Yu-Lung Lo received his B.S. degree from National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan, R.O.C., in 1985, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Smart Materials and Structures Research Center, University of Maryland, College Park, USA, in 1992 and 1995, respectively. After graduation, he joined the Opto-Electronics and Systems Laboratories of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), working on fiber-optic smart structures and fiber communications. He has been faculty of the Mechanical Engineering Department, NCKU, since 1996, where he is now a full professor and distinguished professor, and also an affiliate professor in Institute of Nanotechnology and Microsystem Engineering. He now is director of National Science Council (NSC) Instrument Center at NCKU.
Dr. Lo received Research Excellence in Institute of Engineering from NCKU in 2007, the First-Class Research Award from NSC in 2005/2006, A-Class Research Award by NCKU in 2006, and the Dr. Ta-You Wu Award for Young Researchers from NSC in 2002. Also, his students won Bronze Award on Competition in Mechanical Engineering Master Thesis issued by HIWIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP., World Leader in Linear Motion and Control Technology in 2006 and Golden Award on Competition in Opto-electric System Design in 2008. Dr. Lo was included in the Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering lists, and the International Directory of Distinguished Leadership.
He was invited to be an invited speaker, keynote speaker, and plenary speaker in the optics related international conferences, and also organized and chaired section of international conferences. He was chair of the technical division of optical methods from 2007 to 2008 in the Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM) in the USA. Now he is Chairman of Asian Society of Experiment Mechanics (ASEM). He serviced Guest Editor for Journal of Experimental Mechanics, and now services Executive Editor/Associate Editor/Editorial Board Member in several international journals. His research interests include optomechatronics, experimental mechanics, fiber-optic sensors, optical techniques in precision measurements, near-field optics, and biophotonics. He has authored over 100 journal publications that are cited more than 800 times in ISI/SCI web, and has filed for several patents. Now he is member of Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM).
