Development of active optical aberration canceling device
Investigated liquid-crystal devices to cancel the spherical aberration for “Bluray”; optical disk recording system for High Definition (HD) format. Devised a liquid-crystal panel with microdots on electrode to modulate the optical phase of passing light smoothly.
2002 – 2003
Visiting at University of California at Los Angeles (financial supporting by Sony Corp.)
From August 2002 to September 2003, stayed at Optoelectronic Circuits and Systems Laboratory in University of California, Los Angeles as a visiting researcher. The laboratory is supervised by Prof. Bahram Jalali. During staying Dr. Prakash Koonath and I devised an optical waveguide fabrication technology that can make optical waveguide underneath the surface of silicon substrate by modification of Separation by Implanted Oxygen (SIMOX) technology. This technology was reviewed by Nature Materials.
