Congratulations to Professor Feng and all past and current members of the HSIC group for this award! Overall, the HSIC group has been awarded 16 patents and has published over 50 papers on the light-emitting transistor and transistor laser.
Professor Feng would like to thank all former and current HSIC group members for their efforts.
Congratulations to Mr. Mong-Kai Wu for his paper, “Voltage modulation of a vertical cavity transistor laser via intra-cavity photon-assisted tunneling,” which was placed on the cover of Volume 101, Issue 8 of Applied Physics Letters.
Congratulations to Dr. Donald Cheng for winning Best Student Paper at CSMANTECH 2011 for his paper titled, “Type-II DHBTs Microwave Characterization and Metallization Issues”. This paper described the problem of emitter-to-base shorts during the fabrication of Type-II submicron DHBTs. He presented designs of experiment to identify the problem, as well as the solution to the [...]
Two great new articles on the transistor laser were published this month!
From Compound Semiconductor: “The Transistor Laser: A Radical, Revolutionary Device”
and from Optics and Photonics News: “The Metamorphosis of a Transistor into a Laser”
Professor Feng gave an invited lecture on the transistor laser at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology’s Institute for Advanced Study. He covers the history of its invention, the basic physics of operation, current research results, and future expectations for the novel device.

Milton receives a plaque commemorating the creation of the Milton Feng Endowed Scholarhship
At Professor Feng’s 60th birthday party on July 16th, 2010, Richard Chan unveiled the Milton Feng Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship was formed through contributions by friends, colleagues, and former students. It was a fitting end to an evening of symposium-style talks, [...]
After discovering a flaw in the 160-year-old circuit theory, Han Wui Then’s Transistor Laser research has revised Kirchoff’s current law to account for optical generation/recombination. His research enables a simple and intuitive way to view the relationship between electrons and photons in direct semiconductors.
