So far, he has published more than 260 papers (SCI) cited by SCI over 6500 times, and has more than 40 national invention patents.

Prof. Ying-Hao Eddie Chu, National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan

Title: Van der Waals Oxide Heteroepitaxy for Transparent Flexible Electronics ( Read More )     

Bio: Professor Ying-Hao Chu received his PhD in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering from National Tsing-Hua University in 2004. Then, he joined University of California, Berkeley as a postdoc. In 2008, he acquired an assistant professorship in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at National Chiao Tung University. He was promoted to an associate professor in 2015, and then he was promoted to a professor in 2018. From 2019, he was appointed as a distinguished professor. Since 2013, he has an adjunct position in institute of physics, Academia Sinica. In 2014 he started an adjunct position in the Department of Electrophysics, National Chiao Tung University. From 2016 to 2018, he had the adjunct position in the Material and Chemical Research Laboratories, Industrial Technology Research Institute and the International College of Semiconductor Technology at National Chiao Tung university. From 2019, he has an appointment with ACS Applied Electronic Materials to be an associate editor. His research is highly focused on complex functional oxides and strongly correlated electron systems. He has extensive experience in the use of advanced characterization techniques to understand and manipulate functional oxide heterostructures, nanostructures, and interfaces. His current goal is try to create a pathway to use high quality oxide heteroepitaxy for soft transparent technology. Now, he is a pioneer with the most publication along this research direction. He has published more than 280 papers (Web of Science: >15000 citations, h-index=58; Google Scholar: >19000 citations, h-index=68) in academic journals, including Science series (2), Nature series (~25), PNAS (2), ACS Nano & Nano Letters (>25), Advanced (Energy or Functional) Materials (>20), Nano Energy (>5), Physical Review series (>25), Applied Physics Letters (~40).
