L. Scott Stephens's Biography

L. Scott Stephens, CEO & Founder, Hummingbird Nano, Inc., Professor, University of Kentucky

Dr. Stephens is a professor and an entrepreneur with more than 30 years of industry and university experience in the broad areas of machine design and manufacturing processes. He has pioneered the integration of new technology into these areas; most notably applying photolithography to create a new generation low power and temperature-controlled bearings and seals. His work on fluid lubrication and magnetic actuators has appeared in highly ranked journals with his work on magnetic systems appearing on the cover of IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. Presently, his work with Hummingbird Nano merges his research in microsystems, fluid mechanics, heat transfer and magnetics to enable a revolutionary new additive manufacturing process applied to microfluidics. Dr. Stephens presently serves as CEO for Hummingbird Nano where he has successfully led the company from the lab into a new production facility and its first revenue.

Dr. Stephens received his PhD from the University of Virginia and is a Fellow of the ASME.

Hummingbird Nano’s new manufacturing technology enables features and performance in microfluidic chips that conventional methods have had difficulty in achieving.  These include circular channel cross sections, solid form chips (no layers, no lids, no bonding), side-wall inputs, integrated connectors, ultra-smooth channels and no expensive tooling.  The net result for users is better flow, better detection, less chip loss due to channel fouling, less reagent use, higher cell survivability and less time to process.   This presentation gives a brief overview of the manufacturing process, reviews test results for the chips and discusses their performance benefits.
