Dr. Mohssen Moridi
Mohssen Moridi received the master’s and Ph.D. degrees in microtechnology from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. After finishing his PhD he had several research positions in Switzerland. In 2016 he moved to Austria as a head of Microsystem division at CTR AG to establish a MEMS department and to manage a new cleanroom dedicated to industrial R&D. Since 2019 he is a part of Silicon Austria Labs and recently became the Head of Research Division Microsystems. He is currently managing more than 40 researchers with the focus on Thin Film Technologies, Integrated Photonics, Magnetic and Piezoelectric Microsystems. Mohssen has more than 20 years of experience in development of MEMS devices.
Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) has been founded to be a top European research center for electronic-based systems. In the network of science and economy, we carry out research at a global level and create the basis of groundbreaking products and processes.View Full Profile
