Wei-Tzou Luh was born in Changhua County, Taiwan, in 1952. He received the B.S. degree in chemistry from the National Kaohsiung Normal University (NKNU), Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in 1975, the M.S. degree in physical chemistry from the National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu City, Taiwan, in 1977, and the Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from The University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA, in 1985, respectively. From 1985 to 1988, he was an Associate Professor of chemistry at NKNU, from 1988 to 1989, he was a Visiting Scientist at the Department of Physics, Lehigh University, USA, from 1989 to 1992, he was an Associate Research Fellow at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taiwan, from 1992 to 2001, he was an Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry of the National Chung Hsing University, in 2001, he was a Professor, and, in 2010, he also served as a Chairman for the Department of Chemistry. He is mainly interested in laser-related studies (techniques): laser spectroscopic studies on small molecules (FES, LIF, OODR); optically pumped diatomic lasers (ring cavity); photophysics and nonlinear processes (FWM, SWM); reactive/nonreactive collision dynamics (CARS, LIF; theory); laser-enhanced ionization technique (LEI; theory). Luh is also interested in simulation studies: theoretical simulations on spectral transitions (INTENSITY); diatomic potential energy curve (RKR) and science education: chemical concept and reasoning ability (IRS, SPSS).
