Department of Physics, National Chung Cheng University

Hung-Chih Kan received his B.S. degree from the Department of Electrophysics in National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan, in 1988, and his Ph. D. degree from the Department of Physics in University of Maryland, College Park, USA, in 1997, where He continued on as a post-doctoral researcher and a research scientist in the fields surface physics and nanoscience till 2007. He then join the Department of Physics as a faculty member till present. His research focuses on Nano-optics, especially on the interaction of light with metallic nanostructures and their applications and excitation and propagation of surface plasmonic waves on metal films.


We fabricated plasmonic-photonic crystal that consists of SiO2 nanosphere opal decorated with silver nano-caps with self-assembly methods. Optical measurements of the sample show anomalous suppression of the reflectivity in... [ view full abstract ]
