Maarten Paulides (Eindhoven University of Technology)

Medical technologies play an increasingly important role in keeping healthcare affordable. They can provide cost-effective (home) monitoring, diagnosis and therapy to enable personalized care and cure. The non-invasive nature and distinct features of electromagnetic waves at different frequencies place them at the core of many medical applications, like neurostimulation devices, magnetic resonance scanners and thermotherapy devices. The EM4C&C lab of Eindhoven University of Technology works on these applications using EM waves between 100 Hz and 10 GHz. In the medtech domain, major challenges are to demonstrate effectivity and safety while conforming to tight regulations and reducing animal testing. In response, the lab invests in advanced approaches to infer modes-of-action related to the EM waves, enabling virtual design and optimization of novel devices. In this process, tight collaboration with industry and clinical centers are established and exploited for successful device design, implementation and clinical validation.

Maarten Paulides studied electrical engineering (2002) at Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) and obtained a PhD in health and medical physics (2007, cum laude) from Erasmus University Rotterdam. Since, Paulides worked at Erasmus MC and part-time at TNO. In 2018, he returned to TUE as full professor and chair of the Electromagnetics for Care & Cure lab and director of the Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3TE). Paulides co-founded Sensius Thermotherapy and advises five other SMEs. 

Yves Baeyens (Nokia Bell Labs)

In the past few years, we’ve seen the proliferation of mm-wave radios thanks to the global effort to make ultra-high capacity 5G a reality. Such systems benefit not only from RFIC innovations but also from advances in packaging, material engineering and co-design of various elements to produce scalable and manufacturable products. Near-THz is poised to offer even higher peak capacity for a new generation of 6G wireless networks. This talk focuses on the path to make near-THz systems manufacturable at scale and suitable for mass deployment. It will present various RFICs and interposer technologies operating at E-band, D-band and beyond and integrated systems capable of achieving tens of Gb/s with high spectral efficiency.

Yves Baeyens received a PhD degree in electrical engineering from KU Leuven in 1997. After his PhD, he spent one and a half year as a visiting scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid-State Physics in Freiburg, Germany. Since 1998, hes been with Bell Laboratories, in Murray Hill, NJ, USA, currently the research division of Nokia. As a Senior Bell-Labs Principal Scientist, hes responsible for research in mm-wave ASICs, high-speed electronic and opto-electronic systems. Since 2003, hes an adjunct professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering of Columbia University, New York City, NY, where he teaches a graduate course on advanced microwave circuit design. He's a 2009 Fellow of the IEEE and a 2016 Bell-Labs Fellow.
