Area of Expertise

Optical communications and optical signal processing


Yikai Su received Ph.D. degree in EE from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, in 2001. He worked at Crawford Hill Laboratory of Bell Laboratories from 2001 to 2003. He joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China in 2004. He has been the associate department chair of Electronic Engineering since 2006. His research areas cover optical signal processing in nano photonic devices, and high-speed transmission. He has ~200 publications in international journals and conferences.

Prof. Su serves as a Topical Editor of Optics Letters(2008-2014), a Guest Editor of IEEE JSTQE (2008 and 2011), and a Feature Editor of Applied Optics (2008). He is the chair of the IEEE PS Shanghai chapter, a faculty advisor of the OSA student chapter in SJTU, and serves on OFC TPC (2011-2013). Prof. Su is a senior member of IEEE, and a member of OSA and SPIE.

Lecture Title(s)

Optical signal processing in silicon photonic devices: Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) is an excellent platform for monolithic integration of photonic devices using CMOS fabrication facilities. We discuss a number of signal processing functions in silicon waveguide devices, particularly in ring resonators. These functions include on-chip slow-light delay for different digital modulation formats, photonic phase shifting for microwave photonic signals, dense wavelength conversion based on free-carrier dispersion effect induced by non-linear absorption, optical up-conversion of baseband data to microwave photonic signal, and optical temporal differentiation. The optical devices are compared with electronic counterparts in size, performances and power consumptions.
