About TOP Center
The NTHU THz Optics & Photonics Center is formally established under the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2019. Currently, we have five technical groups, including Laser & Nonlinear Optics, Optoelectronics, Ultra-fast Electronics, Vacuum Electronics and THz system & application. Our members are from diverse disciplines across the NTHU campus, as well as from neighbor research institutes.
Terahertz Optics and Photonics Center (TOP Center) boasts the most formidable team of terahertz optoelectronics researchers in Taiwan. Our research encompasses a wide array of terahertz-related fields, including, but not limited to, optics, electronics, electrodynamics, ultrafast optics, quantum materials, nano-fabrication, advanced packaging, high-speed communacations, computational imaging, and biochemical charcterization.
With an exceptional team from National Tsing Hua University, the most comprehensive research equipment inventory in Taiwan, and unwavering support from key stakeholders in the industry, government, and academia, such as Hsinchu Science Park, Industial Technology Research Institute, and Taiwan Semiconductor Research Center, we are pursuing our mission to establish ourselves as a world-class terahertz research center.
At TOP Center, we are dedicated to the real-world application development of terahertz devices, high-speed communication systems, precision laser machining, industrial inspection, biomedical examinations, synchrotron radiation, free electron lasers, and high-energy lasers. Our commitment extends to enriching society and advancing industry through the cultivation of high-end research and development talents.
