DTS’20 Special Sessions

Special Session 1

NANOmaterials & MIcroSystEms for sustaiNable dEvelopment (NANOMISENE)

Special Session Summary:

The focus of this special session is to provide the state of the art in the nanomaterials field and the opportunity to use them for sustainable development in terms of innovation of new Micro and Nano-Systems for use in Bio and Medical applications as well as in Environment and Agriculture.
The topics are open and are not limited to:

  • Nanomaterials and Microsystems for Medicine, Healthcare, Medtech and Biology
  • Nanomaterials and Microsystems for Environment, Agriculture and Food Safety
  • Nanomaterials and microtechnology for energy harvesting, saving and storage
  • Design and Modeling of Micro and Nano-Systems devoted to these applications
  • Low power electronics for smart sensors

This special session is appropriate for DTS because it presents the nanomaterials needed for the fabrication of Micro and Nano-Systems and their applications in different fields from environment, agriculture, food safety, medicine and biology.

Full name: Prof. Dr. Chérif Dridi
Affiliation: Head of NANOMISENE Laboratory

Presenter Biography:
Chérif Dridi received his MS degree in Physics in 1994, his DEA in Materials and Devices for Electronics from faculty of Sciences of Monastir and his PhD and Habilitation HDR, 2003-2010, in Physics from the University of Tunis, Tunisia. After 14 years, in ISSAT of Sousse where he founded the GREENS team, as assisstant-teacher of physics, he arrived at the Center of Research on Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (CRMN) of Sousse as an associate-Professor and since January 2016 he is full professor of Physics-Naotechnology and head of NANOMISENE  (NANOmaterials and MIcorsystems for Health, ENvironment and Energy) Laboratory of the CRMN of Technopôle of Sousse. His research is focused on development of Nanomaterials and devices for health (biosensors, implantable Microsystems), environment, agriculture and food safety (chemical sensors and nanofertilisers and nanopesticides) as well as energy saving (LED based lighting), harvesting (solar cells), and storage (micro super-capacitors). He was a principal investigator/expert researcher in several international projects (PHC Utique with France, NATO Linkage and SFP, and FP7). Professor Dridi, together with his research group and collaborators, has published/presented over 120 peer reviewed journal publications/communications, in the above mentioned scientific research areas. He has been invited in different universities and given invited talks at several conferences.

Full name: Prof. Dr. Skandar BASROUR
Affiliation:Deputy director of TIMA Laboratory

Presenter Biography:
Skandar BASROUR graduated with Honours from Ecole Normale Supérieure of Tunisia in 1986 and obtained a PhD in microelectronics from the Université Joseph Fourier (UJF) de Grenoble in 1990. From 1992 to 2001 he was an assistant professor in electronics and microsystems at the Université de Franche-Comté (UFC). He contributed to the development and the improvement of the X-ray and UV LIGA microfabrication techniques.

Since 2001, he is a full professor in electronics and microsystems at Polytech Grenoble (UGA) in the electrical engineering department. He was the leader of the Micro and Nano Systems group during 12 years within TIMA laboratory. Since 2013, he is the co-leader of CDSI group. Since January 2015, he is the deputy director of TIMA laboratory.

His research activities are related with the design, fabrication and characterization of high Q micro and nano-resonators as time reference. In recent years he propelled the design of new micro power generators based on piezoelectric thin films (PiezoMEMS approach). These devices have been successfully used for the conversion of mechanical vibrations into electricity, and the first System in Package containing a microgenerator and the power management module has been fabricated and tested. These devices can be used in autonomous sensors nodes in wireless sensor networks or in medical implants. More recently, he is working on acoustic devices such as microphones for aeroacoustics metrology and tactile devices using ultrasound waves for haptic rendering.
All these research topics have been sustained by several academic (national and European funding) and industrial projects. In 2011, some activities of his research group have been valuated in a start-up company (Uromems). He is the co-funder of hap2u a start-up involved in the development of haptic devices.

He is the author and co-authors of more than 200 papers in international revues and conferences, and several patents. He has been the director of more than 25 PhD students. In recent years,he has participated to several Committees for International Conferences and Symposia.
