Professor Benjamin Eggleton is an ARC Laureate Fellow and Professor of Physics at the University of Sydney, Director of the ARC Centre for Ultrahigh-Bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS), and Director of the Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS) at the University of Sydney. He obtained the Bachelor's degree (with honors) in Science and the Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Sydney, Sydney, N.S.W., Australia, in 1992 and 1996, respectively.
In 1996, he joined Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies as a Postdoctoral Member of Staff, and was then transferred to the Department of Optical Fiber Research. In 2000, he was promoted to Research Director within the Specialty Fiber Business Division of Bell Laboratories, where he was engaged in forward-looking research supporting Lucent Technologies business in optical fiber devices.
Eggleton has made pioneering contributions to nonlinear optics and all-optical signal processing with recent breakthrough achievements in the nonlinear optics of periodic media, slow-light in photonic crystals and ultrafast planar waveguide nonlinear optics. His research into new classes of nonlinear waveguides has created a new paradigm for photonic chip based ultrafast optical signal processing and his group holds various world records.
