Sorin P. Voinigescu received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Toronto, Canada, in 1994.
Between 1994 and 2002 he was first with Nortel Networks and later with Quake Technologies in Ottawa, Canada, where he was responsible for projects in high-frequency characterization and statistical scalable compact model development for Si, SiGe, and III-V devices. He also conducted research on wireless and optical fiber building blocks and transceivers in these technologies. In 2002 he joined the University of Toronto, where he is a full Professor. His research and teaching interests focus on atomic-scale semiconductor devices and their application in integrated circuits at frequencies beyond 300 GHz. In 2008-2009 he spent a sabbatical year at Fujitsu Laboratories of America, Sunnyvale, CA, USA. He is currently on sabbatical leave at NTT's Device Research Laboratories in Atsugi, Japan, exploring technologies and circuits for 128GBaud fiberoptic systems.
Dr. Voinigescu is a member of the ITRS RF/AMS Committee and of the TPC of the IEEE BCTM. From 2003 to 2013 he served on the TPC and ExCOM of the IEEE CSICS. He received NORTEL’s President Award for Innovation in 1996 and in 2013 he was recognized with the ITAC Lifetime Career Award for his contributions to the Canadian Semiconductor Industry.
