Qiang Wu

Dr. Qiang Wu is an Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics, Physics & Electrical Engineering, Northumbria University at Newcastle. He is also an adjunct professor in Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. Before joining Northumbria University, he was a Stokes Lecturer with the Photonics Research Centre, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland.

He was a Senior Research Associate with the Optoelectronics Research Centre, City University of Hong Kong, from 2004 to 2006, where he was involved in research on polymer optical waveguides. He was a Research Associate with the Applied Optics and Photonics Group, Heriot-Watt University, from 2006 to 2008, where he was involved in research on laser joining in micromanufacturing. He is a committee member of Holography and Optical Information Processing committee, The Chinese Optical Society. He is an Editorial Board member of Scientific Reports (Nature Group, 2016 Impact Factor 4.259) and Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal (2016 Impact Factor 2.512).

His current research interest lies in Photonics including the design and fabrication of fibre Bragg grating devices for sensing and optical communications; hetero-core fibre structures for novel fibre optical couplers and sensors; nonlinear effects in photonic crystal fibre, microsphere, nanofibres, visible light communication and its application for sensing, and surface plasmon resonant for highly integrated nanophotonics devices and their applications for biosensing. He has authored or co-authored more than 200 articles in academic journals and international conferences and holds three patents. He has been highlighted and interviewed by the journal Electronics Letters with the objective of understanding the background and rationale for his research on singlemode-multimode-singlemode fibre structures.
