  • Research Summary:

    Our laboratory focuses on the establishment, operation, and application of 2D and 3D microscopy techniques. The sizes of the observed objects range from macroscopic millimeters to microscopic and nanoscales. The material systems we are interested in are mainly but not limited to crystalline metallic materials. We focus not only on pure academic researches but also collaborate with industrial partners.

  • Research Topics:
    1. 3D electron backscatter diffraction (reconstructed with QUBE software)
    2. Grain boundary corrosion of stainless steel


  • Awards:
    - CIMME excellent paper award
    - TSMHT the best paper award
    -MST meeting the best paper award
    -Altruism award by College of Engineering, NTU
    -Outstanding Young Model of National Taiwan University (100th academic year)
