Georgia Tech, Center for Nanostructure Characterization


Dr. Zhong Lin (ZL) Wang is a Regents’ Professor, COE Distinguished Professor and Director, Center for Nanostructure Characterization, at Georgia Tech. Dr. Wang is a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, fellow of American Physical Society, fellow of AAAS, fellow of Microscopy Society of America and fellow of Materials Research Society. He has received the 2001 S.T. Li prize, the 1999 Burton Medal from Microscopy Society of America, and the 2009 Purdy award from American ceramic society. Dr. Wang has made original and profound contributions to the synthesis, discovery, characterization and understanding of fundamental physical properties of oxide nanobelts and nanowires, as well as applications of nanowires in energy sciences, electronics, optoelectronics and biological science. He invented and pioneered the in-situ technique for measuring the mechanical and electrical properties of a single nanotube/nanowire inside a transmission electron microscope (TEM). His breakthroughs in developing nanogenerators establish the principle and technological road map for harvesting mechanical energy from environment and biological systems for powering a personal electronics. He initiated, coined and pioneered the field of piezotronics and piezo-phototronics by introducing piezoelectric potential gated charge transport process in fabricating new electronic and optoelectronic devices, which have potential applications in MEMS/NEMS, nanorobotics, human-electronics interface, sensors, medical diagnosis and photovoltaic. Dr. Wang is the world’s top 5 most cited authors in nanotechnology and materials science. He has published four scientific reference and textbooks and over 640 peer reviewed journal articles, 45 book chapters, edited and co-edited 14 volumes of books on nanotechnology, and held 28 patents. His entire publications have been cited for over 37,000 times. The H-index of his citations is 92. Details can be found at: http://www.nanoscience.gatech.edu/zlwang
