Dr. Lianxi Zheng is a recognized expert on the synthesis and applications of nano-materials. He received his BE degree on Electronic Engineering from Southeast University in China, and his Ph.D. on Physics from The University of Hong Kong. He has worked in Los Alamos National Laboratory as a director’s postdoctoral fellow, and in CNT Technologies Inc. as a research scientist. In January 2008, he joined Nanyang Technological University. He has made many significant contributions in the area of carbon nanotube, among which is his invention of a chemical-vapor-deposition method to make word-record long (40mm) CNTs. This technology was ranked as one of the top 50 technologies that have significantly impacted, or are expected to impact, the state of the art in nanotechnology, by Nanotech Briefs (NASA’s technical magazine) in 2005.
Dr. Zheng is working in the interdisciplinary field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with the emphasis on nano materials, material/nano-bio interface, and nano-electronics. Particularly his research interests include: carbon nanotube fibers, smart nanotube based bio-sensors, full CNT electronics and ICs, nanowires and nanoparticles for solar energy (solar cells)/lighting applications (LEDs), and novel enable technologies on nano-material.
