In the microwave industry, global competition is getting fierce. Located in Taipei, Taiwan. National Taiwan University (NTU) is an example of an Asian powerhouse in microwave research. The predecessor of NTU was Taihoku (Taipei) Imperial University, founded by the Japanese in 1928. ''National Taiwan University'' became its name on November 15, 1945. The University's motto is "Cultivate virtue, advance intellect; love one's country, love one's people," is adopted from a line in the speech made by President Ssu-nien Fu in 1949.

NTU has performance artists too!

Chances are you have already encountered some of their vast number of IEEE publications. A simple search on keyword "microwave" on the NTU web site provides thousands of references, below are just a few. These papers (and many more) are available for you to check out, for this reason you might want to bookmark NTU.
