Congratulations to Lin Chang from Peking University, Beijing, China. He has been selected as the recipient of this year’s IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award, recognized, “For the development of highly nonlinear ultra-low loss photonic platforms”.
Chang is an assistant professor at Peking University. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from University of California, Santa Barbara. His research focus is on integrated photonics, particularly silicon photonics.
Chang has developed advanced heterogeneous integration technologies for silicon photonics. He has demonstrated highly nonlinear ultra-low loss photonic platforms, which enables the first fully integrated microcomb on chip, and narrowest-linewidth integrated laser. He has published more than 40 papers in journals such as Nature, Science, Nature Photonics. He is the recipient of “2022 rising star of light”. His demonstration of microcombs has been selected as “Top 10 advances of fundamental science in 2020”.
