Asst Prof Yoo Seong Woo
Assistant Professor, School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering
Deputy Director, Centre for Optical Fibre Technology (COFT), School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)
Yoo Seongwoo received his BSc from Hanyang university, Seoul, Korea, in 1999 as a Baeknam scholarship holder and subsequently his MSc and PhD from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Gwangju, Korea, in 2001 and 2005, respectively for his study on special fibre design and fabrication. In 2004, he joined the Optoelectronic Research Centre (ORC), Univeristy of Southampton, UK, as a research assistant and, then as a post-doctoral research fellow in 2005. During his stay in the ORC, his research has centred on special fibre development for high power fibre lasers and amplifiers. In 2011, he joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological Univerisity.

W0/2017/086880: Lighting Apparatus And Method Of Forming the Same (2017)
Abstract: According to embodiments of the present invention, a lighting apparatus is provided. The lighting apparatus includes at least one light source configured to provide a source light, an optical waveguide optically coupled to the at least one light source, the optical waveguide having at least one input region through which the source light enters the optical waveguide for propagation within the optical waveguide, and a plurality of light interacting structures arranged within the optical waveguide, the plurality of light interacting structures adapted to interact with the source light to provide an illumination light emitted from the optical waveguide to an ambient environment, wherein a concentration of the plurality of light interacting structures increases, along a length portion of the optical waveguide, in a direction away from the at least one input region.
