Jan Stake is Professor in Terahertz Electronics and is the Head of the Terahertz and Millimetre Wave Laboratory at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience. He was born in Uddevalla, Sweden, in 1971 and received the degrees of M.Sc. in electrical engineering and Ph.D. in microwave electronics from Chalmers University of Technology in 1994 and 1999, respectively.
His research involves several aspects of terahertz techniques, science, and applications. The main goal is to create efficient and integrated components for the part of the electromagnetic spectrum (ca. 0.3-10 THz), where optical and microwave techniques meet, as well as explore new applications using terahertz waves. This includes graphene electronics, high frequency semiconductor devices, submillimetre wave measurement techniques (“THz metrology”), and terahertz techniques in biology and medicine.
Jan Stake has extensive experience from research supervision and research leadership in projects with academic, institutes and industry. From 2016 to 2018, Prof. Stake served as Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology. He teaches in the Department’s PhD School and in several courses in the Wireless, Photonics and Space Engineering programme.
