Photonics researcher from KIT focuses on hybrid integration methods to combine silicon waveguides with organic materials
Christian Koos’ work focuses on hybrid integration methods to combine silicon waveguides with organic materials.
This year’s one million euro Alfried Krupp Prize for Young University Teachers has been awarded to Professor Christian Koos of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany. The board of trustees of the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation decided in favor of the 34-year-old engineer, who conducts research into and teaches on photonic communication technology. Koos won over 65 other young scientists who had been proposed for the prize.
At the Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics (IPQ) and at the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT) of KIT, Koos studies nanophotonic components, by means of which communication processes can be accelerated and their energy efficiency enhanced.
