Sheng-Di Lin received his B.S. and M. S. degree in Physics from National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan in 1992 and 1994, respectively. After two-year military service, he pursued the Ph.D. degree at the Institute of Electronics at National Chiao Tung University in Hsinchu, Taiwan and received his degree in 2002. His work in the Ph.D. period was mainly on photodetectors and MBE growth of low dimensional self-assembled nanostructures. In 2002-2005, as a post-doctoral research associate in Cavendish laboratory of Cambridge University in United Kingdom, he worked on a focused-ion beam integrated MBE system to fabricate single photon devices. He joined Department of Electronics Engineering in July of 2005.
