This award was created to encourage students to get involved in precision engineering research and development and to cultivate outstanding talents in that field so that the industry can develop more high-precision test-and-measurement products centred on accuracy, reliability, and uniqueness, propelling the development of telecommunications technology. Chroma ATE Chairman Leo Huang explained that Additionally, he expressed gratitude to the ITRI Center for Measurement Standards and the members of the review committee for their assistance in making the paper award a reality.
In order to increase the value of precision instruments and equipment, the CEO of ITRI’s Center for Measurement Standards, Tzeng-yow Lin, says that measurement technology is the kernel, and measurement capability is a crucial foundation for the manufacturing industry to reach the economic scale of mass production. Precision measurement technology gives ITRI its expertise in establishing metrics standards and transforms it into a credible testing and verification organization. We are pleased to collaborate with Chroma ATE and look forward to strengthening the foundations of science in various industries by delivering important measurement knowledge to students.
Inspection and measurement technologies, semiconductor components or advanced processes, applied optics and images, 5G/AIoT applications, quantum computing, and control technologies in precision machinery or machine learning were all welcomed in the call for papers. It began in August 2021 with 55 submissions. This year, a total of 15 papers were honoured with exceptional quality after a seven-month review and voting process that included 26 reviewers from academics, researchers, industry, and government. They were awarded a total prize of NT $800,000 for their exceptional quality.
Students from Taiwan University’s Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Zhou Yu-Feng and Chen Hong-Rui, won the gold award for their work on “Research on galvanometer-scan full-field surface profilometry using the chromatic confocal principle,” under the guidance of Professor Chen Liang-Chia. This year’s “Paper Award” winners can be found on the website.
They also held a seminar on the application of precision electronic measurement to emerging technologies during the final paper review. The topics ranged from green energy to semiconductors, from precision optics to display testing. More industry-academic collaboration was hoped for, as was a better match between skilled workers and open employment opportunities.
