Welcome to San Diego, California!

Jeff Kash

Columbia University, USA

After receiving a PhD from UC Berkeley in physics, Dr. Kash joined IBM Research in 1981, initially studying femtosecond electron and exciton dynamics in semiconductors.  In 1995, Dr. Kash co-invented Picosecond Imaging Circuit Analysis, an optical technique which is used today to debug advanced CMOS ICs.  From 2000 - 2011, Dr. Kash focused on the use of optical interconnects in next and future generations of supercomputers, directing DARPA-sponsored IBM programs for chip-to-chip optical interconnects and nanophotonic optical switches.  In 2011, Dr. Kash moved to Columbia University, where he continues to direct research programs in optics.  Dr. Kash has published over 150 papers in major technical journals, holds 23 patents, and is a fellow of both the APS and IEEE.  Dr. Kash serves as the Vice President for Membership for the IEEE Photonics Society.
