iPL Ph.D. student Bowen Song received a Best Paper Award at the Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP) held in Guangzhou, China on November 10-13, 2017. The award was sponsored by the Optical Society of America (OSA) and was presented to Bowen by OSA president Eric Mazur. This is a well-deserved recognition for the development of 3D hybrid silicon lasers, which have demonstrated superior thermal performance while maintaining fabrication simplicity and robustness. Congratulations to Bowen and his co-authors Sergio Pinna (UCSB iPL), Sasa Ristic (McGill University), and Prof. Klamkin (UCSB iPL)!
