Keith Goossen, holder of the Ph.D. degree, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA, 1988, is a leading researcher and professor in the field of optoelectronics and optical fiber communication, having authored or coauthored more than 130 refereed journal papers in the field, with an h-index of 33, and having issued 83 patents on the subject. His most cited work is in the area of hybrid integration of optical modulators and VCSELs onto silicon VLSI circuits for optical interconnects and optical transceivers. Since 2002, he has been an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA, where he has been awarded numerous grants and graduated several Ph.D. students. From 2000 to 2002 he was at Aralight, Inc., which he cofounded, a company which produced a 36 fiber channel optical transceiver for optical backplane applications, based upon technology Dr. Goossen invented and developed at Bell Laboratories, which was from 1988 to 2000. Dr. Goossen has also been very active in the field of optical MEMS, producing devices which were the precursors to spectral management devices in wavelength division multiplexed networks. Some recent publications of his are “Loss analysis for a two-wire optical waveguide for chip-to-chip communication,” Optics Express (2013); “Dual-prism coupler for board-level free-space optical interconnects: design and simulations,” Optical Engineering (2012); “Progress in low-power switched optical interconnects,” IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics (2011); and “Cost-effective integration of plastic optical fiber and total internal reflection mirrors in printed circuit boards for parallel optical interconnects,” Optical Engineering (2010). Dr. Goossen is a Senior Member of IEEE.
