Kort presentation

Prof. Klas Hjort leder programmet i mikrosystemteknik.

Jag har lång erfarenhet av avancerad mikroteknik. Nyligen har mitt fokus varit heterogena mikrosystem på rostfritt stål, flexibla folier och elastiska substrat; främst för användning inom biomedicin och trådlösa sensor- och aktuator-noder. Jag är koordinator för H2020-projektet SOMIRO, där jag arbetar med att bygga små simmande mikrorobotar och jag leder ett SSF-projekt där jag bygger robottextiler för beröring.

Klas Hjort is Professor in Materials Science, Head of the Microsystems Technology (MST) program, and Dean of Engineering at Uppsala University.

Hjort is experienced in advanced microengineering. Previously, his focus was telecom applications, using optical and radio-frequency MEMS. Recently, he has focused on heterogeneous microsystems on glass, ceramics, stainless steel, flexible foils and elastomers; for biomedical and life science applications, and applications in harsh environment. Providing microsystems to his partners, he has been leading national and European projects on wireless sensor and actuator networks, using his digital rigid-stretch printed circuit board technology.

Today, he is co-ordinating the Horizon 2020 project SOMIRO, which forward state-of-the-art in several fields and integrate all in a swimming soft microrobot that is autonomous with only energy from the sun light. In addition, he is PI for the SSF project Touch, where novel haptics with backscatter communication, energy harvesting and fluid mechanics enable a natural feeling of touch, using interaction design based on soma aestetic theory. He is also one of the founding partners of the national Centre for Natural Hazards and Disaster Science (CNDS).

He has published more than 300 scientific papers and is the holder of several patents. He was recipient of the Finnish Distinguished Professorship Program in 2010. As a member of MEMSWAVE, he was awarded as one of the finalists for the Descartes Prize 2002 of the Commission of the European Union.

Klas Hjort was born in Säter, Sweden, in 1964. He received the M.Sc. degree in engineering physics and the Ph.D. degree in materials science from Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden, in 1988 and 1993, respectively. In 2008, he became full Professor and since 2012 he is Head of the Microsystems Technology (MST) program at Uppsala University.
