Optical Processing for Next Generation Fiber Communications
Prof. Chester Shu’s team has demonstrated significant research progress in the area of optical communications as reflected by a number of research awards and paper awards. His Ph.D graduate Dr. Chow Kin-Kee received the Young Scientist Award from the Hong Kong Institution of Science (HKIS) in 2004 for his work on optical processing with nonlinear photonic crystal fiber. His another Ph.D graduate, Fok Mei Po Mable, received the prestigious IEEE LEOS Graduate Student Fellowship Award in 2005, the IEEE Hong Kong Section Postgraduate Paper First Prize in 2007, and the CUHK Best Research Output Award by research postgraduate student in the same year, based on the work in optical processing for advanced fiber-optic communication systems. Other students in his team received best paper awards from many academic conferences including the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Pacific Rim, Asia Optical Fiber Communication Conference, and the IEEE LEOS (HK) Postgraduate Conference, all in the areas of optical fiber communications.
