Lukas Chrostowski received his BEng in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in 1998, and a PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2004. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of British Columbia, in 2005.
Dr. Chrostowski's research interests are in optoelectronics and nano-photonics. He is interested in the design, modeling, and nanofabrication of lasers, with an emphasis on Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), for applications in high-speed optical communications, optical interconnects and biophotonics. He is also researching silicon photonic integrated circuits (PICs).
Students interested in getting hands-on experience in the design and test of silicon nanophotonics devices may consider the new graduate course (EECE 584) and the CMC workshop on Silicon Nanophotonics Fabrication.
Micro/Nanofabrication and Instrumentation Laboratory
Microfabrication methods and nanofabrication techniques. Imaging and characterization of micro and nanostructures. Restricted to students admitted to the Nanotechnology and Microsystems Option in Electrical Engineering.
An introduction to lasers and applications. Theory, modeling, fabrication and performance of semiconductor lasers. Optical communications links.
Electrical Engineering Seminar and Special Problems - Active Silicon Photonics Design
Course Structure/Operation Students propose, model, design, and layout a Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) using active silicon photonics technology. The layout is designed based on the fabrication technology available from IME Singapore, providing students with an opportunity to design into an advanced photonics manufacturing process. Fabrication is available, at additional cost, via CMC Microsystems.
Design, fabricate, and test a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) using silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology. Modelling and design of optical components.
