Jungsang Kim, Professor
Jungsang Kim leads the Multifunctional Integrated Systems Technology group at Duke University. His main area of current research is quantum information sciences, where his group uses trapped atomic ions and a range of photonics technologies in an effort to construct a scalable quantum information processors and quantum communication networks. His research focuses on introduction of new technologies, such as micro fabricated ion traps, optical micro-electromechanical systems, advanced single photon detectors, compact cryogenics and vacuum technologies, towards a functional integration of quantum information processing systems.
In 1999, he joined Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies in Murray Hill, New Jersey. When moving to Bell Labs, he decided to move to a different field of research. He started working on Micro-Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) technology, and contributed to the team building the world's first large-scale all-optical switch using MEMS technology. He helped commercialize Lucent's LambdaRouter All-Optical Switch, and led a team to develop the world's largest all-optical switch that features more than 1,000 input and output ports.
In 2002, he decided to make another jump in the research area, and started working on a technology that will help dramatically improve the coverage of wireless networks inside buildings. He led a team of researchers at Bell Labs to develop RadioStar technology, which enables cost-effective coverage enhancement of CDMA network into buildings. The innovations that enabled RadioStar technology have the potential to dramatically modify the way base transceiver stations for the wireless communication systems are built.
