Electronically integrated microscopic robots

Date 24 February 2020 Time 11:00 - 12:00
Location AMOLF Lecture Room
Speaker Itai Cohen (Cornell University, New York)
Category Public Colloquium

What would we be able to do if we could build electronically integrated machines the at a scale of 50 microns? At this scale, semiconductor devices are small enough that we could put the computational power of the spaceship Voyager onto a machine that could be injected into the body. Such robots could have on board detectors, power sources, and processors that enable them to sense, interact, and control their local environment. In this talk I will describe several cutting edge technologies we are developing to achieve this vision.
