t: 0121 204 3548

I joined the Photonics Research Group in the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Aston University in 1994, and was appointed to a Professorship in 2005. During my 15 years at Aston University, I have established an extensive research track record in the area of advanced fibre grating technologies and applications and published over 300 papers in peer-review international journals and conferences, contributed a chapter to a book on Fiber Optic Sensors (CRC Press) and been an inventor of 7 patents. I have served as programme committee member and chair for several international conferences and been regularly reviewing for a range of journals in photonics. Since I joined Aston, I have also been involved in running a large number of research programmes, including 4 LINK, 4 EPSRC, 2 EU, 2 MoD, and 2 US (BAE SYSTEMS and the US Airforce). My research interests and expertise extend from photonic devices to a wide range of applications in optical communications, smart sensing and recently to bio-photonics.

Prior to joining Aston, I worked towards my Ph.D and subsequently as a post-doc in the field of passive and active planar optical waveguides and waveguiding lasers at Sussex University, UK, and published 35 papers and co-authored a book entitled Optical Effect of Ion Implantation (Cambridge University Press).

Professor Lin Zhang is (or has formerly been) affiliated with Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies and Aston University.
