5:30 pmto6:30 pm

The IEEE Canadian Atlantic Section Communications Society Chapter and Computer Society Chapter, along with the Faculty of Engineering at Dalhousie University, invite you to the following seminar event which is open to public and the details are as follows:

Title: Photoelectronic Devices and Smart Sensors Fabricated by MEMS Technology
Speaker: Ray-Hua Horng, Professor
Department of Electro-Optical Engineering,
National Cheng Kung University
Time: 5:30pm-6:30pm, Friday, May 6, 2011
Place: Room B311, Sexton Campus, Dalhousie University, 1360 Barrington Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Refreshments: Refreshments will be provided to the attendees
Local Contacts: Mr. Scott Melvin at Scott <dot> Melvin <at> ieee <dot> org or
Mr. Simon DeWolf at sdewolf <at> compusult <dot> net


In this talk, I will describe how to improve the performances of light emitting diodes (GaN-based and GaInP based) and III-V solar cells by MEMS technology. Using the MEMS technology containing wafer bonding, electroplating and smart cutting, epilayers can be separated from epitaxial substrate and transferred onto the functional permanent substrate. Using the same process, the traditional ribbon microphone is all also miniaturized and fabricated into mini-ribbon microphone.

About the Speaker:

Ray-Hua Horng received her Bachelor of Science degree in 1987 from the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan and her Ph.D. degree in 1993 from the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Sun Yat-Sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

She is currently a professor in the Department of Electro-Optical Engineering at the National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan. She has worked in the Research Laboratories of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Hsin Chu, Taiwan and taught in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Da-Yeh University in Chang Hwa, Taiwan and the Graduate Institute of Precision Engineering at the National Chung Hsing University in Taichung, Taiwan prior to her current appointment. Her research interests include solid-state lighting devices, solar cells, flexible electronics, optoelectronics, nitride and oxide semiconductor MOCVD growths, and mini-microphones.
