Dr. Chen’s research focuses on developing advanced nano/micro-manufacturing processes and nano/micro-mechanical systems for biomedical and life sciences applications. Meantime, he investigates fundamental issues regarding near-field optics (e.g. plasmonics), thermal/fluid transport, and nanomechanics in these nano/micro-systems.

The goal of his research is to overcome the technical limitations of large scale conventional manufacturing processes, develop new processes and nano/micro-devices with good understanding of fundamental physics and chemistry, and to use these nano/micro-systems to advance health care. His research is highly interdisciplinary, involving laser physics, photonics, nano/micro-manufacturing, thermal/fluid transport, nanomaterials, and biomedical engineering on a small length scale and/or time scale.

Inside Innovation is a presentation series featuring the latest innovative technologies developed by UC San Diego researchers. Get an inside look at what is happening in the labs, explore commercialization opportunities and inquire about licensing.

UC San Diego Office of Innovation and Commercialization - providing campus-wide innovation and entrepreneurism support, building a dynamic entrepreneurial community and promoting a vibrant regional ecosystem.

There is ample parking adjacent to the auditorium building, once you head upstairs from the parking lot, go walk past the Bella Vista Caffe to the left.
