FANG-CHEN LUO AWARDED IEEE MEDAL FOR TFT-LCD WORK.
Dr. Luo has also committed thoroughly to the development of Taiwan's TFT-LCD industry. After the Taiwan TFT-LCD Association (TTLA) was established in 2002, Dr. Luo had been hosting the industry scientific projects of TTLA Advanced Technology Research Organization. Resources were pooled from the whole sector to significantly boost the Taiwan TFT-LCD industry's global competitiveness. Dr. Luo had served as AUO's CTO since 1996. In October 2010 he became AUO's CIPO, and led his team to develop various innovative technologies, manage and increase intellectual properties, and establish the company's patent map. Due to abundant R&D energies, AUO rose quickly to become a world-leading TFT-LCD supplier, with the number of accumulated patents constantly exceeding its peers and innovations frequently acknowledged by awards around the world.
AUO will carry on Dr. Luo's passion and commitment and continue to develop diverse types of innovative products and technologies. Meanwhile, the fruits of research will also be supported by a robust patent map, so that an all-new green digital life experience will be created continuously through high value-added creations. * IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) was formed by the merger of American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) in 1963. The organization is the world's largest electrical and electronics engineering technical professional association, and currently has around 400,000 members in 160 countries. IEEE's diverse representation makes it influential in areas such as aerospace, computer, telecommunications, biomedicine, and consumer electronics.
