SPIE Microtechnologies set for 8-10 May in Barcelona

Academic and industrial scientists are set to present their most recent progress in integrated photonics, microfluidics, hybrid nanosystems, quantum communication, and other light-based technologies for energy harvesting, biomedical, and other applications at SPIE Microtechnologies, 8-10 May in Barcelona.

LOGO for SPIE Microtechnologies 2017Four conferences at the Hotel Alimara will cover such topics as materials, applications, sensors, and other devices created with nanophotonics, quantum optics, bioMEMS, and related technologies.

Each day of the symposium will have a plenary session with a top speaker in the field.

On Monday, Luca Benini, a professor at the Universita di Bologna (Italy) and chair of digital circuits and systems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), will give a plenary talk on energy efficiency with smart integrated microsystems.

On Tuesday, Alfons Dehé, senior principal on MEMS devices at Infineon Technologies (Germany), will discuss MEMS microphone innovations in a 9 am plenary session. And Jose A. Garrido, head of the Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices group at Catalan Institute of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (Spain), will give a plenary talk on graphene technologies for bioelectronics and neuroprosthetics on Wednesday.

A poster session will be held Tuesday afternoon.

Ulrich Schmid, a professor at Technische Universität Wien (Austria), is symposium chair. Cochairs are Jacopo Iannacci of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Italy), José Luis Sánchez-Rojas Aldavero from Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha (Spain), and Carles Cané of the National Center of Microelectronics (Spain).
