Xsensio considerably expands the potential of existing wearable products with the development of a unique tiny wearable intelligent stamp that will analyze biomarkers at the surface of the skin to provide unprecedented real-time information about our health and wellness, in a simple and non-invasive way.
Speaker Biography (Adrian Ionescu)
Prof. Ionescu is an Associate Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. He received the B.S./M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, Romania and the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble, France, in 1989 and 1997, respectively. He held staff and/or visiting positions at LETI-Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique, Grenoble, CNRS, Grenoble, and Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1998 and 1999.
He is the founder and director of the Nanoelectronic Devices Laboratory (Nanolab) of EPFL. The research of Nanolab focused on various subjects in the field of beyond CMOS and More-Than Moore devices and technologies. The group activities are centered on silicon micro/nano-electronics with special emphasis on the technology, design and modeling of new device concepts; steep slope transistors (tunnel FETs and ferroelectric FETs), MEMS and NEMS devices with main emphasis on low power resonator concepts (vibrating body transistors), new materials (carbon nanotubes serving for building suspended gate or body FETs) to achieve novel analog and radio frequency functions and low power sensing, when integrated on silicon platforms.
Prof. Ionescu has published more than 200 articles in international journals and conference proceedings. He is the recipient of the André Blondel Medal 2009 for contributions to the progress in engineering sciences in the domain of electronics as cited by Society of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (SEE, Paris), France.
He and his PhD students received some Best Paper Awards at international conferences. He served on the International Electron Devices Meeting technical committees in 2003/2004 and 2008/2009 and he was the Technical Program Committee Chair of the European Solid-State Device Research Conference in 2006 and he will again serve as co-chair of ESSDERC conference in 2013. He is a member of the Scientific Committee of the Cluster for Application and Technology Research in Europe on Nanoelectronics (CATRENE) and the academic representative of Switzerland to the European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council (ENIAC). He is an elected Member of International Planning Working Group for Nanoelectronics from 2007 and he is the European Chair of the Emerging Research Devices of ITRS from 2010. Prof. Ionescu is the initiator and co-coordinator of FET Flagship Pilot Guardian Angels for a Smarter Life, an advanced research program that has been selected by the European Commission as one of the six leading candidates for future emerging technologies to win a final award of one billion Euros in 2012.
