Lingjuan Zhao received the B. Sc. and M. Sc. degrees in Semiconductor Physics from Tianjin University, Tianjin, China, in 1985 and 1988, respectively. In 1988, he joined the Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, where she worked on the research and development of semiconductor lasers and semiconductor detectors. In 1997-1999, he was a Visiting Scholar at Brookhaven National Lab, Upton, New York., where she was involved in the design and fabrication semiconductor nuclear detectors, including Silicon drift detector, Silicon pixel detector and X-ray detector. Since 2003, she has been a Professor with the Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her current research interests involved monolithically integrated optoelectronic devices, such as electroabsorption modulated DFB lasers, widely tunable DBR lasers, EA modulated tunable DBR lasers, semiconductor optical amplifier and optical logic gate etc.
She has won a first-Grade Award of Science and Technology of Chinese Materials Research Society in 2005 and 2nd-Grade Awards at Science and Technology Progress of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1991.
She organized and co-organized the following research projects:
Research and development of widely wavelength tunable lasers (2002-2005), supported by National 863 project:
New quantum materials and devices(2000-2005), supported by National 973 project:
Research on integrated device of semiconductor optical amplifier, electroabsorption modulator and spot size converter in series for optical network, supported by National Nature Foundation Committee.
Research on InP function materials for optical logic, supported by National Nature Foundation Committee
