About the Authors

Ying Fu leads a biophotonics group at the Division of Theoretical Chemistry and Biology, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, focusing on semiconductor nanotechnologies of Si/Ge, III-V and II-VI nanoscale electronic and photonic devices and systems for applications in bio and medical fields. He is an active educator and researcher in the field and has published more than 200 papers.

Min Qiu joined the Department of Microelectronics and Applied Physics at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, as an assistant professor. He became an associate professor in 2005 and a full professor (Professor of Photonics) in 2009. Prof. Qiu holds a Senior Researcher Fellowship from the Swedish Research Council. Currently, he leads the nanophotonics group at KTH.
