Biography

Yidong Huang was born in Beijing, China. She received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in optoelectronics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1988 and 1994, respectively. From 1991 to 1993, she was with Arai Laboratories, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, on leave from the Tsinghua University. Her Ph.D. dissertation was mainly concerned with strained semiconductor quantum well lasers and laser amplifiers. In 1994, she joined the Photonic and Wireless Devices Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation, where she was engaged in the research on semiconductor laser diodes for optical-fiber communication and became an assistant manager in 1998. She received “Merit Award” and “Contribution Award” from NEC Corporation in 1997 and 2003, respectively. She joined the Department of Electronics Engineering, Tsinghua University in 2003, as a professor, and be appointed by the Changjiang Project and the National Talents Engineering in 2005 and 2007, respectively. She was Vice Chairman of the Department from 2007-2012 and has been the Chairman of the Department from 2013. She is presently engaged in research on nano-structure optoelectronics.

Professor Huang authored/co-authored more than 300 journal and conference papers. She is a senior member of the IEEE.

1998-2003.3 Assistant manager, Photonic and Wireless Devices Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation.

Developed DFB laser diodes for digital metropolitan area and access networks, as well as uncooled and directly modulated 1.3mm DFB LDs for 10Gb/s ethernet.

 

1994~1998 Member of technical staff, Kansai Electronics Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation.

Developed and implemented a novel design method for external optical feedback resistant DFB-LDs based on a dynamic transient analysis. Set up a 2.5Gb/s transmission experimental system with variable external optical feedback. Optimized the 1.3mm MQW structure for high temperature operation.

 

1991-1994 Ph.D. student at Arai laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology.

Conducted thesis research on strained quantum-well (QW) laser diodes and laser amplifiers. Based on a generic model, developed an improved theory on the gain characteristics in strained QWs and discovered the advantages of tensile-strained QWs for semiconductor laser diodes. Based on this theory, designed and fabricated laser diodes and optical amplifier with high perpormances.
