Jin-Wei Shi

Dr. Jin-Wei Shi was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan on January 22, 1976. He received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan in 1998 and the Ph.D. at the Graduate Institute of Electro-Optical Engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan in 2002. He was a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), CA, during 2000 and 2001. In 2002-2003, he served as a post-doc researcher at Electronic Research & Service Organization (ERSO) of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI). In 2003, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Central University, Taoyuan, Taiwan, where he is now an professor. In 2011, he joins the ECE Dept. of UCSB again as a Visiting Scholar. His current research interests include ultra-high speed/power optoelectronic devices, such as photodetectors, electro-absorption modulator, sub-millimeter wave photonic transmitter, and semiconductor laser. He has authored or co-authored more than 83 journal papers, 130 conference papers and holds 20 patents. He was the invited speaker of 2002 IEEE LEOS, 2005 SPIE Optics East, 2007 Asia-Pacific Microwave Photonic conference (AP-MWP), and 2008 Asia Optical Fiber Communication & Optoelectronic Exposition & Conference (AOE). He served as the technical program committee of OFC 2009-2011. He was the recipient of the 2007 Excellence Young Researcher Award from Association of Chinese IEEE and the 2010 Da-You Wu Memorial Award.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Jin-Wei Shi

This book describes different kinds of photodiodes for applications in high-speed data communication, biomedical sensing, high-speed measurement, UV-light detection, and high energy physics. The photodiodes discussed are composed of several different semiconductor materials, such as InP, SiC, and Si, which cover an extremely wide optical wavelength regime ranging from infrared light to X-ray, making the suitable for diversified applications. Several interesting and unique topics were discussed including: the operation of high-speed photodiodes at low-temperature for super-conducting electronics, photodiodes for bio-medical imaging, single photon detection, photodiodes for the applications in nuclear physics, and for UV-light detection.
