Ph.D. Electrical Engineering University of Illinois 1979

Research Statement:
The High Speed Device and IC group is aimed at "breakthrough" device and integrated IC and antenna technology toward THz operation. Prof. Feng (With Prof. Holonyak) invented new transistor, Transistor Laser (3 port operation-an electrical input with an electrical output and optical output) in 2004, opened up new frontier in optoelectronics integration as well as fast laser modulation, switching and signal processing.
Research Interests:
Microelectronics and Photonics Devices and Integrated Circuits: (1)THz and Millimeter-Wave HBT and HEMT devices, modelling and ICs, (2) Nano Si and III-V- CMOS Devices, Modelling and ICs, (3) Transistor Laser, Microcavity Laser and Photonics ICs (4) VCSEL and VCTL Optical Interconnect
Undergraduate Research Opportunities:
RF and Microwave Device and ICs design
Graduate Research Opportunities:
THz Transistor and ICs.
Microwave and Millimeter-Wave ICs
Microcavity and Nqano Laser and High Speed Modulation
