How Mid-infrared Photodiodes Save the World?

Speaker: Baile Chen

Time: May 27, 3:15pm - 4:15pm.

Location: Room 105, H2 Building


While our eyes can only access a narrow part of electromagnetic spectrum, some important applications require us to detect at the frequencies of light outside the visible. Mid infrared light is one of these ranges that our eyes can't access, but have various applications. These applications span many areas such as chemical sensing, gas monitoring, industrial quality control, public health, medical diagnostics, infrared imaging and free-space communications. In the seminar, I will discuss the current status of mid infrared photodiodes which can help us "see" another world clearly, and talk about how we build the mid infrared photodiodes to achieve better performance.


Dr. Baile Chen received his bachelor degree in physics from Department of Modern Physics in University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, China, in 2007. He received his master degree in physics and Ph.D degree in electrical engineering both from University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA in 2009 and 2013, respectively. In February of 2013, he joined in Qorvo Inc in Oregon as RF product development engineer working on various RF power amplifiers and BAW filters for RF wireless communication systems. In January, 2016, He joined in the School of Information Science and Technology in Shanghai Tech University as a tenure track assistant professor.

His research interests include III-V semiconductor materials and devices, SWIR/MWIR photodiodes and laser diodes, high speed/high power photodiodes, UV photodiodes and silicon photonics.
