Bo-Tau Liu was born in Hualien, Taipei, in 1969. He received his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering with the theoretical and practical combination of colloid and interface science from National Taiwan University in 1998. During the college life, he was nominated as an Honor Member of Phi-Tau-Phi Scholastic Honor Society in 1993, won an award for excellent student of college in 1995, and passed the examination of Taiwan environmental engineering technician in 1995. His study on the colloid science has been published in the international SCI Journals, with more than twenty articles. After graduation, he was devoted to the study of the preparation of nanoparticles, nanofluids, and renewable energy in Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) from 1998 to 2003. Dr. Liu incorporated the technologies in colloid science and nanoparticles into the optical films in LCD such as polarizers, antireflection films, antiglare films, and diffusers during working for Compal Electronics, Inc. in 2004 and Daxon Technology, Inc. during the period from 2005 to 2007. He joined National Yulin University of Science and Technology (in Taiwan) in 2007. He has numerous articles published in leading surface science, materials and polymer journals. His research interests include low/high refractive index materials, optical properties of nanostructure surface, functional nanoparticles, transparent conductive films of carbon nanotubes, and colloid and interface science.
