Microelectronics at work for sustainable healthcare
- Saturday, 19 January 2019
The Medical Delta has launched twelve research programmes that work on technological solutions for sustainable care. EEMCS is represented in three programmes; Neurodelta (Wouter Serdijn), Medical Delta Cardiac Arrhythmia Lab (Wouter Serdijn and Alle-Jan van der Veen) and Ultrafast Ultrasound for the Heart and Brain (Michiel Pertijs), all part of the Microelectronics department.
In order to give the research programmes an extra impulse, a strategically important project is financed within each research programme.
In the Medical Delta 2.0 Neurodelta program Vasiliki Giagka and Wouter Serdijn (both Section Bioelectronics) will work on miniature implants for simultaneously measuring and influencing brain activity by means of light and ultrasound.

Within the Medical Delta 2.0 Cardiac Arrhythmia Lab, Virgilio Valente (Section Bioelectronics) and Richard Hendriks and Borbala Hunyadi (both Section CAS) will work on new bioelectronic signal acquisition and processing techniques to identify the electropathology of cardiac dysrhythmia, such as atrial fibrillation, in an organ-on-chip set-up.

Within the Medical Delta 2.0 programme Ultrafast Ultrasound for the Heart and Brain, Michiel Pertijs (Section Electronic Instrumentation) will work on smart ultrasound probes that can take 3D images of the heart and brain at high speed, with the aim of enabling new and better diagnostics of cardiovascular and neurological disorders.

Prof. G.Q. Zhang, Microelectronics Department of EWI, received the “Achievement Award” from 20th IEEE international conference on “Thermal, Mechanical and Multiphysics Simulations and Experiments in Microelectronics and Microsystems” (EuroSimE) on 26-03-2019 in Hannover, Germany.
Micro electronics colloquium, Thursday March 28, 15.30 EEMCS Restaurantzaal
The XG- “Next Generation Sensing and Communication” research theme is proud to announce a colloquium devoted to the design and development of advanced data converters based on conventional (delta-sigma) as well as unconventional (built-in signal-processing) techniques. The main application of such data converters is in the transceivers, where they enable the reception of multi-channel and multi-standard signals. We are very honoured, to have two leading scientist presenting their work - namely; Prof. Nan Sun , University of Texas and Muhammed Bolatkale, NXP/TU Delft
Vasiliki Giagka appointed associate editor for Bioelectronic Medicine
Vasiliki Giagka, assistant professor at the Bioelectronics Group at Delft University of Technology, has been invited to the editorial board of Bioelectronic Medicine. The journal asked Giagka for her expertise in fabrication microsystem integration and packaging for neural implants. With her appointment, Giagka is currently one of the youngest associate editors working for the journal.
Wouter Serdijn nieuw lid Wetenschappelijke Raad Medical Delta
Het bestuur van Medical Delta heeft Wouter Serdijn op 7 februari benoemd tot lid van de Wetenschappelijke Raad van Medical Delta. De Wetenschappelijke Raad heeft een belangrijke taak in het realiseren van de doelstelling 'Technologische oplossingen voor duurzame zorg; Van Molecuul tot Toepassing'. De raad telt 26 leden en is sinds eind 2018 actief.
First Microelectronics Synergy Grants
The department of Microelectronics (ME) has just awarded its first Synergy Grants to three research teams. As the name implies, these grants are intended to strengthen the synergy between the research done by the various sections of the ME department. The main authors of the winning research proposals are Akira Endo & Sten Vollebregt, Virgilio Valente & Massimo Mastrangeli and Bori Hunyadi.
