Assistant Professor School of Microelectronics Research Group
Dr. Qiancheng Zhao graduated from Zhejiang University, China, in 2012. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Irvine, USA, in 2017. He worked in Apple Inc. as a signal integrity engineer from 2017-2019, and returned to academia as a postdoctoral researcher in the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA since 2019. Dr. Zhao joined the School of Microelectronics in the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), Shenzhen, China in 2021.
Dr. Zhao’s research focuses on silicon photonic integrated circuits, specifically, in ultra-low-loss photonic interconnects, ultra-high-Q resonators, laser frequency stabilization, and silicon nitride photonic devices, which have wide applications in optical communications and lab-on-chip bio-detection. He has a rich experience in design, fabrication, and characterization of integrated optoelectronic devices, and has authored and co-authored more than 30 publications on prestigious journals and conference proceedings, including Nature Communications, APL Photonics, Journal of Lightwave Technology, Optics Express, etc. He also edited a book “Silicon Photonics Bloom”.
