Afterwards there will be a brief review of the research program of Stanford group into optical and optical/wireless networks.


Bio of Prof. Leonid Kazovsky:

Prof. Leonid Kazovsky joined Stanford University in 1990.

He founded Photonics and Networking Research Laboratory (PNRL) at Stanford University and lead PNRL since establishing it in 1990.

PNRL conducted research on green (energy efficient) optical/wireless access networks, in-building networks, quasi-passive photonic components, and next-generation Internet architectures.

Prior to joining Stanford, Prof. Kazovsky was with Bellcore doing research on coherent, WDM, high-speed and other advanced optical fiber communication systems (later, Bellcore changed its name to Telcordia, and was acquired by Ericsson).

Prof. Kazovsky’s research of coherent optical systems resulted in what is widely considered key foundations of modern coherent systems.

While on Bellcore assignments or Stanford sabbaticals, Prof. Kazovsky worked at the Heinrich Hertz Institute, Berlin, Germany; Hewlett-Packard Research Laboratories, Bristol, England; Technical University of Eindhoven, Eindhoven, the Netherland; Scuola Superiore St. Anne, Pisa, Italy; Danish Technical University, Copenhagen, Denmark; Acreo, Stockholm, Sweden; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) under the Chair of Excellence Program; and Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain.
