At the invitation of Prof. Zhongping Zhang, the vice director of Institute of Intelligent Machines (IIM), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Prof. Xiaoqing Pan of University of Michigan-Ann Arbor visited IIM on June 25 and make a report titled “Probing the Structure and Properties of Nanostructured Materials with Atomic Resolution in Real Time”.
Prof. Xiaoqing Pan has been longtime engaged in the research of electron microscope, synthesis and characterization of nanoscale metal oxide, nanostructured ferroelectrics and multiferroics, chemical sensor, and catalysts. He started his report with the development of the electron microscope, and then introduced his important innovative findings on the research of the ferroelectricity of new nanostructures and semiconductor properties of transparent metal oxide materials, which published on the prestigious international journals Science and Nature. The researchers and graduates from Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences attended the lecture and the heated discussion made a very lively atmosphere.
Xiaoqing Pan is an endowed Chair Professor (Richard F. and Eleanor A. Towner Professor of Engineering) in the University of Michigan’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the professor of Recruitment Program of Global Experts of Nanjing University. He has published over 250 peer-reviewed scientific papers in scholarly high impact factor journals. His work has been cited over 8000 times, and his publication h-factor is 47. Pan has received many awards, including the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award, the Chinese NSF’s Outstanding Young Investigator Award and the National Distinguished Professorship (China 1000 Talent Program).
