Toshio Morioka received the BE degree in Applied Physics from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan in 1982, the MS degree in Optical Sciences from the Optical Sciences Center, the University of Arizona, USA in 1984, and the MS and Ph.D. degrees in Physics and Applied Physics from Waseda University in 1985 and 1995, respectively. He joined Yokosuka Electrical Communication Laboratory of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) in 1985. He was with the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Japan from 2005 to 2008. Since 2011, he has been with the High-Speed Optical Communications Group, DTU Fotonik and has been a full professor since 2013. He received IEE Electronics Letters Premium Award in 1997 for his first Tbit/s optical transmission. He is a fellow of OSA (Optical Society of America) and IEICE (Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers of Japan) and a member of the IEEE Photonics Society/Communications Society. He was program and general cochair of OSA topical meeting on Nonlinear Guided Waves and Their Applications in 1995 and 1996, respectively. He served as Editor-in-chief of the IEICE Transactions on Communications in 2005-2006. He holds 60 granted patents. He has been engaged in various pioneering research on ultrafast and high-capacity transmission technologies including ultrafast all-optical TDM demultiplexing in 1987, supercontinuum (SC) WDM sources in 1993, the first 1 Tbit/s (100 Gbit/s x 10 ch) transmission in 1996, and the first 1 Pbit/s transmission in 2012.
For JLT he is handling submissions on the following topics:
- Space-division multiplexing
- High-capacity transmission systems
- Optical signal processing
