You are cordially invited to the following EE seminar by Assoc. Prof. Senol Mutlu from Bogazici University on October 3, Wednesday, at 1:40pm in FENS L055.
Resarch, development and production in classical MEMS and integrated circuits is complicated, expensive and time consuming. Facility establishment and maintenance costs are very prohibitive. An alternative method to fabricate sensors, actuators and electronics is to use polymers. In this presentation, I am going to talk about my research activities at Bogazici University Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (BUMEMS) laboratory to develop cheap and simple fabrication methods using insulating and semi-conducting polymers and metals to achieve all polymer integrated microsystems. I am going to present fabrication methods and test results of the fabricated polymer light emitting diodes, polymer transistors and microfluidic channels. These devices can find many applications in the areas of chemical and biological sensors, large-area printable electronics and display technologies.
Senol Mutlu received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (Computers) from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles in 2000 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, in 2002 and 2005 respectively. He is currently an associate professor at the Department of Electrical-Electronics Engineering at Bogazici University. His research interests include MEMS, organic electronics, microfluidics and integrated wireless sensors and actuators. He is the founder and director of Bogazici University Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (BUMEMS) laboratory. He is also one of the codirector of the Microsystem Based Medical Device Development Laboratory.
