INTRODUCTION

Dr. Xuedong (X. D.) Bai is professor of Physics in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He obtained Ph. D degree in 1999 in Institute of Metal Research, CAS, and then joined Institute of Physics. He spent two years work as post doctor in Georgia Institute of Technology and Harvard University, USA, and one year as research scientist in National Institute for Materials Science, Japan. Dr. Bai’s research is focused on in situ probing novel properties of individual nanostructures/local area of materials inside transmission electron microscope (TEM). He has successfully constructed a new STM-TEM joint instrument, by which nanomanipulation and property-structure characterization on the individual nanostructures have been performed in situ. Dr. Bai has made much studies on electrical, field emission and mechanical properties of individual nanostructures. His current interests are in situ measuring and operating nanodevices, and electronic and optical probe of nanostructures. And he is interested in synthesis and properties of novel nanostructures of light-element materials, such as carbon, carbon nitride and boron carbonitride, and other electronic materials. Dr. Bai has published more than 50 papers in the international journals including Nano Letters, Adv. Mater., JACS, and PRL etc.. The citation times by others has reached more than 700 times. He is editor of Journal of Nanomaterials.
