Two NTHU Faculty Members Receive MOE’s Academic Award
Amongst the recipients of the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) 59th Academic Award are two NTHU faculty members: Professor Gwo Shangjr of the Department of Physics and Professor Chen Hsin-lung of the Department of Chemical Engineering.
 
Prof. Guo, who also teaches in the Institute of Nano Engineering and Microsystems, was appointed Director of the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center in August 2014. After completing a doctorate in physics in 1993 at the University of Texas at Austin, Gwo went to Tsukuba City in Japan to conduct research at the Joint Research Center for Atom Technology (JRCAT) and the Atom Technology Group of the National Instiitute for Advanted Interdisciplinary Research. He returned to Taiwan in 1997 and began teaching at NTHU. His research focuses on the basic physical properties and component applications of low-dimensional nanomaterials (including semiconductors, self-assembled monolayers, and the noble metal nanoparticles), nano-plasmonics, the molecular beam epitaxy of group III nitride semiconductors, as well as the application of the synchrotron radiation properties of semiconductor surfaces.
 
To date Prof. Gwo has published nearly 200 papers in international journals, and has received more than ten US patents. In 2012 his international research team constructed the smallest semiconductor nanometer laser ever developed, and demonstrated that this new laser (the plasmonic nano laser) can be used to overcome the 3D diffraction limit. This study was published in the July 2012 edition of the top international journal Science, and became the subject of significant domestic and foreign media coverage. In his acceptance speech for the Academic Award, Gwo thanked the Ministry of Science and Technology, the members of his research team, and NTHU for the long-term support of his research.
 
Prof. Chen completed his doctorate in 1994 at the Department Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts. Upon returning to Taiwan he taught at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Chang Gung University and in 1997 joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at NTHU. Prof. Chen's research focuses on polymer science and engineering, the self-assembly of polymers, and small-angle scattering. The various properties of polymer materials and their complex physical structure is very closely connected. The characteristics and formation mechanism formed during parsing and manipulation of the polymer at different scales is one of the most important research areas of polymer physics. Prof. Chen's laboratory is currently conducting in-depth research on the prospective applications of polymer materials, particularly in relation to small-angle scattering.
 
In addition to his research, Prof. Chen also places great importance on education in the field of chemical engineering and polymers. Due to his commitment to teaching excellence Chen has been honored three times with NTHU’s Outstanding Professor Award.
