Dr. A. V. Krishnamoorthy is a Hardware Architect at Oracle Labs, and Principle Investigator for the DARPA UNIC initiative on silicon “photonics-to-the-processor”.


Previously, he was a Distinguished Engineer and Director at Sun Microsystems responsible for advanced optical interconnect and silicon photonics development. He also spent several years as CTO and President of AraLight, a Lucent technologies spinout developing high-density parallel optical products and technologies. Prior to that he was an entrepreneur-in-residence at Lucent New Ventures group, and before that a member of technical staff in the Advanced Photonics research department at Bell Labs, in Holmdel, NJ. He has worked over two decades on the integration of photonic devices with silicon CMOS circuits and on building switching and computing sub-systems based on these components - including electro-optic modulators on silicon, quantum well devices, VCSELs, and, most recently, Si/Ge photonics. He has published over 200 technical papers and 8 book chapters, has presented over 80 conference invited and plenary talks, and holds over 65 US patents. He has served as member or chair of over 35 international conferences, and has been guest editor for several technical journals. His honors include the IEEE Distinguished Lecturer award, the ICO international prize in Optics, Eta Kappa Nu’s outstanding engineer award, the Chairman’s Award from Sun Microsystems, Computerworld’s Horizon Award for Innovation, and Best Paper at the Intl. Symposium on Microelectronics. He is a member of Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Xi, Eta Kappa Nu, and is a fellow of the OSA.
