Dr.Amirhossein Tehranchi’s research includes all-optical ultrafast signal processing using broadband wavelength conversion techniques based on the realization of engineered second-order nonlinearity, and third-order nonlinearity in engineered nano-waveguides; and stimulated Raman scattering in Kerr media using special pulses (e.g., Airy pulses) and its applications. His project currently focuses on the generation and dynamics of stimulated Brillouin scattering in resonators and its applications in communications and sensing.
Amir Tehranchi received the B.Sc. (1997) and M.Sc. (2000) degrees in Electrical Engineering from K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. In 2000, he joined the Iran Telecom Research Center as a faculty member, where he was involved in research on modulation instability and solitons in optical fibers, and design and fabrication of integrated optics for 6 years. In 2010, he received his Ph.D. degree (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering for working on broadband quasi-phase-matched wavelength conversion under the supervision of Prof. Raman Kashyap at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. In 2011-14, he was a post-doctoral fellow at INRS-EMT in Prof. Morandotti’s group, having received an FQRNT fellowship in the first rank. He has 2 patents and more than 70 publications.
