Further information

Dr Changhai Wang received his BSc degree in Semiconductor Physics and Devices from Jilin University, Changchun, China, in 1985. He received an MSc degree in Optoelectronic and Laser Devices and a PhD degree in all-optical switching devices, both from Heriot-Watt University in 1988 and 1991 respectively. He was a research associate between 1991 and 1997 at Heriot-Watt University and conducted research in nonlinear optical and photochromic materials, electro-optic polymers and modulators, and optical gas sensors. Dr Wang held a Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise Fellowship in Optoelectronics in 1997/1998 developing optical gas sensors using infrared semiconductor emitters and detectors. He then joined Imperial College, London, to develop a laser assisted method for flip chip assembly. In 2000 he returned to Heriot-Watt University to take up a lecturer position in microsystem technology. His current research interests include novel methods for fabrication, interconnection, integration and packaging of microelectronic devices, MEMS, sensors, and RF and microfluidic devices.
