Martin Gijs's Biography

Martin Gijs, Professor, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne

Martin A. M. Gijs received his degree in physics in 1981 from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, and his PhD degree in physics at the same university in 1986. He joined the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 1987. Subsequently, he has worked there on micro- and nano-fabrication processes of high critical temperature superconducting Josephson and tunnel junctions, the micro-fabrication 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 the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 1997. He presently is a professor in the Institute of Microengineering, where he is responsible for the Microsystems Technology Group. His main interests are in developing technologies for novel magnetic devices, new microfabrication technologies for microsystems fabrication in general and the development and use of microfluidics for biomedical applications in particular. He is in the editorial board of Microfluidics and Nanofluidics and the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering. He has published over 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals and holds over 20 patents.
