With heartbreaking sadness, we learnt that our beloved Professor Charles K. Kao has left us. Professor Kao is memorized as a great human being and a great achiever, who established the CUHK EE Department as our founding Department Chair and invented optical fibers to empower the high bandwidth communications, among many many significant others. The best way for us to show respect to and to memorize Professor Kao is to work harder and be a better human being to make our planet a better and better place to live!
Our deepest condolences to Ms. Kao and her family!
With great sorrow,
