Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Electronics Engineering)Address:
UAB is a multidisciplinary university with leading role in the scientific research in Spain. Its main areas of investigation on Sciences and Technology include Nanotechnology, Microelectronics, Material Science and Engineering, Communications, Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence. It is located in Bellaterra, very close to Barcelona and 77 Undergraduate courses are available at the UAB, covering a wide range of fields such as humanities and arts, social sciences, health sciences, experimental sciences and technological sciences. Furthermore, UAB offers a total of 87 doctoral programs and other postgraduate programs such as 3 Erasmus Mundus master's degrees. UAB gathers more than 40.000 students and almost 3.000 researchers in its Campus. UAB is also a pioneering institution in terms of fostering research and has established firm links with research centers abroad, especially with those of the European Community.
Our group has more than 10 years of experience in the development of M/NEMS-CMOS integrated systems in the scope of gravimetric sensors, high performance radio frequency systems and vibrational energy harvesting devices. We are making new efforts on the theoretical basis of NOEMS-based nanoharvesting concepts, on its modelization and on the design and test of new harvesting devices at nanoscale.
Gabriel Abadal received his degree in physics in 1991 and his PhD in electrical engineering in 1997 from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. Since 2002 he is an Associate Professor in the Electronics Engineering Department of the UAB. His research interests is focused in the area of micro and nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS and NEMS) for sensor, RF communications and energy harvesting applications, and their integration using CMOS standard technologies. He has participated in more than 20 national and European research projects, he has contributed to more than 125 conferences and he has published more than 55 papers in journals.
