Tolga Tekin received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the Technical University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, in 2004. He was a Research Scientist with the Optical Signal Processing Department, Fraunhofer HHI, where he was engaged in advanced research on optical signal processing, 3R-regeneration, all-optical switching, clock recovery, and integrated optics. He was a Postdoctoral Researcher on components for O-CDMA and terabit routers with the University of California. He worked at Teles AG on phased-array antennas and their components for skyDSL. At the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) and at Technical University of Berlin, he then led projects on microsystems, 3-D heterogeneous integration, optical interconnects and silicon photonics packaging. He is engaged in photonic integrated system-in-package, millimeter-wave photonics, photonic interconnects and 5G research activities. He is group manager of Photonics and Plasmonics Systems in the System Integration and Interconnection Technologies Department at Fraunhofer IZM. He is coordinator of European flagship project 'PhoxTroT' on optical interconnects for data centers. He is Senior Member of IEEE and co-chair of 'Photonics - Communication, Sensing, Lighting' Technical Committee in the IEEE Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society.
