Huikai Xie is a Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida. He received his master's degree in electro-optics from Tufts University in 1998 and his Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2002. He also holds BS and MS degrees both in electronic engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology. He was a research faculty at the Institute of Microelectronics at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.
His current research interests include CMOS-MEMS fabrication technology, integrated sensors, integrated inertial measurement units (IMUs), optical MEMS, biomedical imaging, and fiberoptic sensors.
One of his research goals is to develop monolithic, high-resolution, integrated inertial sensors. With the small size and strong on-chip signal processing and wireless communications capabilities, these types of devices can be applied to a variety of areas, such as space, automobiles, 3-D computer games, medical monitoring of rehabilitation training, vibration monitoring of bridges and skyscrapers.
Another goal of his research is to develop portable, inexpensive biomedical imaging instruments for real-time health monitoring and in vivo diagnosis of diseases such as cancers using MEMS and fiberoptic technology. The use of MEMS technology has three-fold impact. First, the high speed of MEMS devices enables real-time imaging. Second, the small size of MEMS devices makes it possible for in vivo imaging of internal organs such as bladder and bronchus. Third, the batch fabrication of MEMS devices results in low cost.
