Technical Program Chair

Prof. Peter Dragic

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

Peter D. Dragic received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA, in 1999. He currently is an Assistant Professor there. His thesis work focused on the development of high-power fiber lasers for LIDAR instrumentation, and he has continued to work on next-generation laser sources for optical remote sensing applications. Part of this emphasis is on high-performance fiber lasers and the mitigation of nonlinear optical phenomena that limit scalability in these systems.  His research interests include in the design of specialty optical fibers for high power lasers and sensing, with a focus on novel glasses for these applications. He also has been involved with the launch of several start-up companies that focused on various optical technologies.
