He first started at General Electric (the largest diamond maker) and became Manager of Diamond Engineering until 1984. Dr. Sung later helped Norton (the largest diamond user) establish diamond synthesis capabilities. In late 1980s he also transferred diamond technology to Iljin of Korea (the largest diamond maker in Asia). In early 1990 Dr. Sung developed novel diamond tools at Industrial Technology Research Institute in Taiwan. Between 1996 and 2010, Dr. Sung became the General Manager of the Diamond Technology Center at Kinik Company, the preeminent diamond research institution in Taiwan and developed state-of-the-art diamond technologies for Kinik in Taiwan. As a result, Kinik has become one of the world’s largest producers of diamond disks that was indispensable for the manufacture of semiconductor products. He is a professor at National Taiwan University and National Taipei University of Technology. He has published 15 books in the fields of diamond products and technologies, the origin of the universe, the evolution of life, the scientific elucidation of religion, the politics of Taiwan, patent litigation, and business strategy.
