Welcome to Fan-Gang Tseng's lab in the Department of Engineering and System Science (ESS) at National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan. Since its inception in 1999, Tseng's lab has grown to become one of the largest MEMS research groups in Taiwan and committed to excel in the area of micro- and nano-science multidisciplinary research at the nexus of biology, physics, and engineering and their integrations which hopefully could lead to innovative applications. More specifically, seven major research directions have been established to study the fundamentals and develop the following technologies: (a) ultrasensitive single molecule protein nanoarray, (b) fast single molecule DNA sequencing, (c) ultrasensitive and high-speed detection of biochemical release agent at a single cell or multiple cells level, (d) ultrasensitive and high-speed dynamic monitoring and detection of neurotransmitter, (e) high efficiency and non-toxic nanoparticles for biomolecules and cellular study, (f) integrated optoelectronic microsystem, (g) integrated circuit design for micro-/nano-system, (h) surface tension dominant nano-/micro-system, and many more.
Currently, the lab members consist of 2 postdoctoral fellows, 2 research assistants, 20 Ph.D. students, 20 master students, 9 undergraduate students, and so far, over 10 Ph.D. and 100 master students have graduated from the lab. More than 80 million NT dollars have been invested to develop seven major current state-of-the-art and well-equipped laboratories, which include 10K cleanroom, chemistry laboratory, nanoscale thin film deposition laboratory, MEMS testing and packaging laboratory, nano-/micro-fluidics system and nano-optics testing laboratory, atomic force microscopy and nanoindentation laboratory, and nano-/micro-fluidics simulation laboratory which occupy about 330-square- meter of space.
