Profile Summary

Sasan Fathpour received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Universityof Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2005. His dissertation was on quantum dotlasers and spintronic light sources and materials, in which he demonstrated the world’s first temperature invariant semiconductor laser and the fastest quantum dot laser to date. After receiving his Ph.D., he joined the Electrical Engineering Department of UCLA as a postdoctoral fellow and was promoted to a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2007. His UCLA research on energy harvesting in silicon photonics has received worldwide press coverage and won him the 2007 UCLA Chancellor’s Award for Postdoctoral Research. Prior to joining CREOL in September 2008, he was a Senior Researcher at Ostendo Technologies Inc., where he was working on novel visible light sources for display applications.

Professor Fathpour received the NSF CAREER award in 2012. He is the co-editor of a book entitled "Silicon Photonics for Telecommunications and Biomedicine" published by CRC Press in 2012. He is a co-author of about 70 journal and conference papers and 6 book chapters.
