"Physically-based virtual prototyping of MEMS: The ‘virtual microtransducer fab’ revisited" by Prof. Dr. Gabriele SCHRAG, Technical University of Munich, Chair for Physics of Electrotechnology
some text Gabriele Schrag is currently Professor ad interim at the Chair for Physics of Electrotechnology of the Technical University of Munich. Her group works in the field of modeling and design of MEMS with a specific focus on virtual prototyping and predictive simulation methodologies, parameter extraction, and model verification for microdevices and microsystems. She studied physics at the University of Stuttgart and received her doctorate (with honors) from the Technical University of Munich.

ABSTRACT: Today’s mature fabrication processes enable a very high integration of components leading to systems with enhanced functionality and complexity. The design and optimization of such microsystems have to be supported extensively by a proper system design in order to ensure short time to market. A good 20 years after the proposal of the ‘virtual microtransducer fab’*, we visit this concept again, discuss the state-of-the-art of and current approaches to a physics-based and predictive MEMS design and illustrate them for selected applications.

"Graphene Biosensors for Biomedical Analysis" by Professor Tianhong CUI, University of Minnesota
some text Tianhong Cui is currently the Distinguished McKnight University Professor at the University of Minnesota. He is an Adjunct Professor at Mayo Clinic, a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the University of Cambridge, and a Laureate of Blaise Pascal Chair in France. He is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME). He is the founding Executive Editor-in-Chief for two Nature journals, Light: Science & Applications and Microsystems & Nanoengineering. He is also serving as the founding Editor-in-Chief for the first AAAS/Science Partner Journal titled Research.

ABSTRACT: This talk presents the combination of “bottom-up” layer-by-layer (LbL) nano self-assembly and “top-down” micromanufacturing techniques to fabricate graphene MEMS and electronics for biomedical applications. With nano self-assembly and surface micromachining, highly flexible graphene-based beam platform for micro sensing and actuation was fabricated and investigated successfully with a potential for biomedical applications.
