Dr. HW Wang

Prof. Wang received his B.S. degree from Department of Metallurgy and Materials Science, National Cheng-Kung University (1985), M.S. degree from Department of Materials Science and Engineering, National Tsing-Hwa University (1987) in Taiwan and Ph.D. degree from Materials Science Centre, University of Manchester in U.K (1993). Before joining Chung-Yuan Christian University in 1999, He was a scientist in Industrial Technology Research Institutes (ITRI), Hsinchu, Taiwan. He became a full professor in 2007 and was the Director of Center for Nanotechnology at CYCU during 2007-2009. Chung-Yuan Christian University is medium size private University (number of students =14000), ranking No. 15 in 165 Universities nationwide in Taiwan as far as research is concerned.

Research Focus
Wang's research interests include the processing, and electrical properties of dielectric ceramic and metal oxides materials. His research involved ceramic powder processing, nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes, and thin films through chemical solutions such as sol-gel, microwave hydrothermal process, and electrophoretic deposition. The applications of materials he involved are mainly in dye-sensitized solar energy, and hydrogen generation. Professor Wang was credited with his achievements in teaching and researches by awards of 2003-2005, Excellent grade prize, Project Leader of CYCU for "Basic Science and Growth of Prospect Talented Person Project" from Ministry of Education Adviser Department, Taiwan, R.O.C., and 2008 Endeavour Executive Award offered by The Department of Education (DEST), Australia Government. He has been a visiting scholar in University of Washington, Seattle, U.S.A. (2005, 2011 summer), Toyama Perfectural University, Toyama, Japan (2006 summer), and University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia (2008 summer). He has published more than 40 SCI scientific papers and filed 5 patents.
