Dr Yongmin Jung joined Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton in U.K. in 2008 and is currently a Principal Research Fellow (2018~). He received the B.S. degree in Physics in 2003 from Chung-Ang University (top honor at graduation), Korea and the M.S. and Ph. D degree in engineering of information and communications from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), Korea, in 2004 and 2008, respectively.

His main research interests are the “Multicore (or multimode) fibre technologies for next generation optical communications, sensors and lasers”. Recently he has established the main key technologies and has presented several WORLD FIRST EXPERIMENTAL DEMONSTRATIONS including: i) the world’s first multimode erbium-doped fibre amplifier, ii) setting the GUINNESS world record on multimode fibre transmission, iii) winning the EU HORIZON PRIZE for breaking the optical transmission barrier and iv) commercialization of multimode/multicore fibre amplifier technology. 

Due to the cutting edge nature of his research and the interest it has generated excellent academic performance, publishing more than 130 papers in international journals and 220 in conference proceedings as well as 60 in high profile postdeadline/invited papers (H-INDEX=47).
