Dr Chin-Pang Liu profile picture
  • Associate Professor
  • Dept of Electronic & Electrical Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Dr. Chin-Pang Liu received the First-Class B.Eng. (Hons.) Degree and the Ph.D. Degree in electronic and electrical engineering from University College London (UCL), London, U.K., in 1994 and 2000, respectively. His Ph.D. research topic was optoelectronic mixing in heterojunction bipolar transistors. He worked for JVC in Hong Kong from 1994 to 1995 as project coordinator. He was a Research Fellow from 2000 to 2009 and is now an Associate Professor at UCL.

During his undergraduate and postgraduate years, he won an IEE Institution Prize in 1994, an Overseas Research Students Award in 1995 and the Best Student Presentation (Devices, Components and Techniques) at the 1999 IEEE International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics in Melbourne, Australia.

Dr. Liu served on the technical program committees for the 2008 International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics and the Annual Meetings of the IEEE Photonics Society in 2009 and 2010. He is also a regular reviewer for the IET Optoelectronics, the IEEE Photonics Technology Letters and the Journal of Lightwave Technology.

Dr. Liu is currently the Admissions Director and UCL Site Director of the UCL-Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Connected Electronic and Photonic Systems (CEPS).

Research Summary

Research interests are focused on the following areas:

  • Design, fabrication and characterisation of advanced photonic devices, in particular, the Asymmetric Fabry-Perot modulator (AFPM) which can be used as both a light intensity modulator and a photodetector in a single device.
  • Radio-over-fibre systems and techniques. Novel and low-cost transmission techniques for wireless multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) signal over fibre. Wireless signal processing using FPGA.
  • Microwave photonics. 
  • Real-time indoor location systems using active RFID tags, optical fibres and associated signal processing techniques.
  • Novel photonic sampling techniques (funded by EPSRC EP/M021939/1)
