EXPLORING SYNERGY BETWEEN DRUG DELIVERY AND MEMS
Technical University of Denmark, DENMARK
Our research center of excellence IDUN combines research in nanosensors/centrifugal microfluidics and microfabricated devices for oral drug delivery. This allows us to explore the synergy between sensor development and search for new pharmaceutical delivery tools and materials. We will show examples of recent findings and results within drug/polymer characterization, microdevices for drug delivery and diagnostics. Also, new applications within therapeutic drug monitoring using Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering will be presented as well as sensor integration with centrifugal microfluidics platforms.
MICROELECTROMECHANICAL SYSTEMS IN THE QUANTUM LIMIT
Andrew N. Cleland
University of Chicago, USA
There has been significant progress in researchers' ability to use mechanical systems as quantum-limited sensors, most notably by the operation of the gravity wave detector LIGO at or near the quantum limit. I will describe progress in using MEMS systems in the quantum limit, focusing on operation of MEMS resonators and surface acoustic wave devices at the single phonon limit.

RECENT ADVANCES IN FLEXIBLE OPTOELECTRONICS
Northwestern Polytechnical University, CHINA
In the past decades, organic optoelectronics has made great progress both in fundamental studies and commercial applications because of their excellent properties, such as solution processable, flexible, low-cost and able to be made at large area. Our recent work is devoted to the development of high-performance organic semiconductors for flexible electronics and optoelectronics. We will present our recent advancement on rational molecular design of organic semiconductors for light-emitting diodes, lasers, memories, chemo-/biosensors, and latest research results about ultralong organic phosphorescence, light-emitting perovskites and color display technologies.
