Ci-Ling Pan the Department of Physics and Institute of Astronomy,

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.
