In 1997, he obtained a doctorate degree in electronic materials and components of Xi'an Jiaotong University. In the same year, he entered the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for post-doctoral research. In 1999, he joined the Super Diamond and Advanced Film Research Center of City University of Hong Kong to study the preparation, characterization and optical properties of one-dimensional nanostructures. Two years later, as a STA Fellow, he was engaged in the research of zinc oxide thin films and the preparation and application of inorganic ultrafine nano phosphors at the National Institute of Industrial Technology of Japan. In 2003, he joined the Department of Chemistry of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was engaged in the preparation and application of one-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures. In March 2005, he was hired as a researcher and doctoral tutor by the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. After returning to China, he received support from Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Personnel's Returned Overseas Chinese Fund respectively, and undertook the “863” project, the National Nano Major Research Program, and the National Science Fund for Outstangding Young Scholars. In recent years, more than 60 papers of him have been published in SCI in Nano Letters, J Am Chem Soc, Adv Mater, Angew Chem In Ed, Appl Phys Lett, etc., and have been cited more than 2,000 times by others. He has applied for 30 Chinese invention patents, 2 Japanese patents, and 2 international patents.
