ISR Microsystems Seminar Series
Innovative optical microsystems for medicine and other applications

Hans Zappe
University of Freiburg

Host
Reza Ghodssi

Abstract
Advances in MEMS have greatly benefitted optical technologies, as microsystems fabrication and assembly techniques have been applied to the realization of new micro-optical concepts. We will present recent work on novel micro-fluidic membrane lenses; deformable polymer lenses; purely fluidic and completely integrated irises; and scanning micro-lens and axicon-based imaging systems assembled on silicon micro-optical benches. A range of applications will be demonstrated using a few examples from biophotonics, including implantable optical medical diagnostics and endoscopic 3D imaging.

Biography
is Professor of Micro-optics and Associate Dean of Engineering in the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg, Germany. He earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees from MIT and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, all in Electrical Engineering. After pursuing research activities in electronics, integrated optics and semiconductor lasers at IBM, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics and the Centre Suisse dElectronique et de Microtechnique, he joined the University of Freiburg in 2000. His current research interests focus on tunable micro-optics, optical micro-systems for medical applications and novel nano-optics.

This Event is For: Graduate • Undergraduate • Faculty • Post-Docs • Alumni • Corporate
