He held visiting appointments at Stanford University, the University of Waterloo, Ritsumeikan University, the University of Bologna, and the University of Freiburg. Prior to 1988, he held the Henry Marshall Tory Chair at the University of Alberta, where he was Acting President of the Alberta Microelectronics Centre and co-founder and Director of LSI Logic Corporation of Canada. From 1974 to 1982 he worked for Landis & Gyr Zug (now Siemens) Switzerland, where he directed the solid-state device laboratory. He received the D. Sc. degree from ETH Zurich in 1971. Henry Baltes is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Member of the Swiss Academy of Technical Sciences. He received the European Science Award of the Koerber Foundation, the Wilhelm Exner Medal of the Austrian Trade Association, and honorary doctoral degrees of the University of Waterloo and the Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna. Oliver Brand is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA. He received his diploma degree in Physics from Technical University Karlsruhe, Germany in 1990, and his Ph.D. degree (Doctor of Natural Sciences) from ETH Zurich, Switzerland in 1994. Between 1995 and 2002, he held research and teaching positions at the Georgia Institute of Technology (1995-1997) and ETH Zurich (1997-2002). Dr. Brand has co-authored more than 100 publications inscientific journals and conference proceedings and two books. His research interest is in the areas of CMOS-based micro- and nanosystems, MEMS fabrication technologies, and microsystem packaging. Dr. Brand is on the editorial board of Sensors and Materials and has served on the program committees of a number of conferences, including MEMS and Eurosensors. Gary K. Fedder is a Professor at Carnegie Mellon University where he holds a joint appointment with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Robotics Institute. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from MIT in 1982 and 1984, respectively. From 1984 to 1989, he worked at Hewlett-Packard on a VLSI IC tester and on modeling printed-circuit-board interconnect for high-speed computers. He received his Ph.D. in 1994 from U.C. Berkeley, successfully demonstrating the first microstructure with sigma-delta multi-mode electrostatic servo control. He is a subject editor for IEEE J. MEMS and on the editorial board of IoP J. Micromech. and Microengineering. Professor Fedder's research interests include microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) modeling, simulation and synthesis, integration of MEMS and CMOS, microsensor design, microactuator control systems, and probe-based data storage. Christofer Hierold holds the Chair of Micro- and Nanosystems at the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland, since April 2002. Prior to that, he spent eleven years with Siemens AG and Infineon Technologies AG, responsible for R&D on microsystems, advanced CMOS processes, memories, nanoelectronics and new materials. During his time in industry, his major research and development achievements were in the field of CMOS compatiblemicrosystems, such as fully integrated, surface micromachined intelligent CMOS pressure sensors and fingertip sensors. His current research work focuses on the evaluation of new materials for MEMS, on advanced microsystems and on nanotransducers. Professor Hierold holds numerous patents and has published over 20...
