Profile Summary

Sasan Fathpour is a Professor at CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He also holds a secondary joint appointment at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCF. He received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2005. He then joined the Electrical Engineering Department of UCLA as a postdoctoral fellow. Since joining the UCF faculty in 2008, he has received several university, national and international recognitions, including the NSF CAREER Award (2012) and the ONR Young Investigator Program Award (2013).

Dr. Fathpour’s current research interests include heterogeneous integrated photonics, nonlinear integrated optics, silicon photonics, and unconventional photonic platforms operating in the mid-wave- and near-infrared and visible wavelength ranges. His team’s research at CREOL has been highlighted in Nature Photonics, Optics and Photonics News, Laser Focus World, and several other trade magazines and professional websites.

Prof. Fathpour is a co-author of over 170 publications, including 35 invited journal papers and conference presentations, 6 book chapters and 3 patents. He has co-edited the book "Silicon Photonics for Telecommunications and Biomedicine," CRC Press. He is the cofounder of Partow Technologies, LLC, a spinoff company from his CREOL team’s research on thin-film lithium niobate photonics. He is a Fellow of OSA, a Senior Member of SPIE and IEEE and a Member of MRS.
