 Safa Kasap received his B.Sc.(Eng.), M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Imperial College of Science and Technology, University of London, in 1976, 1978 and 1983 specializing in electronic and optoelectronic materials and devices. He is currently a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Electronic and Optoelectronic Materials and Devices in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Saskatchewan, Canada, where, since 1986, he has been teaching electronic materials and devices, optoelectronics, physical electronics and solid state devices at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. His research interests cover optoelectronic materials, such as photonic glasses for Bragg gratings, omnidirectional reflectors, and optical amplifiers for optical communications, scintillators and phosphors for medical imaging, rare-earth doped glasses and glass-ceramics for dosimetry in mircobeam radiation therapy (MRT), direct conversion X-ray image detectors, characterization of electrical noise in semiconductor devices, with more than  250 journal papers in these fields. In 1996 he was awarded the D.Sc. Degree in Engineering from the University of London for his contributions to materials science in electrical engineering. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the City and Guilds London Institute, the IEEE, the American Physical Society, the SPIE,  the Engineering Institute of Canada, the Canadian Academy of Engineering,  the Society of Glass Technology,  the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institute of Physics, the Institute of Materials, and the Australian Institute of Physics; and is a registered Professional Engineer in Canada, the UK and the European Union. Safa Kasap is currently the Reviews Editor and Deputy Editor of Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Electronics, and a Series Editor for the Wiley Series on Materials in Electronics and Optoelectronics.
