Alumnus Duan Joins Faculty at University of Alabama
ECE alumnus Lingze Duan has accepted a position as Assistant Professor with the Physics Department at the University of Alabama in Huntsville this fall. His research will focus on developing compact low-phase noise lasers for optical sensing and studying radiation-pressure cooling of macroscopic objects.
Dr. Duan received his Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering in August 2002. His thesis was titled "Smoothly Wavelength-Tunable, Mode-Locked Fiber Laser," and his co-advisers were Professors Julius Goldhar and Mario Dagenais. After graduation, Duan did post doctorate research at MIT's Research Laboratory of Electronics with Prof. Franz Kaertner and then at Penn State's Department of Physics with Prof. Kurt Gibble.
