Organization profile

Organization profile

Taiwan government has established the future prospect of energy policy with emphases on renewable energy, new energy applications, and energy saving technologies. Among these goals, solid state lighting and solar energy are within the scope of photonic science. With the advantages of adjacent to Southern Taiwan Science Park and abundant solar radiation in southern Taiwan, it is significant that NCTU Photonic Institute is also to focus on the development of solar energy and related photonic technologies.

In order to match the great demand of solar energy and photonic industries, the NCTU Photonic Institute has another important mission in training highly qualified engineers and researchers. Backgrounds of optoelectronic materials and device physics are required for developing highly efficient displays such as liquid crystal displays (LCDs), light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). To prepare engineers and researchers for the tasks of developing advanced photonic technologies, the Institute of Lighting and Energy Photonics provides various specialized courses for students to establish fundamental knowledge of material science and photonic physics.

The Institute of Lighting and Energy Photonics has two main research groups:

1.Solid-state lighting
Solid-state lighting with emphases in developing energy-saving technologies and utilizing nanotechnologies to enhance electroluminescence efficiency of white light-emitting devices.

2.Nano-technologies for opto-electronic conversion
Nano-technologies for opto-electronic conversion with emphases in applying nano-technologies in solar cells to enhance power conversion efficiency.
