Shyh-Chiang Shen, Ph.D.

Dr. Shen received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering at the National Taiwan University in 1993 and 1995, respectively. He earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2001. During his graduate study at the University of Illinois, he joined the HSIC group and was involved in the development of low-voltage RF MEMS switches and ion-implanted GaAs MESFETs using e-beam direct gate-writing photolithography techniques

Dr. Shen joined Xindium Technologies Inc. as a senior processing engineer in June 2001. He developed a proprietary high-performance InP SHBT technology for 40 Gb/s monolithically integrated optical receivers and InP-based power HBT technology for wireless communications.

In January 2005, he joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, where he is currently holding a Full Professor position. He is leading the Semiconductor Research Laboratory (SRL) at Georgia Tech and is actively working on research projects that cover several III-N optoelectronic devices, including high-sensitivity III-N avalanche photodiodes (APD), InGaN-based blue/green laser diodes (LDs), UV light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and UV LDs. In microelectronic device research, his group has been focused on high-frequency and high-power III-N field effect transistors (FETs), III-N heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) and bipolar switches (PIN rectifiers, etc.)

Dr. Shen is a recipient of the 2010 Richard M. Bass Outstanding Teacher Award, which award was determined independently by the majority votes of the 2010 senior Class in School of ECE at Georgia Tech. He is also a recipient of the 2011 Outstanding Junior Faculty Award in ECE and the 2012 Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentor Award at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Shen authored and co-authored more than 190 publications in refereed journals and conferences, is a contributor of several book chapters on III-N technologies and served as a co-editor of a book on the LED technology. He holds 7 awarded US patents in microelectronic areas. Dr. Shen is a fellow of the OSA and a senior member of the IEEE.
