Hideki Kamitsuna received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics and Dr. Eng. degree in communication engineering from Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan, in 1986, 1988, and 2004, respectively. In 1988, he joined the NTT Radio Communication Systems Laboratories, Yokosuka, Japan, where he was engaged in research on MMICs. In March 1990, he joined ATR Optical and Radio Communications Research Laboratories, Kyoto, Japan (on leave from NTT), where he was engaged in research on MMICs for future personal communication systems. In March 1993, he returned to the NTT Wireless Systems Laboratories, where he was engaged in research and development of microwave photonics including monolithically integrated photoreceivers, MMICs for satellite on board phased-array systems, and MMIC power amplifiers for wireless local area networks (LANs). Since August 1999, he has been with the NTT Photonics Laboratories, Atsugi-shi, Kanagawa, Japan, where he is currently a Senior Research Engineer. His current interests are ultrahigh-speed optical and electronic devices/integrated circuits (ICs) for optical communication systems including 10G-EPON systems. Dr. Kamitsuna is a Member of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), Japan. He was the Recipient of the 1994 Young Engineer Award, the 2004 Best Paper Award, and the 2005 Electronics Society Award presented by the IEICE. He was also a Recipient of the 2000 European Microwave Conference (EuMC) Microwave Prize presented at the 30th EuMC, Paris, France.
