Nikolas Papadopoulos

Nikolas Papadopoulos received a Diploma on Electrical and computer engineering (2005) and a PhD on poly-TFT circuit design at Aristotle Univ. Thessaloniki (2010). In 2009, he was a recipient of the ERASMUS scholarship at UPC (Spain) on solution processed TFTs and circuits. From 2011 to 2015, he was a postdoc and research associate with the AFET group, Univ. of Waterloo, Canada, working on CMOS driving, monitoring, and TFT circuit designs for AMOLED displays. In 2015, he joined imec (Belgium) as a researcher developing (analog) circuits and RFID/NFC tags on plastic substrates for various (public) funded projects. Nikolas has been involved in the FP7 project PYTHAGORAS and a number of H2020 projects, including CAPID, A-PATCH, FLICS, EU innovation-awarded PING and Hi-Response, and SMARTEES. He has more than 70 peer-reviewed publications at Nature, IEEE, SID, and other conferences and journals. In 2019, he got his research on the cover of Nature Electronics. Since 2022, he is senior researcher and technical lead of TFT circuit design in imec and leading the Thin-Film PPD project.
