Brief Bio:
Dr. Wang’s research includes synthesis of polar-surface dominated semi-conducting and piezoelectric ZnO nanostructures: including nanosprings, nanohelices, nanorings, nanobows and naodisks. These structures are formed by self-assembly of polar nanobelts/nanowires as driven by minimizing electrostatic energy owing to spontaneous polarization. The nanostructures could have novel applications in optoelectronics, sensors, transducers and resonators. Dr. Wang received his Ph.D in Physics from Arizona State University in 1987. After a year of post-doctoral in the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1988, Dr. Wang was awarded a Research Fellowship by the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, England. He received a U.S. Department of Energy Research Fellowship at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1989, and one year later he was appointed as a Research Associate Professor by the University of Tennessee. In 1993, he moved to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to set up the microscopy facility. He joined the staff at Georgia Tech in 1995.
