Inwoong Kim is a member of research staff in Fujitsu Laboratories of America since 2007. His research focuses on optical networks and communications. He has contributed more than 80 papers to international journals and conferences. He is a member of IEEE Photonics Society.
He received a master’s degree in physics at KAIST, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, in 1993. He worked for Laser Application Group at Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials from 1993 to 1998. He joined Ultra-short Pulse Laser Lab in KAIST as a researcher in 1998.
He studied photonics and optical communications from 2000 to 2006 at CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics in University of Central Florida, and received a Ph. D. degree in optical engineering in 2006. He was awarded SPIE scholarship in 2005. He demonstrated ultra-fast all-optical clock recovery using multi-section gain-coupled DFB lasers. He also researched all-optical process, based on phase sensitive amplifier, for carrier recovery and regeneration of phase modulated optical signal. He worked on coherent optical communications as a postdoctoral fellow at CREOL from 2006 to 2007.
