Dr. Alberto Piqué is Head of the Materials and Systems Branch in the Materials Science Division at the Naval Research Laboratory. His research focuses on the study and applications of laser-material interactions. Dr. Piqué and his group have pioneered the use of laser-based direct-write techniques for the rapid prototyping of electronic, sensor and micro-power generation devices. Dr. Piqué holds a B.S. and M.S. in Physics from Rutgers University and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Maryland. He is a SPIE (2012) and APS (2014) Fellow. To date, his research has resulted in over 200 scientific publications, 14 book chapters and 22 U.S. patents. Dr. Pere Serra is professor at the Department of Applied Physics of the University of Barcelona. He received his Ph.D. from the same university in 1997. His research has been devoted to multiple topics in the laser materials processing area, from pulsed laser deposition to laser surface treatments. In the last years he has focused his activity on laser microfabrication technologies, with a special attention to laser printing techniques for the fabrication of biomedical and printed electronic devices. He has co-authored 95 publications in international journals, has given more than 20 invited talks, and served as co-chair and committee member in numerous international conferences. He is currently co-editor of the Journal of Laser Micro/Nanoengineering.
