Dr. Lin Zhu obtained the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from California Institute of Technology in 2008. While at Caltech, his work mainly focused on the modal control of high power, broad area semiconductor lasers using photonic periodic nanostructures. Dr. zhu’s current research interests include high power, high beam quality diode laser arrays, beam combining, optomechanics, and plasmonic devices. His work has been funded by many federal and state agencies, including ARO, DARPA, NSF, SC Space Grant, SC EPSCoR/IDeA, and ORAU. Dr. Lin Zhu was the recipient of the DARPA Young Faculty Award, ARO Young Investigator Award, and ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award. He has served on the technical committee of IEEE/OSA CLEO conferences.
