Niloy K. Dutta received his MS and PhD in Physics from Cornell University in 1976 and 1978 respectively. He received his BSc (Honours) and MSc in Physics from St. Stephen’s College, New Delhi in 1972 and 1974 respectively. Since 1997 he has been a Professor of Physics at the University of Connecticut. Prior to that from 1990 to 1997 he was Head of Optoelectronic Device Research Department at Bell Laboratories at Murray Hill, NJ.
In 1976 he conducted the first experiments on intracavity absorption spectroscopy using a tunable infrared laser. In 1978 he reported the first observation of resonant photoexcited charge transfer.
He joined Bell Laboratories in 1979 where he has made numerous contributions to the research and development of semiconductor lasers for lightwave transmission systems. His many significant research accomplishments include explanation of the high temperature performance of long wavelength semiconductor lasers, first InGaAsP quantum well laser, first tunable Bragg reflector laser, first 10 Gb/s lightwave transmission field experiment, first coherent transmission field experiment, and two dimensional optical interconnection systems.
He joined the University of Connecticut in 1997 as Professor of Physics. His current research programs include high speed optical transmission, optical networks, photonic logic devices and circuits, fiber lasers and optical coherence tomography.
He has published over 360 papers and 20 review chapters on semiconductor lasers, optical amplifiers, coherent transmission systems, optoelectronic integration, device physics and lightwave telecommunication system experiments. He has co-authored books on "Long Wavelength Semiconductor Lasers "(1986), “Semiconductor Lasers” (1992), “Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers” (2006), and, “Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers” 2nd. edition (2013) . He has edited and authored chapters in: “ Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers” (2000), “ WDM Technologies – Active Optical Components” (2003),“WDM Technologies – Passive Optical Components” (2004)and, “WDM Technologies – Optical Networks” (2005).
He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEEE), the Optical Society of America and the International Society of Optical Engineers (SPIE). He received the LEOS Distinguished Lecturer Award in 1995. He is a Fellow of Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering.
