Abstract
In the first part of his talk he will present and discuss our recent works on fiber-based nano-scale materials, sensors and devices including realization of a radically new top-to-bottom nanofabrication technique and their applications in electronics, photonics and mechanics; piezoelectric polymer nanostructures for artificial skin, cardiac sensors, and energy harvesting applications; triboelectric sensors and nanogenerators; and nanospring absorbers as a light harvesting platform. In the second part, I will briefly introduce the development of rare-earth doped silica optical fibers and high-power fiber lasers; chalcogenide photonics; digital photonic nose; and toroidal microcavities. In the final part, I will discuss my research plan for next five years. For more information, Bayindir Research Group: www.4unano.com

Mehmet BAYINDIR received his Ph.D. degree in physics from Bilkent University in 2002. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher and research scientist at the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT. He joined Department of Physics at Bilkent University in 2006 and took part in establishing National  Nanotechnology Research Center (UNAM). He served as the deputy director of UNAM from 2006-2013, and director until 2016. The synergy of around 400 world-class researchers and staff, made UNAM one of the top research centers in the region. The transdisciplinary graduate programs initiated at the center attracted more than 110 graduate students from 13 countries. Dr. Bayindir is the author of over 100 articles published in high-impact journals and he holds 3 US patents on fiber-based sensors. His current research interests include nano-scale photonics, fiber-based devices and sensors, realization of a radically new nanofabrication technique, highpower fiber lasers, piezoelectric polymer nanowires and their applications in electronic skin, cardiac sensors and energy harvesting. He has been awarded over 15M USD grants through national and international projects. He received the prestigious European Research Council-ERC grant (first ERC grant awarded to Turkey). Very recently, he has been awarded an ERC Proof of Concept grant to support commercialization of piezo nanosystems for smart skin, cardiac sensors, and energy harvesting applications. So far 28 students completed their MS or PhD thesis under his supervision, where some of them were accepted to the top schools in the world, including MIT.
