Silicon-based micro- and nano-photonic devices for wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical communications, micro-cavity optics, photonic integrated circuits.
Professor Poon received his BA degree from the University of Chicago, Illinois,
in 1995, and his MPhil and PhD degrees from Yale University, Connecticut, in
1998 and 2001, all in Physics. Professor Poon joined HKUST in June 2001. Professor
Poon currently supervises the Photonic Device Laboratory
at HKUST. Professor Poon's research focuses on the design, fabrication and characterization
of waveguide-coupled micro-resonators on silicon chips for WDM optical communication
