Subhajit Guha
Brief Bio
Subhajit Guha has obtained his Masters degree in Microelectronics and Microsystems from Hamburg University of technology (TUHH) in 2012 and concluded his doctoral studies in 2015 from Technical University of Berlin. Since 2012 he is with IHP Microelectronics. His main research area is semiconductor technology for biomedical applications. He has authored or coauthored more than 25 publications in peer reviewed journals and conferences.


Integrated lab-on-a-chip systems on silicon technology lead to miniaturization and less expensive biodevices. Integrated sensor systems are a step ahead from the established hybrid sensor approaches. Such systems are capable of label free fast detection of biomolecules (proteins, DNA, cells)with ultra-high sensitivity. Sensitivity enhancement is achieved due to the close proximity of read-out circuits owing to the same silicon platform. This workshop focuses on such biosensors and readout techniques on silicon platform (CMOS and BiCMOS technology). Integrated microfluidic platforms for easy handling of biological suspensions will also be a part of the workshop.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Silicon based Biosensors Circuits for Biosensing Bioimaging
- Integrated Microfluidics MEMS based
- Biosensors Plasmonic
- BioSensors
- Biodevice Packaging
