Jan van Houdt (Imec) third confirmed keynote

Apr 15, 2016

Prof. Jan van Houdt is the third confirmed keynote speaker of Nanocity 2016. He received a doctoral degree in device physics from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and currently works as the chief scientist at the Interuniversity Micro-Electronics Center (Imec) in Leuven, Belgium. Jan van Houdt will address 3D memory structures in his keynote speech.

Jan Van Houdt received a doctoral degree in device physics from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in 1994. His Ph.D. thesis was on the physics of HIMOS™ Flash memory devices. In 1995, he received the Scientific Award of the Royal Academy for Science, Literature and Fine Arts of Belgium for his research achievements in microelectronics.

After his M.S. thesis, he joined the Interuniversity Micro-Electronics Center (Imec), Leuven, Belgium. In 1990, he invented the High Injection MOS (HIMOS™) cell, which lead to a novel cost-effective nonvolatile memory technology, which he transferred towards 4 industrial product lines. In 1999, he became Group Manager of the Nonvolatile Memory activities at Imec. In 2015 he was appointed part-time professor at the University of Leuven to teach IC technology in the master programmes on electrical engineering and nanoscience & nanotechnology. One of his key specialties is memory technology (business, systems, design, technology and physics perspective).
