  • Scientific Research Achievements:

Professor Lu has been working on advanced complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) integrated circuits since he studied in Europe and the United States more than 10 years ago, including device reliability circuit testing, ultra-fast circuit design and testing, micro energy chips.

Professor Lu worked on "Micro-Energy Harvesting Integrated Chip" for self-charging wireless network sensors in the Internet of Things. This work has been reported by 80 online medias and 5 print medias, including the biggest newspaper in the Netherlands. The "Fast Test Circuit Test System" led by the American National Standards Institute broke the world record of the electrical performance test speed of the device at that time, and obtained the electrical characteristic parameters of the device in the real CPU working state for the first time. Its related subsequent improvement technology has been patented in China, and is currently undergoing industrialization transformation in China.
