Po-Ju Chen

Po-Ju Chen obtained his BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Undergraduate Honors Program from National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), in Taiwan in 2012.

In 2013, he received his MS in Electro-optical Engineering also from NCTU, with his thesis “A study of focusing and optical zooming functions on an optical image system based on liquid crystal lenses”. After he completed his substitute military service in 2014, he worked as a research assistant at Liquid Crystal Lab in NCTU. There he worked on research topics about the study of liquid crystal (LC) materials and design of optical imaging system with LC lenses.

In February 2017, he joined Optics Research group in TU delft as an early stage researcher in Marie Curie Project, Lossless Photon management – Optical design for manufacture at different length scales (NOLOSS). Currently, his work focused on optical study and application of spatial light modulator.
