Prof. Jyh-Wei Lee
Prof. Jyh-Wei Lee is currently the Distinguished Professor of Department of Materials Engineering at Ming Chi University of Technology (MCUT), Taiwan and Joint Appointment Professor, College of Engineering at Chang Gung University, Taiwan. He is also the Group Leader of the Center for Plasma and Thin Film Technologies, MCUT since 2010. Prof. Lee is the Member of the Editorial Board of Surface & Coatings Technology. He also serves as International Program Committee Member of several International Conferences, such as AEPSE2017, ISSP2019, AEPSE2019 and etc. He is also the President of Taiwan Association for Coating and Thin Film Technology (TACT). Prof. Lee was the Dean, College of Engineering, Tungnan University (TNU) during 2007~2010, and Director, Research Center for Micro/Nanotechnologies, TNU during 2005~2010.
His research focuses on the development of plasma based thin film technologies to enhance the property and performance of coatings used for cutting tools, molding dies, surgical instruments, antibacterial and pollution treatments. He also investigates the nanocomposite and nanolaminated nitride, carbonitride and boronitride hard coatings for tribological applications, corrosion and oxidation protection in related industries. Recently, he works on the research and development of high entropy alloy thin films and thin film metallic glass materials, which can be applied in the high temperature and biomedical fields, respectively. He is skilled in the high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HIPIMS), pulsed dc magnetron sputtering, cathodic arc evaporation deposition and plasma electrolytic oxidation techniques, plasma diagnosis, nanoindentation, AFM and related nanomechanical testing methods. In addition, he has done some research work on chromizing and aluminizing processes for the Fe, Ni and Co based alloys to prolong their surface life at high temperature in the past ten years. Prof. Lee is an author of more than 140 publications and over 50 invited lectures in the field of PVD and related surface engineering technologies.
