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.
