About this book

DeMicheli, et. al., Nanosystems Design and Technology

This book addresses the impact of nanotechnologies on the design of electronic systems. Coverage includes technologies ranging from nanoelectronics to sensing and micro/nanofluidics, and encompassing techniques that bridge the gap between engineering and biology. Since the application space of nanosystems is very vast, Nanosystems Design and Technology focuses on specific topics that exemplify the challenges and opportunities that nanotechnology brings to the system design table.

  • Addresses state-of-the-art in evolution of nanosystems, including hybrid technologies, integrated sensing and processing;
  • Presents a multidisciplinary framework for design of heterogeneous, embedded systems (hardware) and corresponding software infrastructure;
  • Focuses on system-level design that can be applied to numerous applications (e.g., lab-on-chip design, large-scale sensor networks, bio-analysis and synthesis);

About the authors

Giovanni De Micheli (Ph.D. U.C.Berkely 1983) is Professor and Director of the Institute of Electrical Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland and President of the Scientific Committee of CSEM, Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Previously, he was Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. His research interests include several aspects of design technologies for integrated circuits and systems, such as synthesis, hw/sw codesign and low-power design, as well as systems on heterogeneous platforms including electrical, micromechanical and biological components. Prof. De Micheli is the recipient of the 2003 IEEE Emanuel Piore Award for contributions to computer-aided synthesis of digital systems. He is a Fellow of ACM and IEEE.

Yusuf Leblebici (Ph.D. U.I.Urbana Champaign 1990) is Professor of Electrical Engineering at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland From 1991 to 1993 he worked as Visiting Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. From 1993 to 1998, he was on the faculty of Istanbul Technical University as Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering. He also worked as a senior designer and project manager at ETA ASIC Design Center, Istanbul. From September 1996 to March 1998, he was an Invited Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL).

Martin A.M. Gijs (Ph.D. K.U. Leuven 1986) joined the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 1987, where he worked on micro-and nano-fabrication processes of superconducting Josephson and tunnel junctions, the microfabrication of microstructures in magnetic multilayers showing the giant magnetoresistance effect, the design and realisation of miniaturised motors for hard disk applications and the design and realisation of planar transformers for miniaturised power applications. He joined EPFL in 1997 as Professor of Micro Techniques. His present interests are in developing technologies for novel magnetic devices, new microfabrication technologies for microsystems fabrication in general and the development and use of microsystems technologies for microfluidic and biomedical applications in particular.

János Vörös (Ph.D. XXX) is an Associate Professor in the Institute for Biomedical Engineering of the University and ETH Zurich heading the Laboratory for Biosensors and Bioelectronics. Prof. Vörös is interested in research and teaching in the areas of Bioelectronics, Nano-Biotechnology, Biosensors, Biophysics, and Biomaterials with special focus on the understanding, monitoring and controlling of molecular and cellular processes at biological interfaces. His research group focuses on the development of novel biosensor techniques for diagnostics and drug discovery; on using nanobiotechnology for interfacing neural networks; as well as on controlling and understanding the behavior of biomolecules and cells in the presence of electrical fields and currents.
