Moore's Law - Past, Present and FutureCurriculum Vitae:
Yan Borodovsky came to US from Kiev, Ukraine in 1979 where he lived and worked in Institute of Nuclear Research of Academy of Science developing ultra-pure semiconductor materials and devices for nuclear radiation spectrometry.
Upon coming to US/California Yan worked at Syncal Corporation during 1979-1982 developing semiconductor thermoelectric conversion materials for deep space satellites power supplies. He started his carrier as a lithographer at AMD in 1982 and in 1985 moved to Oregon to join start-up ATEQ where he worked developing optical path design and assembly, optics test stand and resist process for CORE 2000 laser writer (known as Alta mask laser writer after ATEQ sale to ETEC/Applied Materials).
Yan joined Intel as Staff Litho Engineer in 1987. During following 28 years at Intel Yan worked on all aspects of Intel Lithography and led Intel Lithography Roadmap development, numerous novel lithography processes, tools and materials Pathfinding and Development as well as process-design co-optimization efforts to enable Intel leadership position for multiple technology nodes starting with 0.5micron and ending at 7nm Technology Node at the time of his retirement in July of 2015.
Yan is author of many US patents, publications and multiple presentations at key Lithography Forums including presenting Plenary talk at this year SPIE Advanced Lithography.
Yan contributions to Intel were recognized by appointing Yan to ranks of Intel Fellows in 1999 and to newly established position of Intel Sr. Fellow in 2003. His contribution to Microlithography were recognized by SPIE electing Yan to position of SPIE Fellow in 2013 and to Industry contribution overall by awarding him annual IEEE Cledo Brunetti Award in 2012 “For contributions to developing and implementing innovative lithographic and patterning equipment and processes to enable cost-effective scaling for logic technologies.”
In 2016 SPIE awarded Yan prestigious annual Frits Zernike Award “In recognition of his efforts toward the advancement of multi generational lithography process solutions and as a key contributor of patterning approaches and layout design rules at Intel”.
Upon his retirement from Intel in 2015 Yan continues to reside in Portland, Oregon and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

How to arrest and transport biological nano-objects one at a time: Nanovalving of individual Viruses and Macromolecules in liquidsCurriculum Vitae:
Professor Dimos Poulikakos holds the Chair of Thermodynamics at ETH Zurich, where in 1996 he founded the Laboratory of Thermodynamics in Emerging Technologies. He was a Member of the Research Commission of ETH (2001-2005). He served as the Vice President of Research of ETH Zurich in the period 2005-2007. Professor Poulikakos was the ETH director of the IBM-ETH Binnig-Rohrer Nanotechnology center, a unique private-public partnership in nanotechnology at the interface of basic research and future oriented applications (2008-2011). He served as the Head of the Mechanical and Process Engineering Department at ETH Zurich (2011-2014).
His research is in the area of interfacial transport phenomena and thermodynamics with a host of related applications, and on the development of transformative en-ergy technologies. The focus is on understanding the related physics, in particular at the micro- and nanoscales and employing this knowledge to the development of novel technologies. Specific current examples of application areas are the direct 2D and 3D printing of complex liquids and colloids with nanoscale feature size and resolution, the science-based design of supericephobic and omniphobic surfaces, the chip/transistor-level 3D integrated cooling of electronics, the development of facile methods for the fabrication of plasmonic sunlight absorbers and the development of surface textures for biological applications under realistic fluidic environments (accelerated and guided cell adhesion, re-endothelialization, antifibrotic surface textures and materials).
Professor Poulikakos has been a frequent plenary and keynote speaker in many con-ferences worldwide. He is the Editor in Chief of the Journal the Experimental Heat Transfer, and a member of the board of Editors of Scientific Reports, the Journal of Microscale and Nanoscale Thermophysical Engineering, the Journal of Porous Media and the Intl. Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer. He was also an Editor of the the Journal of Nanoparticle Research (2012-2015) and the Journal ACTA Mechanica 2000-2005. He is the European Editor of the Intl. Journal of Transport Phenomena. He has served as an associate editor of the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer 1999-2002. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME). He represents Switzerland in the world assembly of heat transfer conferences.
