Dr Keng-Te Lin is a Postdoctoral Fellow with SEAM. He received his Bachelor degree from the National Tsing Hua University (Hsinchu, Taiwan) in 2010, and in 2016, was awarded his PhD degree from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan) for his thesis entitled “Development of Broadband Operation and Low Power-Consumption of Photo-Electronic-Thermo Detection and Conversion Devices”.
Dr Lin received a Postdoctoral Fellowship (2017) from the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan. He has received several accolades, of which some include: Vice-Chancellor’s Research Excellence Award, Swinburne University of Technology (2019); Australia Nanotechnology Network (ANN) Early Career Research (ECR) Award (2019); Lam Research Award from the Lam Research Corporation and National Taiwan University (2016).
Dr Lin has worked across several research projects in the fields of nanophotonics, plasmonics, and solar thermal energy conversion in the last five years. He is currently working on investigating photothermal management at the nanoscale for solarthermal conversion system, development of new photovoltaic devices, and fundamental physics of 2D materials. He currently works on the investigation of the optical properties and protection capability of graphene films.
