Résumé: Lab-on-Chip is a well-established technology, whose main application area relates to biology and medical diagnosis. On the other hand, application to the environment is another emerging application area with potentially a global impact. In this presentation, we elaborate on micro-instrumentation for the study of the environment and the measurement of fluidic natural resources, with focus on air, water and complex fluids. Illustration is given of merging optical MEMS with microfluidics technologies, leading to optofluidic devices, with increased capabilities, raising in the same time new questions on the related science.

Note biographique: Tarik Bourouina received the M.Sc. degree in physics from the University Houari Boumedienne, Algeria, in 1987, the Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies in electronics from the University of Paris-Sud Orsay, Orsay, France, in 1988, the Doctorat (Ph.D. degree) from the University of Paris XII Creteil, Creteil, France, in 1991, and the Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches degree from the University of Paris-Sud Orsay in 2000. He started research in MEMS at the ESIEE Engineering School of Paris in 1988, where he conducted projects in the field of silicon-based acoustic microsensors, including microphones and the acoustic microgyroscope. In 1995, he joined the Université Paris-Sud-Orsay in the Institut d’Electronique Fondamentale, a joint laboratory with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. From 1998 to 2001, he was with The University of Tokyo, Japan, as an invited scientist in the framework of the Laboratory of Integrated Micro Mechatronic Systems. He is currently a Professor at ESIEE, Université Paris-Est, Noisy-le-Grand, France. His research interests include microsensors, microanalysis systems, and optical MEMS.
