Prof. Wen-Jong Wu, Yi-Chung Shu, and Jay Shieh are from Department of Engineering Science and Ocean Engineering, Institute of Applied Mechanics, Department of Material Science and Engineering respectively. Prof. Wu and Shu has joint researches on energy harvesting for years and published many research papers in past years, several with highly citation numbers. Prof. Shu and Prof. Shieh have been working closely on material multiscale modelling and characterization for years. The Integration of the labs of the three professors in NTU, the NTU team has complete capabilities on transducer/ electrical interface modelling, fabrication and characterization of MEMS transducers, and material development and characterization.
NTU will be in charge of MEMS transducer (broadband) design, fabrication, characterization and also the fatigue and failure mode evaluation of the MEMS transducers.
