Design and Manufacturing
President & GM
Rajan has over 28 years of global corporate experience spanning Asia,
Europe and US. He brings a wide spectrum of knowledge in the
semiconductor industry with demonstrated leadership in technology,
operations and customer/product management with a strong focus on new
product introduction, yield, quality and fab operations.
DenseLight, Rajan was the President of
GaNStar, a startup in the Gallium Nitride
space. Prior to that, he was the VP of Global Quality at Micron
Technology leading a team of 500+ people spread across 12 different
countries with a clear focus on achieving “World Class Quality”.
Before Micron, he spent 18 years at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in various
VP level in quality, operations, process/yield engineering and
customer engineering. He started his career in R&D at Texas
Instruments in Dallas, TX.
Dr Yee-Loy Lam
- Chief Technology Officer
Lam Yee Loy is
COO/CTO of DenseLight Semiconductors, and one of four
co-founders of the company.
Prior to founding DenseLight Semiconductors, Dr. Lam was a professor in
the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore from 1990 to
2000, leading a team of about 150 staff in the Microelectronics
Division. He also served in a concurrent appointment with the Office of
the University’s President, contributing significantly to NTU’s position
as the University of the Industry. Dr. Lam was also invited to sit on
the NTU Council (Univ. Board of Governors), representing all academic
staff, from 1996 to 1998.
Before joining NTU, Dr. Lam headed the R&D Department in Rank O’Connors
from 1985 to 1989, establishing the manufacturing operations for
building automation products.
Dr. Lam’s area of technical expertise is in optoelectronics,
fiber-optics sensors, and photonics systems applications. Recognising
and identifying photonics sciences as a critical industry driver, he
played a key role in the surge of photonics-related business interest to
Singapore. This included introducing postgraduate courses in photonics,
establishing the formation of the Singapore Center of Photonics
Excellence, and serving as the Symposium Chairman for the inaugural SPIE
conference ISPA-99 & ISMA 2000.
Dr. Lam received his Bachelors in Engineering with First Class Honours
in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (NTI 1985 Pioneer Class), and
his Masters in Industrial Engineering, from the National University of
Singapore (NUS). He also holds a MSE degree and a Ph. D. in Electrical
Engineering from the University of Michigan, USA
Dr Yuen-Chuen Chan
- SVP Engineering
Prior to co-founding DenseLight Semiconductors, Dr Chan was professor in
NTU and was the coordinator of the university's Photonics Research
Group. He managed the university's photonic devices fabrication Lab and
within a short span of 2.5yrs, expanded facilities into a cluster to
service industrial programs and published more than 180 scientific and
Dr Chan brings deep expertise in industrial device fabrication
development, component structural design, opto-electronic epitaxial and
grating re-growth. With experience dating back to University of Tokyo,
Dr Chan did the then pioneering work developing the tensile strained
quantum well growth technique on GaAs for polarization insensitive
optical modulation. In NTU, he won many industrial funding programs and
led large-scale project teams for photonics device research and
manufacturing fabrication. These programs include epitaxial growth by
MBE, MOCVD and LPE and characterization of quantum well structures,
laser diodes, optical modulators, photo-detectors and PICs. His
accomplished experience in leading fabrication teams resulted in
DenseLight owning significant structure fabrication competence IP and
the capability to rapidly rollout PIC product.
Dr Chan pursued his education as a distinguished Public Service
Commission Monbusho Scholar and received his B.Eng, M.Eng and PhD
degrees in Electronics Engineering majoring in Optoelectronics, all from
the University of Tokyo in Japan.
