Industrial Technology Research Institute
Dr. Chih-I Wu is the General Manager of Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories, Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI). Dr. Wu is also a professor in Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics and Department of Electrical Engineering of National Taiwan University since 2004. His research focuses on optical-electronic devices, organic light emitting materials, metal-semiconductor interfaces, and heterojunctions in electronic devices. Prior to joining NTU, he worked at Component Research Lab of Intel in the US from 2000 to 2004. His work at Intel was mainly on developing the advanced VLSI process technology, such as Cu and low k interconnects, metal gate materials, and atomic layer deposition process.
Dr. Wu got his B.S. degree from National Taiwan University and M.S. degree from Northwestern University, both in Physics. He received his Ph.D. from Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University in 1999. At Princeton he worked on the electronic structures of optical-electronic semiconductors, including nitride-based semiconductors and organic thin films for light emitting diodes.
Dr. Wu is the leading expert in inverse photoemission and UV/X-ray photoemission spectroscopy. He designed and set up several home-made systems which contain OLED deposition apparatus and inverse and X-ray/UV photoemission spectroscopy with an in-situ electrical/optical probing station. The unique system allows his research group to detect the electronic structures at the hetero-junction of organic devices and to understand the carrier transport behaviors in OLEDs. Dr. Wu published more than 150 journal and conference papers and holds five US patents. His journal papers have been totally cited for more than 3000 times.
