High Energy X-ray Characterization of the Wear Resistant Coatings
The characterization of the transition metal nitride coatings using synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction would investigate the phase transition of the coatings under high temperature annealing. It was shown that under high temperature, the phase transition would result in improved mechanical properties. Furthermore, the spinodal decomposition in the TiAlN could be studied thoroughly by in-situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction.

Research program


  • 2013-now PhD student, Nanostructured Materials Division, IFM, Linköping University
    Research focus: Study of the coating behavior during high-temperature or high-pressure using synchrtron radiation.
  • 2012-2013 Research assistant, Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Taiwan
    I participated into the growth of topological insulators such as Bi2Se3 and Bi2Te3 by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and the investigation of its nanostructures and electrical properties.
  •  2009-2011 M.Sc. in Material Science and Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan
    I used the synchrotron X-ray diffraction to study the ultra-thin epitaxial oxide films (Gd2O3 & Y2O3) grown on GaN by MBE. The phase transition of the oxide films were studied and related with its electrical properties on MOSFETs.
  • 2005-2009 B.Sc. in Material Science and Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan
