Ci-Ling Pan is Tsing Hua Chair Professor, Chairperson of the Department of Physics and Institute of Astronomy, National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Hsinchu, Taiwan. He also held joint appointment at the Institute of Photonics Technologies and served as Director of the Photonics Research Center of NTHU. Prof. Pan taught at National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan, 1981-2009. He also held visiting professorship at Osaka University and Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2004 and 2008, respectively. In the past decade, the main foci of Prof. Pan’s research activities have been Ultrafast and THz Photonics. Recent research highlights include developments of functional liquid crystal THz photonic devices, femtosoeocnd-laser recrystallization and activation of silicon as well as novel THz generators and detectors. The latter were used in diverse applications such as diagnostics of technologically important materials for photovoltaics, assessing burn trauma and very high-data-rate wireless communication Link at 100 GHz or 0.1 THz. Prof. Pan is a Fellow of IEEE, OSA, SPIE, and APS.
