Dr Yongmin Jung is a Principal Research Fellow at the ORC and has over 15 years of experience in the field of specialty optical fibres and optical amplifiers. Currently he leads the ORC research on Space Division Multiplexing (SDM) technology, in which he has achieved several world-first results including: i) the world’s first multimode erbium-doped fibre amplifier, ii) setting the GUINNESS world record on SDM transmission, iii) winning the EU HORIZON PRIZE for breaking the optical transmission barrier and iv) commercialization of SDM amplifier technology. As a result of the cutting-edge nature of his research, he has published 3 book chapters, 6 patents and more than 370 scientific papers and has a current H-index of 45. He was one of the originators of the hugely successful EU FP7 MODE-GAP project and EU Horizon2020 SAFARI project.
