Welcome three OEA new Editors

It is our great honor to welcome Professor John H. Marsh from University of Glasgow, UK, Professor Wolfgang Kautek from University of Vienna, Austria, and Professor Luca Razzari from the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), Canada, as new editors for Opto-Electronic Advances (OEA). So far we have a total of 26 outstanding experts from 13 countries or regions on OEA Editorial Board. 

Prof. John H. Marsh,
University of Glasgow, UK


Prof. John H. Marsh is full Professor of Optoelectronic Systems, University of Glasgow, as well as the Dean of Transnational Education responsible for the University of Glasgow UESTC partnership. His formal education took place at the Universities of Cambridge (BA), Liverpool (MEng) and Sheffield (PhD). 
    He moved to the University of Glasgow in 1986, where he established an internationally leading research group addressing linear and nonlinear integrated optoelectronic systems. After co-founding Intense Ltd in 2000, he was seconded to the Company until 2009 and served as a Board Director until 2011. During this time, Intense developed the world’s most advanced integrated laser systems, bringing monolithic laser arrays together with electronic ASICs and optics for precise energy delivery in a range of applications from printing to material processing. He returned to the University of Glasgow full-time in 2009. He was Head of the School of Engineering from 2010-2016, leading the unification of the four departments of the former Faculty of Engineering into a single School.
    Prof. John H. Marsh has been active in professional societies, particularly the IEEE. After serving as a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (including two terms as a Vice-President), he was elected President in 2008 and 2009. During this period the Society changed its name to the IEEE Photonics Society. He has served on numerous other IEEE committees, including the Board of Governors of the IEEE Technology Management Council in 2012 and 2013.

Prof. Wolfgang Kautek, 
University of Vienna, Austria

Professor Wolfgang Kautek holds a diploma in chemical engineering from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, and a doctoral degree from the University of Technology Berlin, Germany. He served (1976-1987) as a research scientist at the University of Kentucky, USA, at the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck-Society, Berlin, at the IBM San Jose Research Laboratory, California, and the Siemens Research Center, Erlangen, Germany. From 1988, he was head of the Laboratory for Thin Film Technology of the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, Berlin, and Adjunct Professor at the Free University Berlin, Germany. Since 2004, he is full-professor at the Department of Physical Chemistry of the University of Vienna. In 2017, he served as Russell Severance Springer Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of California, Berkeley. He published more than 230 scientific publications and 4 patents. As chairman of the Division of Physical Chemistry in the European Chemical Society (EuCheMS), as president of the scientific board of the Austrian Research Association (OeFG), and president of the Erwin Schrödinger Society for Nanosciences he has been researching in the area of nanotechnology and laser processing of interfaces with special focus on the NLO interaction of ultrashort laser pulses with mater, aperture-free scanning nearfield optical nanolithography, femto- and bioelectrochemistry, and laser cleaning of cultural heritage artefacts.

Prof. Luca Razzari, 
Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, Canada

Prof. Luca Razzari received his PhD degree from the University of Pavia, Italy, in Electronic Engineering in 2004. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique. He is Senior Member of the Optical Society (OSA).

    He has authored over 250 journal publications and conference presentations, including over 26 invited conference talks and 66 research papers in refereed journals. In particular, he published several articles in top journals, such as Nature Photonics, Nature Communications, Science Advances, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, and Physical Review Letters.

    His scientific activity has been mainly focused on the numerical modeling and the experimental investigation of materials, schemes and processes within the broad area of optics & photonics. Besides several works aimed at direct applications in fields like optical telecommunications and integrated photonics, he has opened up his interests towards more fundamental investigations regarding radiation-matter interaction. In this context, he has extensively used time- and frequency-resolved spectroscopic techniques, from the visible to the terahertz frequency range. He has also gained expertise in nanoplasmonics and metamaterials, working on the design and optical characterization of nano-devices for electromagnetic near-field manipulation, enhanced spectroscopy, and strong radiation-matter coupling.
