Resume of Career
Aaron H.P. Ho received his BEng and PhD. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the University of Nottingham in 1986 and 1990 respectively. His PhD thesis was on interdiffusion of semiconductor superlattices.
During 1990-1992, he was a post-doctoral research fellow in the University of Leeds working on the growth and characterization of ferromagnetic superlattices. He then returned to University of Nottingham to participate in an industrial research project on laser ultrasound evaluation of engineering ceramics using laser interferometers.
In 1994, he joined the Fiber Optics Components Operation of Hewlett-Packard as a senior process engineer in the semiconductor laser device fabrication division. He returned to Hong Kong to take up a lecturing position in the Department of Physics and Materials Science, City University of Hong Kong in 1996. He joined The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2002.
His research interests include nano-materials for photonic and sensor applications, surface plasmon resonance biosensors, nanophotonics, optical instrumentation and lab-on-a-disc. He has published over 220 journal/conference/book chapter articles, 3 US and 5 Chinese patents.
