Ph.D. UC Berkeley, 1987

Yuhwa Lo received his PhD in electrical engineering from UC Berkeley in 1987. He was a Member of Technical Staff at Bellcore (now Telcordia) from 1988 to 1990. In 1991, he joined the faculty of School of Electrical Engineering, Cornell University as an Assistant Professor and then became an Associated Professor. He became a professor of ECE Department of UCSD since 1999. Dr. Lo maintained a broad interest in several research areas, including optoelectronic materials and processing, optoelectronic devices, semiconductor lasers, optical MEMS, an more recently microfluidics, biophotonics, nanodevices, and biomedical systems-on-chips. His research is multidisciplinary and involves close collaborations with other academic and industrial groups.

Current Research

Single photon detection for optical communication, sensing, and imaging.
Microfluidic-photonic-acoustic integrated circuits for biomedical systems-on-chips.
Bio-inspired optic devices and systems.
Investigation of fundamental biomolecular interactions/properties using nanophotonic approaches.

Selected Publications
Dr. Lo has published nearly 300 papers in technical journals and conference proceedings, and (co)authored and edited several books and special issues. He was awarded more than a dozen patents. He has consulted for several companies and co-founded two companies, Nova Crystals and Rhevision Technology. He is a fellow of Optical Society of America.
