personal page gives an overview of
ongoing research activities that I have
been involved in over the years. This
page complements various official sites
such as the one hosted by UCLA's
Electrical Engineering Department.
However, this site can be updated
rather quickly and therefore offers a
convenient venue to share various
materials I find interesting. Please
feel free to email me your thoughts and
comments as I would enjoy linking to

Chair Professor of Electrical
Engineering at UCLA with joint
appointments in the Biomedical
Engineering Department, California
NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) and the
UCLA School of Medicine Department of
Surgery. He received his Ph.D. in
Applied Physics at Columbia University
in 1989 and was with Bell Laboratories
in Murray Hill, New Jersey until 2002
before coming to UCLA. He is a Fellow
of IEEE, the Optical Society of America
(OSA), and the American Physical
Society (APS). He is the recipient of
the R.W. Wood Prize from Optical
Society of America for the invention
and demonstration of the first Silicon
Laser. In 2005 he was elected into the
Scientific American Top 50. He has
published over 300 papers and holds 9
