Jan Stake

Professor, Microtechnology and Nanoscience, Head of Laboratory, Terahertz and Millimetre Wave Laboratory

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 THz techniques, science, and applications. The 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, THz electronics, submillimeter wave measurement techniques (“THz metrology”), and THz in biology and medicine.

Jan Stake has extensive experience from research supervision and research leadership in projects with academic, institutes and industrial researchers being both senior researchers and PhD candidates. He teaches in the Department’s PhD School and in several courses in the Wireless, Photonics and Space Engineering programme. Prof. Stake serves as Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology.
