Research Topic

As part of the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), we also actively pursue interdisciplinary research in collaboration with different labs from the industry, governmental organizations, and universities; domestically and internationally.

Optical Coherent Tomography

Optical Coherent Tomography

OCT is an imaging technique that uses coherent light to capture micrometer-resolution, used for medical imaging and industrial nondestructive testing.

Light Detection and Ranging

Light Detection and Ranging

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a technology for detecting the distance. It can be applied for the auto driving car and 3D imaging.

Optical Fiber Device

Optical Fiber Device

Optical devices using nano-carbon (carbon nanotubes and graphene), fiber lasers and amplifiers, nonlinear optics, photonics, optoelectronics.

CNT Mode-Locked Fiber Laser

CNT Mode-Locked Fiber Laser

Achieve mode-locking of rare-earth-doped fiber laser at 2 μm by using graphene or single-walled carbon nanotubes.

Graphene Photonics

Graphene Photonics

Chip Cavity Mode-Locked by using the graphene covered chip (intra-cavity patterned graphene on SiN Waveguides)

Photonic Sensing

Photonic Sensing

Photonic sensing technologies based on spectroscopic, fiber optics, and LIDAR technologies. And explore the chip-scale integrated planar photonic sensing
