Synthesis of 2D Materials and Related Application
Yu-Ze Chen

Since 2004, graphene was successfully prepared by mechanical exfoliation, people paid intensive attention to 2-dimensional materials. Among a class of 2D materials family, transitional metal dichalcogenides in 2-dimensional was a potential alternative to graphene due to the transition of band structure from indirect to direct. In addition, the atomic arrangement of the transition metal …

An Alternative Proposal of Electronic and Consumer Plastics
Yu Chi Chang

With the development of economy and technology, the plastic waste is a growing problem. Also, the plastics can be used in electronic components. The toxic chemicals release through burning of electric or plastic waste, due to these wastes commonly contain toxic and halogen flame retardants. To minimize e-waste, hydrogels and cellulosic substrates were used to develop multifunctional green …

An Explicit and Scene-Adapted Definition of Convex Self-Similarity Prior with Application to Unsupervised Sentinel-2 Super-Resolution
Chia-Hsiang Lin

Image super-resolution is a fundamental problem in satellite remote sensing and computer vision. Sentinel-2 satellite, recently launched by the European Space Agency, plays a critical role in several Earth observation missions. As the satellite sensor is far away from the target objects, each pixel of Sentinel-2 image corresponds to an area of hundreds to thousands of square meters …

Nanolaser
Timothy Chou

In recent years, our demand for data processing has been increasing. As a result, the amount of data generated by applications related to data services, such as cloud services and autonomous driving technologies, is expected to multiply in the next few years. The current data transmission in integrated circuits mainly relies on metal wires; however, as the size of semiconductor devices shrinks …

Increased Risk for Hypothyroidism Associated with Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: a Nationwide Population-Based Cohort Study
How-Ran Guo

Carbon monoxide poisoning (COP) is the common acute gas poisoning across the globe and will lead to hypoxia in organs and tissues in the human body. If the brain and the thyroid gland are damaged due to hypoxia, hypothyroidism might be introduced. However, related epidemiological literature is limited. From Nationwide Poisoning Database in Taiwan, we identified 24,328 patients with COP …

Intelligent Cooperative Object Transportation for Multiple Omnidirectional Automated Guided Vehicles
Yen-Chen Liu

Multi-robot systems have received considerable attention from researchers in the past decades. Inspired from the cooperation abilities in small living organisms like ants, birds, and fishes, researchers have been trying to bring out the same level of intelligence in multi-robot systems which is visible from the nature. The concept of multi-robot system have huge potential to be applied in …

Generation of 3D Hepatic Multicellular Tumor Spheroids for Discovery of Novel Therapeutics
Ting-Yuan Tu

Three-dimensional cell culture has revolutionized biomedical research for more than a decade. In the past half century, scientists have mostly cultured cells in two-dimensional plastic dishes for research. However, this culture method is very different from the conditions for the cells to grow inside the human body. Therefore, in order to better simulate the physiological micro-environment …
