PoC/PoN silicon optical biosensors, solar cells, radiation detectors
- B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, 1978.
- M.S. in Electrical Engineering, Clemson University, Clemson, SC, 1984.
- Ph.D in Electrical Engineering on semiconductor device physics, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, August 1987.
- Visiting Assistant Professor in electrical engineering at the University of Florida from August 1987 to May 1989.
- Research Associate at the Microelectronics Inst. NCSR "Demokritos" from June 1989-June 1995. Working on simulation, design fabrication and characterization of silicon radiation detectors and optical biosensors.
- Director of Research at INN, NCSR "Demokritos" since February 2000, and Senior Researcher from June 1995 to February 2000. His research interests include optical biosensors, monolithic silicon optocouplers for biosensing, and bipolar devices. The biosensors developed detect blood markers and harmful substances in food. Dr. Misiakos is the author or co-author of 119 publications in refereed international journals, 63 communications in international conferences, four book chapters and holds a US patent on interferometric optical biosensors integrated on silicon (US Patent No. 11,119,040). The EU patent is pending. Along with his co-researchers Drs. E. Makarona, S. Kakabakos, P. Petrou and Mr. A. Salapatas they are actively pursuing to commercialize the single sided silicon interferometric chips as dip-and-read biosensors. He has supervised 4 Ph.Ds and has coordinated three European projects : EU-BRITE III Project “BOEMIS” BRPR-CT97-0393 (1997-2000), EU-IST Project “BIOMIC” FP5-IST-2000-28214 (2001-2004) and the EU-IST project “NEMOSLAB” FP6-IST-027804 (2006-2009), all in biosensors.
