I am the chairman of IOP, we started the program 19 years ago, now with 11 faculty members.
Our research covers condensed matter physics, particle and cosmology, biophysics, atomic and molecular physics.
Soft Condensed Matter Physics is focused on particle dynamics in liquid, undercooled liquid and glass state; the aim is to explain the ultrafast laser spectroscopy of liquid and inelastic neutron and X-ray scattering. Currently, our studies include liquid water and liquid metal.
TM is working on soft condensed matter physics.
Low Temperature and Mesoscopic Laboratory and Riken Joint Research Lab/NCTU is focusing its efforts on the quantum transport of low dimensional metals and semiconductor structures, the measurement of phase coherence time, the thermal and electric transport of nanowires, the tunneling current of tunnel junctions, low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (SPM), and the magnetic properties of nanowires and quantum dots.
JJ and David Rees run the mesoscopic lab and RIKEN lab working on low temperature physics. RIKEN lab downstairs is a joint lab with RIKEN/Japan.
Research related to Physics of Organic Semiconductors is centered onconjugated polymers based on physics as well as semiconductor devices.Conjugated polymers are a kind of organic semiconductors consisting of carbon chains. Because of their unique physical properties, they are regarded as promising new material for producing LED, laser, transistor and electro-optical devices.
Hsin-Fei is devicing organic semiconductors, OLED. He is also the associate Dean of the IO.
Superconductivity and magnetism experiments concentrate on researching superconductivity and magnetism in strongly correlated electron systems. In recent years, we have made significant contributions to the world with respect to the superconductive mechanism of numerous novel superconductors, such as: MgB2, MgCNi3 and NaxCoO2. Further studies on the magnetism in the membrane of manganese oxide have also been conducted.
JY is an expert on superconductivity. He should be able to give you more details of his lab and give you a tour to his lab shortly.
I am working on the evolution of the early universe, GL focuses on the neutrino physics. He is also a core member of an international neutrino experiment run at Daya Bay Reactor. David is an expert on lattice field theory.
The research in biophysics group focuses on the dynamical and statistical properties of molecular and cellular biological systems, including the measurement uncertainty of biological receptors, the stability of biochemical networks under extrinsic noises, the entropic force and stochastic thermodynamics of proteins and biological polymers, the efficiency of free energy transduction into mechanical work in biological motors, and the bifurcations on the neural signal under ion channel defect.
CH works on biophysics, biological motors.
Atomic and Molecular Physics is focused on the nonlinear phenomena in the interaction of molecules and intense laser, and on free electrons excited by high-order waves.
TF and Teranishi work on atomic and molecular physics.
In addition to the labs shown earlier, we also have cluster of computers for the joint research group on computational physics.
for the FLASH collaboration
We also work closely with the faculty members of DEP.
In particular, we also host the NCTS branch office with DEP. In fact, Natl center of theoretical science actually acts actively as an agent enhancing our joint research here.
