Ming Han received his BS and MS degrees in electronic engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing China, in 1998 and 2000, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Blacksburg, Virginia, in 2006. From 2006 to 2008, he stayed at Virginia Tech working as a Research Associate in the Center for Photonics Technology. In 2008, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska, as an Assistant Professor.
His research interests include optical biological and chemical sensing, optical measurement under harsh environment, fully or quasi-distributed fiber-optic sensors, micro/nano photonic devices and structures. His recent research focuses on developing pressure sensors for applications involving extreme temperatures and novel biosensors and lasers based on photonic crystal fibers.
