News

Eli Yablonovitch, co-founder of Luxtera, is named Fellow for his work on lasers and photonics

Eli Yablonovitch of UC Berkeley electrical engineering and computer sciences has been named fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, an organisation that champions the societal benefits of university research.

Yablonovitch, director of the multi-university National Science Foundation-funded Centre for Energy Efficient Electronics Science, is a pioneer in optoelectronics.

He championed the use of strained semiconductor lasers in today's optical telecommunication and coined the term 'photonic crystal' "“ an artificial structure that manipulates beams of light in the same way that silicon and other semiconductors control electric currents.

His startup company Ethertronics has shipped over 1.7 billion cellphone antennas, and Luxtera, a company he cofounded, is a leader in silicon photonics.
