Shen Elected as OSA Fellow

Shyh-Chiang Shen has been elected to the class of 2019 OSA Fellows. Shen is a professor in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

Shen is among the 98 OSA members elected to its 2019 class of Fellows.He is being recognized “for the development and advancement of compound semiconductor optoelectronic devices and integrated circuits.” 

A member of the ECE faculty since 2005, Shen leads the Semiconductor Research Lab, where he and his team work on wide-bandgap semiconductors and their applications in optoelectronics and power electronics. Their research is heavily sided on novel device design, validation, and manufacturable fabrication technology development for compound semiconductors. 

Prior to joining Georgia Tech, Shen developed a proprietary commercial-grade InP transistor technology that led to the first demonstration of monolithically integrated 40Gb/s PIN+TIA differential-output optical receivers. Since 2005, he has made significant technological impacts in advanced III-Nitride (III-N) wide-bandgap semiconductor device research. Many of his works at Tech stand as state-of-the-art III-N device demonstrations.

Shen’s research has yielded eight awarded U.S. patents, five book chapters, 170-plus publications in refereed journals and conferences, and many invited seminar talks to date. He is also an editor of a book entitled Nitride Semiconductor LEDs (2nd Ed., October 2017).

Shen has also been honored for his contributions in research and education at Georgia Tech. He received the Georgia Tech Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentor Award in 2012; the ECE Outstanding Junior Faculty Member Award in 2011; and the ECE Richard M. Bass/Eta Kappa Nu Outstanding Teacher Award in 2010.
