Dr. Yu-Jung Lu

Visitor / Collaborator



Yu-Jung Lu joined the Atwater group in May 2015 as a Postdoctoral Scholar. She currently works on nonlinear plasmonics, actively tunable optical emitters and gain-assisted hyperbolic metamaterials. In 2013, Dr. Lu received her Ph.D. in Physics from National Tsing-Hua University (Taiwan) in the group of Prof. Shangjr Gwo. During her Ph.D. and Postdoc research in Taiwan, she investigated the optical and electrical properties of III-nitride semiconductor nanostructures. In her Ph.D. thesis she worked on nitride semiconductor based plasmonic nanolasers. She received several awards from Taiwan, such as Taiwan Outstanding Women in Science—Chui-Chu Mon Fellowship, Chien-Shiung Wu Fellowship, The President’s Scholarship of NTHU, The Honorary Member of the Phi-Tau-Phi Scholastic Honor Society and Postdoctoral Research Abroad Fellowship. Her research works have been published in various journals, including Nano Letters, ACS Nano, Applied Physics Letters and Science.
