Jan H. Kuypers (M05) received the Dipl.-Ing. degree from the Department of Microsystem Technology IMTEK at the University of Freiburg, Germany in 2004, and the Ph.D. degree in Nanomechanics from Tohoku University, Japan in 2007. He has been working on the evaluation of mechanical properties of MEMS thin films, deposition of aluminum nitride (AlN) thin films, Aln based resonators including FBAR, SMR and Lamb wave resonators, modeling of SAW and Lamb wave devices, wireless SAW sensors, MEMS based SAW devices, and wafer level packaging. He is the author of the K-model, a higher order Greens function based simulation model for SAW and Lamb wave devices. He was awarded the best Student Paper at the IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium 2007. He is currently working as a research specialist at the Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center (BSAC) at the University of California at Berkeley.
