Profile Summary

Chi-Kuang Sun received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU), Taipei, in 1987 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from Harvard University in 1990 and 1995, respectively.
He was a Visiting Scientist at the Research Laboratory of Electronics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, between 1992 and 1994, and was with the NSF Center of Quantized Electronics Structures, University of California, Santa Barbara, from 1995 to 1996 as an assistant research engineer. In 1996, he joined the Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics and Department of Electrical Engineering at NTU, where he is now a life distinguished professor. He served as the Deputy Dean of College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and currently is the Chief Director of NTU Molecular Imaging Center. He is an adjunct research fellow at the Institute of Physics and Research Center for Applied Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. He leads the NTU Ultrafast Optics Group and his research interest is primarily concerned with nano-acoustics, femtosecond laser technology, THz optoelectronics, and biomedical optics.
Dr. Sun is a fellow of the Optical Society of America, a fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), and a fellow of the IEEE Photonics Society. He was the recipient of year 2000 C.N. Yang Outstanding Young Researcher Award from Association of Asian Pacific Physical Society, the 2001 Academia Sinica Research Award for Junior Researchers from Academia Sinica of Taiwan, the 2003 Leica Microsystems Innovation Award, the MERIT Award from the National Health Research Institute of Taiwan (2003-2009; 2010), the Outstanding Research Award (2004-2006; 2009-2015) and the Outstanding Research Grant Award (2008-2011) from National Science Council of Taiwan, and the Engineering Medal from Taiwan Photonics Society.
