Prof. Ching-Fuh Lin obtained the B.S. degree from National Taiwan University in 1983, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1989 and 1993, respectively, all in electrical engineering.
He is now the Director of Innovative Photonics Advanced Research Center (i-PARC) and a joint distinguished professor in the Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics, Graduate Institute of Electronics Engineering, and Department of Electrical Engineering at National Taiwan University. His major research area is in photonics, including organic-inorganic composites for solar cells and light-emission devices, single-crystal Si thin-film solar cells, Si-based photonics, and physics in broadband semiconductor lasers and optical amplifiers.
He is a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of SPIE, Member of Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, and a member of OSA. He has published over 160 journal papers and 470 conference papers and holds more than 50 patents. He is also the sole author of two books, “Optical Components for Communications: Principles and Applications”, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers (USA 2004), and “Optics and Photonics: Fundamentals and Applications” (in Chinese, 2012), and co-authors a book, “Organic, Inorganic and Hybrid Solar Cells –Principles and Practice”, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and IEEE Press, 2012. He had obtained the Distinguished Research Award and several Class A Research Awards from National Science Council of Taiwan, ROC, and the Outstanding Electrical Engineering Professor Award from the Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering. He and his students had also been granted the 18th Acer Research Golden Award, 18th Acer Research Excellent Award, 14th Acer Research Excellent Award, 6th Y. Z. Hsu Technology Invention Award, Outstanding R&D Innovation Award of NTU 2014, Collins Thesis Awards for years of 1998, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2012.
Prof. Lin has served in the International Scientific Committee of 27th, 28th ＆ 29th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition and as the Chair of IEEE LEOS Chapter Taipei Section, the Board member of the 17th IEEE Taipei Section, and the Council member of the 10th Optical Engineering Society of ROC and Taiwan Photonics Society.
