Aasmund Sudbø

Since January, 1995, Aasmund Sudbø has been professor at the University of Oslo, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, associated with the Department of Physics and UNIK, the University Graduate Center at Kjeller. From 2006 to 2009 he worked (part-time) at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment in the Land and Air Systems Division. He was the manager of the research program Nanostructures for Optics, he worked with SINTEF on a research project in diffractive optics, managed by Tomra ASA, both funded by The Research Council of Norway. He works with the Institute of Energy Research (IFE) on solar cells. He was also the manager of the research program "MOEMS and MEMS - Micro-opto-electromechanical and Micro-electromechanical Systems" in the Department of Physics at the University of Oslo.

Aasmund Sudbø was a member of the organizing committee of the conference Northern Optics 2006, 14-16 June 2006, Bergen, Norway. He has worked extensively with Telenor on optical fiber communication, as a full-time employee from 1981 through 1994, and part-time until 2005. From 1986 through 1994 he was adjunct professor (part time) in the Department of Physics, at the University of Oslo. He has been a member of the program committee of ECOC, the annual European Conference on Optical Communication. He was program chair for ECOC'96 in Oslo, and a member of the program committee of the International Conference on Integrated Optics and Optical Fiber Communication (OFC/IOOC) in 1999.

Aasmund Sudbø was a Visiting Scholar from 2009 to 2010 at Edward E Ginzton Laboratory at Stanford University, working with Professor Olav Solgaard on applications of photonic crystals, and also from 2002 to 2003, when he worked with Prof. Solgaard on photonic crystals for optical spectroscopy applications. He was a Visiting Scientist at Bell Laboratories, New Jersey, 1988-89, working on integrated optics and optoelectronics. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at IBM Research Labs, New York, 1979-81, working on laser spectroscopy. His Ph.D. thesis was on laser-induced dissociation of molecules, in the Physics and Chemistry Departments of the University of California in Berkeley, 1975-79. He graduated in physics from Norges Tekniske Høgskole in Trondheim, Norway, 1975.
