Profile Summary

Dr. Yu-Jung Lu received her Ph.D. in Physics from the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, in 2013. She later held a Postdoctoral position in Prof. Harry Atwater’s research group at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), USA, from 2015 to 2017. Currently, she is an Associate Research Fellow in the Research Center for Applied Sciences at Academia Sinica and an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at National Taiwan University. Dr. Lu is a renowned materials physicist who specializes in active plasmonics, nanophotonics, and metamaterials. Her research focuses on plasmonic nanodevices that enable the harvesting, generation, and manipulation of light at the nanoscale.

Dr. Lu has made significant contributions to the plasmonics field, including discovering refractory plasmonic materials such as conductive transition metal nitrides and their nanoplasmonic devices. She is an active member of MRS, SPIE, and OPTICA, and serves as a referee for many prestigious journals. She has also chaired, co-chaired, and served as a committee member for international symposiums such as GNP (2019), MRS Fall (2019, 2021, 2022), META (2020), SPIE O+P (2021, 2022), and CLEO Pacific Rim (2022). In 2021, she was selected as one of the SPIE Women in Optics Planners.

Dr. Lu is an Associate Editor for Optics Continuum, Advanced Photonics, and the Journal of Lightwave Technology. She has received several awards from Taiwan, including the 56th Taiwan Ten Outstanding Young Persons (2018), the Career Development Award (2018), and the Youth Optical Engineering Medal of the Taiwan Photonics Society (2020). Her research has been published in high-impact journals, such as Nature Communications, Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, ACS Photonics, Nano Energy, and Science.
