Bachman, Mark


B.S., University of Texas, Austin, 1985
Ph.D., University of Texas, Austin, 1994

Bachman is co-founder and associate director of UCI's Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility, a premier clean room research facility devoted to micro and nanosystems engineering. Bachman maintains an active research program in sensors, MEMS, BioMEMS, micro-instruments and nanotechnology for applications in communications and life sciences. He has initiated and lead microsystems-based research projects for DARPA, NIH, NSF and UC Discovery, as well as for major contracts from industry affiliates such as Texas Instruments, MOOG, Raytheon and Hitachi Chemical Research. He was awarded 2003 Outstanding Professor in Engineering by UCI for his teaching accomplishments; and was awarded the UCI Innovation Award in 2005 for his research accomplishments.


Research and development of "integrated microsystems and nanosystems." These microscopic systems require designing, building, testing and using devices that are too small to be seen with the naked eye, with application areas including electronics, sensors, industrial mechanics, aerospace, telecommunications, health sciences, materials science and biotechnology.
