JohnMarsh.jpgSemiconductor laser developer Intense Ltd. of Glasgow, Scotland, announced today that John Marsh, PhD, the company's chief technology officer (CTO) and cofounder, has been elected a Fellow by the United Kingdom's Royal Academy of Engineering. Marsh is a board member of Intense and is also professor of optoelectronics systems in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Glasgow. Since he joined the university in 1986, he has established a research group addressing linear and nonlinear integrated optoelectronic systems. He developed new integration technologies for photonic integrated circuits based on quantum-well devices and quantum-well intermixing and holds 13 patents. Marsh is presently president-elect of the IEEE/Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS), and will become president in 2008. From 1999 to 2005, he was a member of the society's board of governors; he was awarded the 2006 IEEE/LEOS Engineering Achievement Award with a colleague for commercializing his quantum-well intermixing technology for photonic devices. Marsh has been a member of the executive committee of the Institution of Engineering and Technology's Photonics Professional Network since 2001. The Royal Academy of Engineering is a national academy that provides independent and impartial advice to government, works to secure the next generation of engineers, and provides a voice for Britain's engineering community.



GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
