Hongzhi YANG defended his Ph.D thesis

Research on a high-precision RF-modulated lidar using a frequency-shifted feedback laser

Hongzhi has defended his thesis on June 4th, 2019, at the Beijing Institut of Technology (BIT). Enrolled at BIT under the supervision of Prof. Changming ZHAO, he had spent one full year at Institut FOTON in Rennes to work on frequency-shifting loops, under the supervision of Prof. Marc BRUNEL. Hongzhi has presented his results on the realization of radio-frequency modulated optical sources under various configurations, as well as applications of such lasers to lidar-radar-type remote sensing, including distance and velocity measurements. Lucky strike, an article he had submitted to Optics Express was accepted for publication on the very morning of his defense.
