IMEC Leuven
Imec is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, and has offices in Belgium, the Netherlands, Taiwan, US, China, India and Japan. Its staff of over 2,000 people includes more than 670 industrial residents and guest researchers. In 2013, imec’s revenue (P&L) totaled 332 million euro. In 2014, imec celebrates its 30th birthday. Imec’s mission is to perform world-leading research in nanoelectronics. It leverages its scientific knowledge with the innovative power of its global partnerships in ICT, healthcare and energy. It delivers industry-relevant technology solutions. Research is focused on a broad but selected group of nanotechnology areas where its research capabilities make a difference: CMOS scaling, GaN power electronics, wearable health monitoring, life science technologies, wireless communication, image sensors and vision systems, large area flexible electronics, solar cells and batteries, and sensor systems for industrial applications. To stay on the forefront of research on nanotechnology and nanoelectronics, imec has built up an ultramodern research facility that is continuously expanding: a 200mm cleanroom, a 300mm cleanroom (450mm ready), a silicon photovoltaics pilot line, state-of-the-art laboratories for solar cell research, research on wireless communication, biomedical research and long-term brain research (the latter in the framework of NERF). The imec campus is continuously expanding. To keep playing a world-leading role in research on the most advanced semiconductor processes and technologies, imec started in May 2014 the construction of a new 450mm-compatible cleanroom.
The Life Sciences Technologies (LST) department is the driving force behind the integration of nanoelectronics into life science and diagnostics platforms. It develops instrument platforms around photonic, electrochemical, electrical, and microfluidic sensor components together with expertise on interfacing with biological materials and pharmaceutical and medical application expertise. The department runs its own facilities for molecular biology, human samples, and cell and tissue culturing for experimental characterization and testing of novel platforms. The LST department works closely with other departments on process development, microelectronic design, and system integration.
The LST department has built up a strong research experience and track record in devices for multi-electrode electrophysiology since 2005. It has devised novel CMOS-based electrophysiology devices with in-situ electrical readout, with subcellular pitch dimensions, and advanced capabilities such as open cell recording. The team has experience and equipment to characterize the developed platforms and assays electronically and biologically. The team has developed proof-of-concept demonstrators up to the level of integrated lab instruments used at a daily basis. Its team works across disciplines with nanoelectronics engineers working with trained electrophysiologists in a unique neuroelectronics lab context. Expertise on microfluidics has been developed in the LST department for molecular applications which will be combined into this advanced device.
