Rapid human modernization demands an enormous amount of optical sensing devices based on optoelectronic engineering. From the conventional semiconductor material, the material expansion is more robust than what we can imaging. As an electrical and electronic engineering background, we always stick with the basic PN junction, circuit theory, and basic electronics.

However, the question is the knowledge we learn enough for the current optoelectronic trend? In optoelectronic, the basic knowledge needed goes beyond the standard syllabus that we learn included solid-state theory, quantum mechanics, nonlinear optic, and material science. What more interesting, the current trend for the normal electronic devices is also changing toward flexible electronic, which another trend of knowledge and research. 2D material semiconductor and quantum dot material show interesting phenomena which do not seem in the electronic device. More interestingly, some phenomena which will not occur at a micro-size such as plasmonic and photonic crystal. The fact is that each material or structure has its advantages and disadvantages. It is up to the engineer to make use of each material to enhance the current electronic or optoelectronic device for better performance.


Speaker Profile

Dr Tan Chee Leong

Dr Tan Chee Leong received BEng and M.S. degrees from the University Malaysia Sabah, Malaysia, in 2005 and 2007, respectively, and Ph. D from Gwangju Institute of Science & Technology, the Republic of Korea, in 2013. He has been a postdoctoral in BISOL, Northwestern University in 2015-2018, working on the development of room operating temperature of extremely low noise high-efficiency III-V SWIR camera for ground operating Keck telescope in Hawaii. 

He is a senior lecturer in Photonic Research Centre, University Malaya, from 2018-2020. Currently, he is an Associate Professor at Nanjing University of Post and Telecommunication. Nanjing, China. He has 14 years of experience in fabricating semiconductor devices such as L.E.D., edge-emitting laser diode, VCSEL, solar cell, and photodetectors.  He is a member of IEEE, SPIE, and O.S.A. His current research interests include plasmonic device, photonic and optoelectronic device and nanostructures for various sensing devices
