Recently, one of our post-doctoral fellows has had their article featured by the Optica Publishing Group under their Spotlight in Optics page. Dr. Chih-Hsien Cheng (seen left), who joined the lab in late 2021, has been a great addition to the team and his featured paper entitled Ultrafast 2 × 2 green micro-LED array for optical wireless communication beyond 5  Gbit/s is a must-read. In addition to the above, he has been selected by The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in Japan for the Leading Initiative for Excellent Young Researcher award in 2021. Congratulations Dr. Cheng!
