Chenhui Li is a postdoctoral researcher within the Department of Applied Physics, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research focuses on the heterogeneous and hybrid integration of photonic devices. He has been working on the EU-FP7-COSIGN and EU-H2020-PASSION projects to develop silicon platforms for laser integration. He is currently working on the NWO-Chaotic MEMS project and focus on the InP membrane spectrometers. Chenhui has co-authored more than 20 papers in leading peer-reviewed journals and conferences.

I want to realize versatile functionalities on a silicon wafer by heterogeneous integration.


Chenhui Li received the B. S. degree (2011) and MSc. Degree (2014) in Applied Physics. The topic of his master thesis was “researches on position-sensitive silicon photon multiplier (PS-SiPM).” In 2014, he joined the Electro-optical Communications (ECO) group to start working towards a Ph.D. in TU/e. His research includes chip-to-chip optical interconnects and 2.5D, 3D integration technology, aiming at high bandwidth density optical transceivers for hyper-scale data center applications. Chenhui obtained the Ph.D. degree Cum Laude in 2018. Chenhui is currently a postdoc within the Photonics and Semiconductor Nanophysics (PSN) group.
