Dr. Yin-Wen Lee received the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Tsinghua University and the Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from Stanford University, in 2000 and 2008, respectively. Her doctoral research centered on high-power fiber lasers and amplifiers, with special focus on power scaling capabilities of Yb3+-doped phosphate fibers. From 2008 to 2010, she was a Post-Doc research scientist in OFS Labs. (formerly the fiber research division of Bell Labs.), where she was engaged in developing state-of-the-art kW-class fiber amplifiers and Raman fiber lasers. After a half-year Post-Doc position in at National Taiwan University, where she worked on development of pulse Yb3+-doped fiber laser sources for efficient EUV generation, she joins Electric-Optic Engineering at National Taipei University of Technology as an assistant professor in 2012. Her current research interests are investigating advanced fiber laser dopants and glass hosts to extend the accessible wavelength range of ultrafast fiber lasers as well as developing advanced Yb3+-doped fiber laser systems for the applications in material processing, medical surgery instruments, and environmental /gas sensing.
