Title: Photonic chips for diagnostic applications


Photonic chips are becoming more and more available in diagnostic applications such as biosensing and optical imaging. During this talk, I will walk you through these exciting applications and demonstrate how we make these chips in-house using a simple and fast technique.


Dr. Avci received her PhD degree from the Integrated Optical Microsytems Group at the University of Twente in 2012. As of September 2017, she is a tenured assistant professor at the VU University Amsterdam, Department of Physics and Astronomy. Her research combines integrated optics with different imaging and sensing modalities in order to realize novel portable, affordable and higher sensitivity devices.
