Dr. Y.L. Lo received his B.S. degree from National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, in 1985, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Smart Materials and Structures Research Center, University of Maryland, College Park, USA in 1992 and 1995, respectively. After graduation, he joined the Opto-Electronics and Systems Laboratories of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), working on fiber optic smart structures and fiber communications. He has been a member of the Mechanical Engineering Department, NCKU, since 1996, where he is now a full professor and distinguished professor in NCKU. Also, he is an affiliate professor in Institute of Nanotechnology and Microsystem Engineering.
Dr. Lo received the First-Class Research Award by National Science Council (NSC) in Taiwan, 2005-2006 and Dr. Wu, Ta-You Memorial Award for Young Researchers by NSC in Taiwan, 2002. Dr. Lo is included in Who’s Who in the World and Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.
He was Chair in technical division of optical methods in Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM) in USA, 2008. Currently, he is Steering Committee in Society of Asian Committee for Experimental Mechanics (ACEM). Dr. Lo is now Director of Instrument Development Center and NSC Instrument Center at NCKU. His research interests lie in the areas of fiber-optic sensors, passive components in optical fiber communications, experimental mechanics, optical techniques in precision measurements on LCD panels, and MOEMS. He has authored over 90 journal publications and has filed several patents. Most papers are published in IEEE, OSA, SPIE, SEM and etc.
