General Chair

Paul Crump
Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Germany

Paul Crump Bio:

Paul Crump (M’97–SM’07) received the B.A. (Hons.) degree in natural science (physics) from Oxford University, Oxford, U.K., and the doctoral degree in physics from Nottingham University, Nottingham, U.K., in 1992 and 1996, respectively. His thesis dealt with experimental studies of 2-D electrical transport effects in semiconductor heterostructures.

From 1996 to 2001, he was with Agilent Technologies Corporation, Ipswich, U.K., where he helped develop high performance single-mode InP-based laser diodes. In 2001, he joined nLight Photonics Corporation, Vancouver, WA, USA, where he helped develop high power, high-efficiency GaAs, and InP-based broad-area diode lasers and bars.

In 2007, he joined the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik, Berlin, Germany, where he is the head of the High Power Diode Lasers Lab, occupied in the development of high-performance high power diode lasers.

Program Chair

Akihiko Kasukawa
Furukawa Electric Co, Japan

Akihiko Kasukawa Bio:

Akihiko Kasukawa received B.S, M.S and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering all from Tokyo Institute of Technology. He jointed Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. At Furukawa, he has been engaged in R&D of long wavelength semiconductor lasers. From 1990 to 1991, he spent one year for developing high performance QW lasers at Bell Communications Research (Bellcore) Inc., Red Bank, NJ as a visiting researcher. He conducted R&D of high power lasers both 980nm and 1480nm for EDFA, widely tunable lasers based on arrayed DFB, and high performance 1060nm VCSELs. He is a Senior Fellow at Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. He serves as a Vice President of Technical Council in Electronics Society of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE) of Japan. He is Fellow of IEEE, Japanese Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) and IEICE of Japan.
