Xuelin Yang received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in optics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1992 and 1995. From 1999 to 2001, He joined in the Lab STIM, Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, France, as a Postdoctoral Researcher. His research fields were organic nonlinear optical materials & devices. From 2001 to 2004, Dr. Yang was employed by the Department of Electrical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. His interests mainly focused on ultrafast all-optical switching devices employing semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) in optical telecommunication system. From 2004 to 2008 and 2008-2009, Dr. Yang has been employed by Photonics System Group, Tyndall National Institute and Bangor University, UK, both as a Senior Researcher. Dr. Yang has been employed as an Associate Professor in Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2009. He is currently investigating all-optical high-speed signal processing in fiber-optical communication systems, focused on applications of semiconductor optical amplifiers and optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission for passive optical networks (PONs).
