Congratulations to Professor Chih-Lung Lin for winning the 2021 MOST Outstanding Research Award!
The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) announced the recipients of the 2021 MOST Outstanding Research Award on Feb. 25, 2022. The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding achievements in research and encourage researchers to devote themselves to improving Taiwan’s academic research as well as global academic competitiveness. There were 80 recipients in total this year. Each recipient has received a prize of NT$900,000 and a certificate from MOST.
Brief Introduction of Professor Chih-Lung Lin
Professor Chih-Lung Lin received his Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Taiwan University in 1999. Then, he joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Cheng Kung University in 2004 and was awarded as a Distinguished Professor in 2018.
Professor Lin has been devoting himself to the scientific research in the fields of flat-panel displays (FPDs) and bio-system applications for years. His research aims at pixel circuits for AMOLED, AMLCD, Mini/Micro LED, optical sensors for FPD applications, IoT based on embedded systems combining machine learning algorithms, and AR/VR for smart healthcare applications. He proposed the first feedback structure to sense the turn-on voltage of OLED for addressing the OLED aging phenomenon of AMOLED displays, gradually increasing the driving current of the pixel circuit to alleviate the luminance degradation.
Professor Lin’s academic achievements include the Outstanding Research Award of Ministry of Science and Technology (2022), K. T. Lee Golden Medal Award (2021, 2010), NCKU Teaching Excellence Award for Achievement in Industry-University Cooperation (2021), FutureTech Award of Ministry of Science and Technology (2020), Y. Z. Hsu Technology Invention Award of Far Eastern Y.Z. Hsu Science and Technology Memorial Foundation (2020, 2018), Macronix Golden Silicon Award (2019, 2016, 2012 and 2011), Outstanding Technical Achievement Award of IEEE Tainan Section (2018), Outstanding Engineering Professor Award of the Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering (2017) and NCKU Directions for Teaching Excellence Award (2011).
