Ja-Yu Lu received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan in 1998 and 2000, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree in the Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan in 2007. In 2008, she joined the department of photonics, NCKU, and is currently directing Terahertz Optics Laboratory as a professor. Her research interests include the electromagnetic wave sensing using terahertz (THz) fibers, waveguides, and any integrated THz structure to manipulate THz photon for near-field detection.
