Research profile

Zizheng Cao is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His PhD research (funded by NWO project ‘SOWICI’) mainly focused on energy-efficient access/indoor optical networks empowered by integrated optics, low-complexity digital signal processing, and flexible optical network design. Zinzheng’s current research interests include modeling and design of integrated photonics circuits, microwave photonics, advanced DSP, and physical layer design of optical network.

Practical application examples include cascaded aperture optical receivers which overcome capacitance limitations inherent to traditional photodiode designs and can provide the basis for an indoor optical wireless communication system.

Academic background

Zizheng Cao received his BSc in electronic information science and technology from Hunan Normal University, Changsha, China, and his Master of Engineering on telecom engineering (awarded ‘Outstanding thesis of master degree’ of Hunan Province, 2010) from Hunan University, Changsha, China. In 2015, he obtained his PhD with highest honors from TU/e. Zizheng was also a student member of the IEEE Photonics Society.

Zizheng has published 15 first-author peer-reviewed IEEE/OSA journal articles, including an invited paper in IEEE JLT and an invited review in IEEE JQE and gave a series invited talks at international conferences such as PIERS2014, WOCC2016, ACP (2015/2017), PhotonicsWest 2017, and MWP2017. Currently, his research articles have been cited for 1162 times, with H-index of 17 and 'i10' factor of 31 (source: google scholar). He serves as an active reviewer for many top IEEE/OSA journals. He is a recipient of a Graduate Student Fellowship from the IEEE Photonics Society 2014. He holds two granted Chinese patents and one US provisional patent.
