BETR Research Thrust: System Integration
Christos Adamopoulos received the B.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering from National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece, in 2015, and the M.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer sciences from the University of California at Berkeley in 2019, where he is currently working towards a PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. Vladimir Stojanovic. He has held internship positions at Infineon Technologies, Munich, Germany and Apple, Cupertino. His current research interests include analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits and the design and implementation of electronic-photonic integrated systems for biosensing lab-on-chip applications.
Evanescent field sensors based on resonant photonic structures have shown increasing promise in monitoring label-free molecular interactions. However, full integration of the biophotonic sensors together with a low noise readout and signal processing system in a high volume SOI process remains an unmet need. This technology will reduce cost and enable self-contained point-of-care devices that are needed in health-care applications. One strategy to enable this new class of systems-on-a-chip is to use monolithic integration of silicon photonics and advanced, high-performance CMOS transistors at a large scale and high yield. We propose a monolithically integrated platform in a CMOS 45RFSOI process for biophotonic sensing. This platform opens the pathway to the first Lab-on-Chip system with nanophotonic sensing and advanced electronics on a single die.
