  • Optical MEMS Researcher Ming Wu Joins ESI Advisory Board
Aug 2007
MingWu.jpgPhotonic microelectronics supplier Electro Scientific Industries Inc. (ESI) of Portland, Ore., announced that Ming Wu, PhD, has joined its scientific advisory board. Wu, a professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, since 2004, is also co-director of the Berkeley Sensors and Actuators Center. His research interests include optical MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), optoelectronics and biophotonics. ESI president and CEO Nick Konidaris said Wu will help develop the company's core technologies and "strengthen its commitment to innovation." Wu is a fellow of IEEE and a former member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, N.J. From 1992 to 2004, he was a professor of electrical engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles, where was also vice chair of the Industrial Affiliate Program and director of the Nanoelectronics Research Facility. He holds 15 US patents and has served on the program committees of numerous technical conferences. The four other members of ESI's advisory board are: Thomas M. Baer, executive director, Stanford Photonics Research Center; John R. Carruthers, a physics professor at Portland State University and co-director of Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute; Yu-Chong Tai, an electrical engineering professor at the California Institute of Technology; and Steven S. Vogt, an optics expert and a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

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...
