Invited Speakers

Dr. Fabien Sauter

Fabien Sauter

Before joining the LETI in 2002 as the senior scientist, Dr. Fabien Sauter-Starace spent two years at Corning FRC where he developed MEMS (design and packaging) for optical telecom and biology. Since his arrival in the LETI, he has been in charge of cell on chip projects and packaging issues in the Biosystems on Chips department. In 2005, he became Project manager of a large european project. He is also a key member in several research program on medical devices.

Dr. Fabien Sauter-Starace has cumulated more than 5 years experience in silicon development dedicated to Biology and Healthcare. He is author of 15 scientific papers and holds 3 patents.

Dr. Fabien Sauter-Starace graduated from the Arts et Métiers in 1996 and he holds a Ph.D. in Mechanics (2001) from Nancy University with a grant from EDF R&D.

Prof. Dr. Sergej Fatikow

Sergej Fatikow

Born on March 5, 1960 in Ufa, Russia, studied computer science and electrical engineering at the Ufa Aviation Technical University in Russia, where he received his doc­toral degree in 1988 with work on intelligent control of complex non-linear systems. After two years of teaching at UATU he mo­ved to the Institute for Process Control and Robotics at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany, where he worked as a scientific researcher and since 1996 as an assistant professor. In 2000 he accepted an associate professor position at the University of Kassel (Germany) and in 2001 a full professor position at the University of Oldenburg (Germany). Prof. Fatikow is Head of the Institute for Micro­robotics and Control Engineering.

Prof. Fatikow accomplished research stays at different universities in the U.S.A., Canada and Great Britain. His research interests include different aspects of mic­ro- and nanorobotics, micro­actuators and micro­sensors, robot-based nanohandling automation, and neuro-fuzzy robot control. He is author of two books on microsystem technology, microrobotics and micro­assembly, published by Springer in 1997 and by Teubner in 2000

Dr. Philippe Roussel

Graduated from the University of LYON in Electronics and Microelectronics. He was granted a Ph-D in Integrated Electronics Systems from the Applied Sciences National Institute (INSA) in LYON. He is working at Yole Développement since 1998 and is involved in techno-economical market analysis in the fields of Compounds Semiconductors, Microsystems and Optoelectronics at a material, equipment and device level.

Dr. Wilhelm H. Bruenger

Studied physics at the Universities of Hamburg and Tuebingen, getting his PhD degree on the field of electron interferometry. For 2 years he worked as visiting scientist at the IBM – Thomas Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights,NY, on the field of e-beam testing. Since 1981 he is with the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology where he is head of the e-beam and ion projection lithography group.
