joined the Inst. of Microelectronics (now part of INN) of NCSR Demokritos.

His research interests include new materials and processes for nanodevices/microsystems and organic electronics with emphasis on nanolithography, resists, EUV lithography, radiation guided nanopatterning, OLEDs, OPVs, sensing devices, and incorporation of metal oxides, polyoxometalates and other molecular redox systems and photosensitive compounds in electronic devices.

Prof. George Papaioannou, Solid State Physics NKUA, Greece

Title: “Reliability Issues in MEMS Actuators”

Prof. George Papaioannou is currently retired but is leading projects on the Reliability of Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Actuators and 2DEG III-V compound semiconductor devices. He received his B.S. in Physics from the University of Athens in 1974 and his Ph.D. in optoelectronic properties of semi-insulating semiconductors from the same university in 1976.

Currently, his research interests are primarily centered around the main MEMS reliability issues of dielectric charging, where he has introduced new characterization methods, and RF stress-induced degradation in pseudomorphic GaAs MMICs.
