Profile Summary

Junpeng Guo was educated at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Peking University. He received three advanced degrees in three fields: a Ph.D. in Optics and Photonics, a M.S. in Fusion Plasma Engineering, and a M.S. in Space Physics. As a Ph.D. student at Illinois, he made the first pixelated micropolarizer array for polarimetric imaging and 3D displays. After graduation from Illinois, he joined Rockwell International Science Center in Thousand Oaks, California as a research scientist. At Rockwell Science Center, his research was in the area of nonlinear optics and nanophotonics. After three years with the Rockwell Science Center, he took a venture to join a start-up company to develop uncooled high-speed semiconductor lasers for optical communications. After having developed the first practical uncooled 10 GB/s laser in the industry, he joined Sandia National Laboratories as a member of technical staff to conduct research on nanophotonics and integrated optics. He also held a research scholar appointment in the Fitzpatrick Center for Photonics of Duke University. In 2005, he joined the faculty of University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). Now he is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Optics. Prof. Guo is the inventor of the plasmon resonance spectrometer sensor, and the inventor of the hybrid metal-dielectric plasmon waveguide. He received Alan Berman Research Publication Award in 2013, ASEE-Naval Research Office Summer Faculty Fellowship in 2011, and ASEE-Air Force Office of Scientific Research Summer Faculty Fellowship in 2010. He was the sole recipient of the University Distinguished Faculty Research Award at UAH in 2016 and the only recipient of the Outstanding Junior Engineering Faculty Award at UAH in 2007. Currently, Prof. Guo serves as a Associate Editor of Photonics Research and a Associate Editor of Journal of Nanophotonics. He is an elected Fellow of SPIE-The International Society for Optics and Photonics.
