Wenlong Wang

Dr. Wenlong Wang is an associate professor of Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He graduated from Shandong University in 1999 with a B.S. in chemistry, and received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Institute of Chemistry, CAS, in 2004, after studying the size and shape-controlled synthesis of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals, chemical functionalization and hierarchical assembly of nanocrystals, design and fabrication of organic/inorganic nanocomposites, surface self-assembly and the fabrication of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). He then moved to Institute of Physics and joined Prof. Enge Wang’s group as a postdoctoral research associate. In 2006, he became a faculty member of Institute of Physics. From Oct. 2006 to Mar. 2008, he has been working as a visiting scholar at International Center for Young Scientists (ICYS), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan.

His current research efforts revolve around the light-element (C, BN, and B-C-N) based nanoscale materials and architectures. Areas of special interest include the single- and double-walled C nanotubes, the B-C-N ternary system single-walled nanotubes, the BN single-walled nanotubes, graphene and its BN and B-C-N analogues, concerning their controlled synthesis, chemical functionalization, nanocomposites, electrical transport and optoelectronic properties. Ongoing research work also involves exploring the perspective applications of light-element nanomaterials and their composites for fostering innovative solutions to the environmental and energy challenges.
