Oliver Schmidt's Biography



Oliver Schmidt, Professor & Director, Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung

Prof. Dr. Oliver G. Schmidt is a Director at the IFW Dresden, Germany, and holds a full Professorship for Material Systems for Nanoelectronics at the Chemnitz University of Technology,Germany. His interdisciplinary activities bridge across several research fields, ranging from nanophotonics, nanoelectronics and microfluidics to microrobotics and biophysics. He has received several awards: the Otto-Hahn Medal from the Max-Planck-Society in 2000, the Philip-Morris Research Award in 2002 and the Carus-Medal from the German Academy of Natural Scientists Leopoldina in 2005. In 2010, he was awarded the Guinness World Record for the smallest man-made jet engine. More recently, he received the International Dresden Barkhausen Award 2013 for his work on “Materials, Architectures and Integration of Nanomembranes”. He has published more than 650 papers in peer-reviewed journals and has an H-Index of 82.

On-chip fabricated nanomembranes are thin, flexible, transferable and can be shaped into 3D microtubular Origami MEMS and NEMS devices. This makes them attractive for a broad range of applications and scientific research fields ranging from novel hybrid heterostructure devices to 3D microsystems both on and off the chip. Microtubular MEMS and NEMS are exploited to construct ultra-compact and ultra-sensitive advanced electronic circuitry, sensors and optofluidic components around fluidic channels towards the implementation of lab-in-a-tube systems. They are also useful to study basic mechanisms of single cancer and stem cell migration, growth and mitosis in realistic 3D confined environments.  Off-chip applications include biomimetic microelectronics for regenerative cuff implants and the development of hybrid microbiorobotic motors for paradigm shifting reproduction technologies and innovative cancer treatment procedures.
