Personal Profile

Prof. Xun Luo was born in Sichuan, China. He received B.E. degree and Ph.D. degree (both with highest honors) in electronic engineering from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), Chengdu, China, in 2005 and 2011, respectively.

During the past 18 years, Prof. Luo guided some leading & interesting industrial and academic R&D projects more than 30M US$, and he has diverse experience in microelectronics and communication systems. From 2002 to 2005, he was with Chengdu Sine Science and Technology Ltd., where he led the 0.2-20 GHz front-end R&D project. From 2005 to 2006, he was with Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (SAST) for space communication R&D. In 2007, he was with Philips Research East-Asia, Shanghai, and involved in research of radio front-end for multi-mode/multi-card mobile systems. From 2010 to 2013, Prof. Luo was with the Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., as the General Manager to guide the microwave/mm-wave mobile & backhaul R&D projects for LTE+ & 5G communication with successful commercial products. Before joined UESTC, he was Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in Department of Microelectronics, Delft University of Technology (TUDelft). Since June 2015, he has joined UESTC as Full Professor & Executive Director in Center for Integrated Circuits (CIC), UESTC. Since March 2020, he founded and has been appointed as the Head of  the Center for Advanced Semiconductor and Integrated Micro-System (ASIS), UESTC. He has published about 100 IEEE journal and conference papers, and holds 39 granted patents. His research interests include the RF/microwave/mm-wave integrated circuits, multiple-resonance THz modules, reconfigurable passive circuits, smart antennas with sensor network, artificial-intelligence microsystems, multi-function backhaul/wireless application, and system in package.

Prof. Luo was bestowed by China as recipients of The China Overseas Chinese Contribution Award in 2016. Under his leadership, the Center for ASIS was bestowed by UESTC as recipents of the UESTC Outstanding Team for Teaching and Education Award in 2021 and the UESTC Excellent Team for Postgraduate Supervision Award in 2021. He also won the UESTC Distinguished Innovation and Teaching Award in 2018, and the UESTC Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Promotion Award in 2016. He was recipients of the 2008 Huawei Scholarship, 2009 Intel Fellowship, 2009 Rohde & Schwarz Scholarship, and 2010 Mediatek Scholarship, respectively. During the period in Huawei, he was recipients of 2011 Huawei Transmission Network R&D Advanced Tech. Achievement Award (1st place), Huawei Distinguished Young Engineer Award in 2011 and 2012, and Huawei President Award in 2013, respectively. He was the recipient of 2013 Sichuan Province Outstanding Doctoral Dissertations Award, China. His research group Big-Data Electronics & Advanced Micro-System Lab (BEAM X-LAB) has won a number of best paper awards, design competition awards, and honorable international scholarships, including the IEEE RFIC Best Student Paper Award in 2021, IEEE IWS Best Student Paper Award in 2015 and 2018, IEEE RFIT Best Student Paper Award in 2016 and 2019, IEEE RFIT Best Student Design Competition Award in 2016, IEEE IMS Best Student Design Competition Award from 2017 to 2019, IEEE MTT-Society Undergraduate/Pre-Graduate Scholarship Award in 2017, 2020, and 2021, IEEE MTT-Society Graduate Fellowship Award in 2018, 2020, and 2021, IEEE SSC-Society Predoctoral Achievement Award in 2021, and 2020-2021 Chinese Institute of Electronics Outstanding Scholarship Award.

Prof. Luo is an IEEE Senior Member since June 2012. He is Track Editor of IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, and is also an Associate Editor of IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation. He serves on the Technical Program Committees of IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS), IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC), and IEEE International Wireless Symposium (IWS). He is also the IEEE MTT-Society Technical Committee Member of MTT-4 on Microwave Passive Components and Transmission Line Structures, MTT-5 on Filters, and MTT-23 on Wireless Communications.
