Dagenais Named Fellow of IEEE
Professor Mario Dagenais has been elected as a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology. He was recognized for his contributions to photon correlation, semiconductor devices, and integration technologies.
Professor Dagenais' research interests are in the area of energy conversion, photovoltaics, green LEDs, III-V integrated opto-electronics, nanotechnology, and bio-sensing. Recently, he has been interested in nanophotonics and plasmonics for the sub-wavelength confinement of light and in glycobiology for the development of new, ultra-sensitive individual and two-dimensional arrays of optical bio-sensors. He also has interest in high power semiconductor laser sources, MIR laser sources, semiconductor optical amplifiers, superluminescent LEDs, detectors, modulators, optical switches, wavelength-division multiplexed optoelectronics components, and in the integration of these components. Prof. Dagenais has more than 300 archival and conference presentations. He is an associate editor of IEEE Photonics Journal. He is also a fellow of the Optical Society of America.
IEEE fellows are an elite group from around the globe. The grade of fellow recognizes unusual distinction in the profession and is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The accomplishments that are honored have contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society. The IEEE looks to the Fellows for guidance and leadership as the world of electrical and electronic technology continues to evolve.
