Robert Karlicek Jr is Director of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA. Bob has been director of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center (ERC) since January 2010. He worked for more than 25 years in research, development, and manufacturing of opto-electronic devices with industry leaders including AT&T Bell Labs, EMCORE, General Electric, Gore Photonics, and Microsemi. He has authored and co-authored more than 40 journal papers, and holds 24 U.S. patents for LED and lighting devices ranging from LED packaging designs to LEDs with novel LED interconnect architectures. He is a member of IEEE, the Optical Society of America (OSA), American Chemical Society (ACS), and Radtech.
Ching-Cherng Sun received his BS in electrophysics from National Chiao Tung University in 1988 and his Ph.D. in Optical Sciences, from National Central University (NCU), in Jan. 1993. In 1996, he joined the faculty of Department of Optics and Photonics at NCU, and have become a Chair Professor since 2013. He founded the Institute of Lighting and Display in NCU, which is the first lighting-related institute in Taiwan. He is the Director of Optical Sciences Center at NCU currently. Professor Sun has published more than 140 journal papers, and held more than 60 patents. He is a Fellow of The International Society of Optical Engineering (SPIE) and Optical Society of America (OSA). His research interests include LED optics, optical modeling for phosphor, lighting design, volume holography, holographic data storage, optical information processing, optical system and optical engineering.
Dr Georges Zissis is Professor and Deputy Director of LaPlaCE (Laboratory of Plasma and Energy Conversion) at Toulouse University, France. Georges Zissis graduated in 1986 from the Physics Department of the University of Crete (Greece) in general physics. He got his MSc and PhD in Plasma Science in 1987 and 1990 from Toulouse III University, France. He is responsible for the “High Intensity Light Sources” research team. Prof Zissis won in December 2006 the 1st Award of the International Electrotechnics Committee (IEC) Centenary Challenge for his work on normalization for urban lighting systems. He is currently deputy director of “LaPlaCE,” a joint laboratory between Toulouse 3 University, National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse and CNRS (French National Council of Research). LaPlaCE represents a task force of 300 researchers. He is Chairman of the European Union COST-529 “efficient lighting for the 21st century” network, which regroups more than 80 academic and industrial institutions from 20 European countries; Chairman of the Lighting and Displays technical committee (LDC) of IEEE-IAS; President of the Regional Branch of the French Illuminating Society (AFE) and National Secretary of the same organisation.
