Lau Kei May

  • Senior Research Fellowship in 2008 at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Professor Lau Kei May is Chair Professor of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Professor Lau is well known for her work in compound semiconductor materials and devices.  She was one of the early contributors of metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) technology, which has become indispensable for the manufacturing of light-emitting diodes and high frequency/high speed transistors. 


Professor Lau's current research is contributing to the revolution of solid state lighting, a ‘green’ energy saving replacement of traditional light sources, as well as low-cost components for very high speed and high-performance computers and mobile units.
