PeterDe Heyn
Peter De Heyn received the masters degree in photonics engineering from Ghent University and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Belgium in 2009. He is now working towards a PhD degree in the Photonics Research Group of Ghent University-IMEC, Belgium where he investigates the total heterogeneous integration of an all-optical packet switching device. His work focuses currently on ultra-dense wavelength demultiplexers with high-performance waveguide photodiodes. Part of his work is supported by the FP7-BOOM project of the European Union.

As of January 2014 working as Integrated Silicon Photonics R&D Engineer at imec.
