- PhD The University of Hong Kong 2001
- BEng Southeast University 1988
|Prof. Lianxi received his BE degree on Electronic Engineering from Southeast University in China in 1988, and his PhD on Physics from The University of Hong Kong in 2001. He has worked in Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) as a director’s postdoctoral fellow, and in CNT Technologies Inc. as a research scientist. In January 2008, he joined Nanyang Technological University. |
|Prof. 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 synthesis (CVD), as well as traditional semiconductor material and devices (detectors,Lasers), thin film deposition, and crystal epitaxy (MOCVD, MBE).|
