Yasuhiro Matsui received the bachelor's degree in physics from Kyoto University, Japan and joined the Oki Electric Research Laboratory in 1988. He engaged in early developed of high-speed directly modulated lasers (DML), narrow-linewidth DBR lasers, Terahertz mode-locked lasers, electro-absorption modulators, and high-power lasers. From 1996 to 2000, he was with the Femtosecond Technology Research Association (FESTA), Tsukuba, Japan, where he worked on Raman-soliton femtosecond pulse generation in non-linear fibers. He received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Tokyo, Japan, in 2000. In 2000, he joined CoreTek/Nortel Networks in Massachusetts, US, and established the polarization control scheme for a MEMS-tunable VCSEL. In 2002, he co-founded AZNA LLC and co-invented the chirp-managed directly modulated laser (CML). After the acquisition of AZNA by Finisar in 2007, he has been developing high-speed DML designed for 100 GHz bandwidth. He is also an inventor of thermally tunable narrow-linewidth lasers in production at Finisar. Currently, he is with II–VI through the acquisition of Finisar in 2019. He has authored/co-authored 140 papers, a book chapter, and numerous patents in the US and Japan. He is the outstanding reviewer of 2016 at IEEE/OSA.
He was a visiting professor at Tohoku University in 2018-2019, and a sub-committee member for OFC 2018-2020, OFC sub-committee chair in 2021, CLEO/Pacific Rim subcommittee in 2022.
For JLT he is handling submissions on the following topics:
• Active devices on III-V
• Nonlinear fiber phenomena
