Dr. Xavier Rottenberg obtained his MSc degree in Physics Engineering and the DEA in Theoretical Physics from the Université Libre de Bruxelles in 1998 and 1999, respectively. He obtained in 2008 his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the KU Leuven. He worked one year at the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium in the field of remote sensing from Space. He has been at IMEC Leuven since 2000, where he contributes to research in the field of RF, RF-MEMS, photonics and microsystems modelling/integration. As imec fellow, he currently leads the Wave-based Sensing and Actuation Developments, working among other topics on integrated photonics, flat optics, acoustics, photo-acoustics and M/NEMS. He has (co-)authored over 150 peer reviewed publications, has been granted various patents, was a lecturer or invited speaker at DTIP (‘05), EuroSimE (‘08), ESREF (‘08), ESoA (‘10/‘12/‘14), RF-MEMS summer school (‘13), FETCH 2016, NERF Neurotechnology Symposium (‘16), OpenMinds (‘17), Nanoworkshop at Beijing University (‘18) and co-founded Pulsify Medical in 2019, a young company developing ultrasound imaging patches.
Imec is an international research & development organization. It enables nano- and digital technology innovation with a significant impact on the quality of life. With partners from companies, governments and academia. And supported by the three pillars of R&D: (1) a unique infrastructure that includes a 2.5-billion-euro 300mm semiconductor pilot line, (2) more than 5,000 expert scientists from over 95 countries, and (3) an ecosystem of more than 600 world-leading industry partners and a global academic network. Founded in 1984, imec quickly made its name as the leading research hub for advanced CMOS scaling.
