Contribution of NCTU

In 1977, the Nano Facility Center Building on Po-Ai Campus was officially recognized by the Ministry of Education. If then began to carry out the national large-scale electronics research project which helped push the semiconductor industry into prosperity. In 1998, the NFC encouraged the domestication of equipment in order to help the domestic equipment industry develop and research new materials and new manufacturing instruments including the high density plasma chemical vapor deposition and the high density plasma reactive ion etching. Therefore, the Nano Facility Center of the National Chiao Tung University can be taken as "the cradle of elites in the semiconductor industry" in the Republic of China.

In recent years, the semiconductor industry has been one of the main cornerstones of economic development in the Republic of China. Nowadays, in the midst of rapid development and with keen competition among enterprises, technological education in technology is of paramount importance. The Nano Facility Center at National Chiao Tung University, which has long been one of the best domestic Semiconductor laboratories in terms of equipment and manpower, will continue to seek prominence by providing the best education, training, and services in semiconductor technology in order to further the research and industrial development in this field.

Development of NCTU

1958 Established the first Institute of Electronics in Taiwan
1963 Established the first transistor laboratory in Taiwan
1963 Demonstrated the first point contact transistor
1964 Established the first Semiconductor Laboratory in Taiwan
1965 Fabricated the first planar bipolar transistor in Taiwan
1966 Fabricated the first integrated circuit in Taiwan
1970 Produced the first Ph. D in Engineering in Taiwan
1995 National Chiao Tung University published the most papers in IEEE ED and EDL among all research organizations worldwide

Introduction of Semiconductor Research Center

Since 1960, the beginning of the semiconductor evolution in Taiwan, National Chiao Tung University has been soliciting experts at home and abroad to committed to furthering the research, development, and education in this field. Far-Eastern Electronics and the National Telecommunications Training Center was first established at National Chiao Tung University with the support from United Nations Special Foundation. This center then gradually developed into the present Nano Facility Center (NFC). With scholars' wholehearted devotion, they have helped not only elevate the high technology in this field, but also produce highly-trained professionals. It is no wonder that so many of the prominent executives in semiconductor industry are Chiao Tung alumni.

The main objective of this center is to educate hi-tech professionals for whom there is a great demanded both in academic and industrial fields. This will consequently promote academic research in electronics and further the development of the IC industry. Furthermore, other prior research has been conduced in communications, displays, power devices, micro optics, and micro electromechanical systems, packaging and testing. In the future, the NFC will cooperate with the NDL to continue developing submicron technology to support more advanced research, training, education, and services.

1989 Started to plan a new laboratory building on Kuang-Fu Campus to support National Nano Device Laboratory (NDL) of National Science Council (NSC) and Semiconductor Research Center (SRC) of National Chiao Tung University (NCTU).
1992 Semiconductor Research Center moved to new Solid-State Electronics Building on Kuang-Fu Campus (3rd Generation) and National Nano Device Laboratory started to operate.
1995 National Chiao Tung University published the most papers in the world in IEEE ED and EDL among all research organizations.
1996 Demonstrated 1-um technology capability in the lab. to celebrate the centennial birthday of National Chiao Tung University.
1997 The research policy of SRC is focusing in 1-um technology also with its wide range application that will co-operate with NDL to service overall semiconductor industry.
1999 Remodeling SRC building in Po-Ai campus for installing the TFT/LCD research center as the subdivision of SRC.
2000 SRC and Charles Evans and Associates (CE&A) establish the premier surface analysis laboratory.
2001 Finished remodeling SRC building on Po-Ai Campus, and established 「Flat Panel Display Laboratory」and 「Micro-Optic-Electr-Mechanical( MOEM) Laboratory 」in this building.
2002 Established 「Nanotechnology Laboratory」to support researches supervised by 「Center for Nano Science and Technology」.
