"Si3N4 based Asymmetric Mach-Zehnder Interferometers for biosensing applications"
presented at the SPIE.FOCUS Armenia: 3rd International Symposium “Optics & its Applications” (OPTICS-2015), Armenia, October 1-5, 2015
As a partner in five EU-ICT FP7 projects on optofluidics for sensing and diagnostics applications in Food, Health and Marine LioniX organized a dedicated booth (see picture) at the huge (30,000 visitors) Laser World of Photonics trade fair in Munich in the last week June 2015 (www.world-of-photonics.com). This event had an added visibility and impact as this year had been chosen to be ‘The Year of the Light’. The participating projects were, next to SYMPHONY FOODSNIFFER (www.foodsniffer.eu), BIOFOS (www.ict-biofos.eu), LIPHOS (www.liphos.eu/), and BRAAVOO (www.braavoo.org). At the booth functional prototypes picture were shown and demonstrations were given (see picture of LIPHOS optofluidic chip with fiber in- and out coupling) to exemplify the potential of the emerging integrated optical waveguide technology for applications in a variety of fields which could solve many societal challenges in the near future. In the satellite EOSOF 2015 (3rd EOS Conference on Optofluidics) of the World of Photonics congress (www.photonics-congress.com) the five project were presented by posters and other information material, which also gave extra attention to the booth. The booth was well received by the many visitors and of which 35 had a serious interest in the projects. Hopefully, some of these will result in future collaborations with partners in the projects!
The PhD activity will focus on the design, fabrication and experimental testing of microsystems and sensors for agrofood applications. The position will be inserted in a research group currently involved in EC projects promoting the use of microsystems for the analysis of safety and quality of foods, and in particular in dairy industry.
The ideal candidate has theoretical and technical background in the following fields:
- finite element simulation
- microfabrication techniques
- material science
- analytical chemistry
- electronics and measurement systems
A preferential criterion is previous experience in microfluidics, microsystems and experimental testing of analytical systems

The paper "Enhanced sensitivity in label free sensing using integrated wedge resonators" has been accepted for oral presentation at EUROPT(R)ODE XII, to be held in Athens, Greece (April 13-16, 2014)
The “Smart systems for food industry” workshop aims to present and discuss recent advancement in technologies and perspective for their use in agrofood industry. The workshop is organised in the framework of the EU project “SYMPHONY” in collaboration with the best EU ongoing project on this field to bring together scientists and create a research network to share achievement, experience and approaches.
The SYMPHONY kick-off will take place on November, 14th-15th at FBK's premises in Trento.
