As the 2007 recipient of the Grace Anderson Research Fellowship, Li will be designing an optical interleaver which packs a large number of signals with different wavelengths for transmission in optical communication networks and then unpacks the signals at the receiving end. In addition to potentially significant improvements in performance and functionality for optical networks, the research project will provide a new method for design optimization of GTE-based optical devices. Li is a key faculty member in Laurier's unique undergraduate Photonics program.
