Lin, Ching-Fuh, Ph.D.



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 Chairman of Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics, the Director of Innovative Photonics Advanced Research Center (i-PARC), and a joint 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 composite thin-film solar cells and optoelectronic devices, single-crystal Si thin-film solar cells, Si-based photonics, and physics in broadband semiconductor lasers and optical amplifiers. He is also interested in indigenous psychology, particularly in the area of cultural impact on organizational behaviors and psychological thoughts/behaviors. For such interest, he has enrolled as a MS student in the Psychology Department at National Taiwan University, still in the pursuit of MS degree in this area.

He is currently a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of SPIE, Member of Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, and a member of OSA. He has published over 150 journal papers and more than 400 conference papers and holds over 40 patents in photonics area and published one Chinese
article and two conference papers in psychological area. He is also the sole author of two books, “Optical Components for Communications: Principles and Applications”, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers (USA 2004), and “光學與光電導論"(Optics and Photonics: Fundamentals and Applications), published by 五南圖書出版股份有限公司(Taiwan, 2012) and co-authors/edits 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, 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 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, the Evaluation Committee member of Higher Education Evaluating & Accreditation Council of Taiwan, the Council member of the 10th Optical Engineering Society of ROC, and the Convener in the area of Electronics and Information for the Conventional Industry Technology Development Project in the Bureau of Industry, Ministry of Economics, ROC. He has also served as Project Instructors of the National Programs in the nano-science and nano- technology and the renewable energy (solar energy) and general Chairs of several international conferences.
