NCKU professor named 2013 OSA Fellow and SPIE Fellow

Tainan, Taiwan, Dec. 26, 2012

National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) professor Shoou-Jinn Chang was named an Optical Society Fellow as well as SPIE fellow (The International Society for Optic and Photonics) for leadership in high brightness light-emitting diodes, laser diodes and photodetectors, announced by the university recently.

Dr. Chang from NCKU Institute of Microelectronics and Department of Electrical Engineering is the first scholar in Taiwan to be selected as OSA fellow and SPIE fellow in the same year.

With strict selection procedure, OSA and SPIE promote outstanding members with prominent performance in optical field every year to the fellow grade. Receiving the high-esteemed honors, Prof. Chang ‘s contribution is well-acknowledged in optical field.

Until now, there are only 15 OSA fellows in Taiwan, and Prof. Chang is the first NCKU faculty to be named, according to the university.

“I’ve been working in optoelectronic technology research and development for more than 20 years, “said Dr. Chang, “and I really appreciate my colleagues and students in NCKU and many other domestic and overseas top universities to help me working out a lot of research tasks,”

“During the last decade the rapid growth and demand of optoelectronic-related devices and products stimulated the research progress in both academia and industry,” added Chang.

He said, “I’m very lucky in devoting myself to optoelectronic technology research and because of our lab. members’ efforts and the support from NCKU and many government departments and industries, we have obtained some achievements which can help to dramatically improve the performance of light emitting diodes.

In the past 20 years, Dr. Chang has published more than 600 SCI journal papers. His publications received 6283 total citations (4276 without self-citation) and an H-factor of 38.

According to a survey of Web of Science, there are 6 papers written by Prof. Chang are cited as reference in more than 100 articles.

In 2012, Thomson Reuters Web of Science selected 2 papers of Prof. Chang as highly cited papers. With abundant publications and contribution to his research in optical field, Prof. Chang is deserved to be the OSA fellow of 2013.

Dr. Chang’s most significant contributions are in semiconductor light emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes and photodetectors. His contributions go beyond Taiwan’s industry to the global semiconductor industry, particular to the optoelectronic industry.
Founded in 1916, the Optical Society (OSA) aims to cultivate the pure knowledge and practical application related to optical field. Based on the common interest, OSA links together optics and photonics scientists, engineers, educators, and business leaders, in order to increase the opportunities for multidisciplinary cooperation.

Today, OSA becomes an international society that members are around 17,000 individuals from over 100 countries. Additionally, there are 30 OSA members awarded the Nobel Prizes.

SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, was founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. Each year, SPIE promotes members who made considerable technical and scientific dedication in optics, photonics, optoelectronics, and imaging.

As an international society, members in SPIE are from over 150 countries. The Society advances emerging technologies through interdisciplinary information exchange, continuing education, publications, patent precedent, and career and professional growth.
