Approved by the NSRRC BOT, Dr. Chaoen Wang was appointed and will take the helm of the Deputy Director of NSRRC, with effect from August 1st, 2020.

Dr. Wang received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Technical University of Berlin in Germany in 1992. He was recruited by NSRRC, which was named SRRC Preparatory and Construction Office at the time, as an associate scientist in the same year and was later promoted to a research scientist in 2006.

During the nearly 30 years of his NSRRC career, Dr. Wang had held positions of the Group Leader in the Radio Frequency (RF) Group and the Head of the Light Source Division. He had extensive coordination experience in working as a project leader. First he led the construction of the undulators U5 for Taiwan Light Source (TLS) during 1996 and 1997. From 1999 to 2005, he and his team members constructed the superconducting RF cavity for TLS, which transformed TLS to become the second light source in the world to use superconducting RF for the daily operation. The technique and efficiency of the equipped superconducting RF earned wide recognition and high praise internationally at that time. From 2010, he started to work as a project coordinator for the design and construction of a new RF system for Taiwan Photon Source (TPS). The robust 500-MHz RF system for TPS was successfully completed in 2015 under Dr. Wang’s leadership, and the highly stable and reliable RF system had made TPS one of the brightest light sources in the world.

Dr. Wang received Nishikawa Prize for his work on the application of superconducting RF cavities to a light source and he had 5 patents filed, 2 to the Taiwan Intellectual Property Office and 3 to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. As a deputy director with extensive experience and knowledge in accelerator technology, Dr. Wang will continue to work on the optimization of the light sources, in hopes of providing high-quality light for cutting-edge research to worldwide users.
