  • Biography

Dr. Véronique Rochus (born 1978), received her M.S. degree in Physics Engineering from University of Liège in 2001 and a D.E.A. on “Nanostructures et Microsystèmes pour l’électronique et les communications“ at the University of “Paris-Sud” in 2002. She received her PhD in Applied Science from University of Liège in 2006 and then worked on MEMS modelling as postdoctoral researcher financed by Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research until 2010. During that period she performed postdoc stays at TU Delft as well as at Kyoto University. Afterwards she joined the Interuniversity MicroElectronics Center (IMEC) in 2010 where she is now Principal Member of Technical Staff and where he actively contributes to the research in the field of MEMS design and characterization.

  • Presentation
PhoXonic microsystems for augmented and virtual reality

This presentation will introduce novel developments of wave-based sensors and actuators enabling phononic (micro-acoustic) and photonic (nano-optical) platforms ported from silicon wafer processes to glass panel processes. In particular, we will present extremely sensitive opto-mechanical sensors handling parallel read-out for electronic skin as well as piezo-electric micromachined ultrasound technologies enabling gesture recognition, emotion monitoring and mid-air non-contact haptic feedback.
