A Brief Biography


Prof. Dayan Ban is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He spent his sabbatical leave at the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT, cambridge, MA, USA in 2009 as a visiting scientist. He was a research staff at the Institute for Microstructural Sciences of National Research Council, Ottawa, Canada, before joining the University of Waterloo in 2005. He was a visiting scientist in 2001-2002 at Nortel, where he and his colleagues developed and applied novel scanning probe microscopy techniques. His current research interests include Optoelectronics, semiconductor quantum devices, terahertz quantum cascade lasers, infrared optical upconversion devices, Infrared imaging devices, scanning probe microscopy, nanotechnology and nanofabrication.

Dayan Ban earned B.A. Sc., M.A.Sc degrees at the University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, China in 1993 and 1995, respectively and Ph. D. degree at the University of Toronto in 2003.
