Dr. Mager has published 60 articles on several scientific journals (Advanced Materials, Biosensors & Bioelectronics, Science Advances, Lab on a Chip, etc.) for pursuing his research interests on Embedded Systems, non-conventional MEMS, Inkjet Printing, Lab-on-a-Disc, extreme point-of-care diagnostic, magnetic resonance.
Abstract: Modern widely available technology has reach a level of sophistication that it often actually exceeds the level needed to solve a certain problem. Even though the computational power of modern microcontrollers is similar to the power of supercomputers 30 years ago, they are rarely used in academic science. Similar with fabrication technology, modern general purpose machines offer enough precision to obtain high quality results. In this talk two examples will be given, one from the fabrication domain, were inkjet printing is used to fabricate micro-coils. The Second one uses Arduino microcontrollers to improve the handling and the quality of centrifugal microfluidic devices.
