      Lecture Topics: New Material Based Micro/Nano Devices Flexible Electronics Novel Acoustic and RF Devices Non-volatile Memory

      Biography: Tian-Ling Ren received his Ph.D. degree in solid-state physics from Department of Modern Applied Physics, Tsinghua University, China in 1997.

      He is full professor of Institute of Microelectronics, Tsinghua University since 2003. He has been a visiting professor at Electrical Engineering Department, Stanford University from 2011 to 2012.

      For these years, Prof. Ren’s research mainly focused on novel micro/nano electronic devices and key technologies, including nonvolatile memories (RRAM, FeRAM), RF devices (resonator, inductor), sensors, and MEMS. Prof. Ren’s main contributions are that he has developed the new integration methods for novel material based micro/nano device and circuit applications. For examples, he proposed the RRAM structure with integration of single layer graphene, which can drastically decrease the power consumption of the device; he developed the ferroelectric thin film based integrated acoustic devices; he also proposed the graphene sound source devices for the first time; and he realized the high quality ultra-flexible structured RF resonators with very promising applications. He has published more than 300 journal and conference papers. He has more than 40 patents.

      He has been an Elected Member at Large, and Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Electron Devices Society. He is also Council Member of Chinese Society of Micro/Nano Technology. For these years, Prof. Ren has been the technical committee member for several leading international conferences, including International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM), and Device Research Meeting (DRC). He is also editorial board member of Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group).

      Biography:  STEVE S. CHUNG (S'83-M'85-SM'95-F'06) received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in Electrical Engineering in 1985. His Ph.D. thesis advisor is the world-famous scholar and CMOS Co-Inventor, Prof. C. T. Sah.

      Currently, he is a Chair Professor and UMC Research Chair Professor at the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU).  After joining NCTU in 1987, he has been the first Department Head of EECS Honors Program, to promote an undergraduate program for academic excellence from 2004-2005. Later, he was also the Dean of International Affairs Office, Executive Director of school level research center, between 2007-2008. He was a Research Visiting Scholar with Stanford University in 2001, visiting professor to University of California-Merced in 2009-2010, and a guest lecturer at Stanford in the Fall of 2009. He was also the consultant to the two world largest IC foundries, TSMC and UMC, on developing CMOS and flash memory technologies. His recent current research areas include- nanoscale CMOS devices and technology; nonvolatile memory technology and reliability; and reliability physics/interface characterization. He has published more than 220 journal and conference papers, one textbook, and holds more than 20 patents. Since 1995, he has presented more than 22 times in the IEEE flagship conferences, IEDM and VLSI. In particular, he was the first (from Taiwan) to present the paper at VLSI Technology symposium in 1995.

      He is an IEEE Fellow, the current IEEE EDS BoG(Board of Governor) member, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, EDS Regions/Chapters Chair, and with past involvement as EDS AdCom member (2004-2009), EDS Regions/Chapters Vice-Chair, Guest Editor of TDMR, and Editor of EDL(2002-2008). He has served on various IEEE conference committees, e.g., VLSI Technology, IEDM, IRPS, IPFA, ICMTS, SNW, VLSI-TSA etc. Also, he has served as the TPC Vice-Chair and subsequently the organizing member of SSDM in Japan. ED Taipei chapter was awarded the 2002 EDS Chapter of the Year Award under his leadership as the chapter chair. He was awarded 3 times outstanding Research Award, distinguished PI, and distinguished NSC Research Fellow, from the National Science Council, as well as Distinguished EE Professor and Engineering Professor of the Engineering Societies in Taiwan. More recently, he was also honored the recipient of 2013 Pan Wen Yuan award in recognizing his outstanding achievements in the semiconductor research.
