Fri 10/27/2017

University of Iowa Microfabrication Facility Open House Workshop - Microfluidic Chip for Bio-Medical Applicatons:  The advances in micro- and nano-fabrication technologies are expected to open up new possibilities and applications in medical diagnostics, therapy, drug delivery and regenerative medicine, in particular, enabled by microfluidic chip technologies.

 Participants will:

• Fabricate and Test a Microfluidic Chip and Take it home.

• Obtain Hands-on time on Nanofabrication Tools in dust-free labs.

• See in action the manufacturing technologies involved in the next generation of nano-devices, from DNA sequencing and Cancer detection chips to LED devices, Solar cells, and Smart phones.

Biography:

Aju Jugessur received a Ph.D. degree in Optoelectronics, Electronic engineering, with a focus on Nanofabrication, from the University of Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at McGill University, Canada. His expertise is in the area of photonic devices, nanolithography, and nanofabrication. He was a Senior Research Scientist and Lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, Canada, where he spearheaded the establishment and development of the state-of-the-art Nanolithography Facility. He has introduced courses on nanolithography and micro- and nanofabrication that he is currently teaching. He is currently the Director of the University of Iowa Microfabrication Facility and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. His research interests are at the crossroads of several areas such as photonic crystals, nanofabrication and optical sensing. He has authored numerous scientific and technical journal publications. He is a Member of IEEE and the American Nanosociety.
