WANG Chengxin
Professor WANG Chengxin obtained his BSc, MSc and PhD degree from Jilin University in 1992, 1999 and 2002 respectively. From 2003 to 2005 he conducted postdoctoral research in the School of Physics and Engineering, Sun Yat-Sen University. Subsequently, he was awarded a JSPS fellowship by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) in 2005. In 2007 he came back to work in China. Now he is a professor and PhD supervisor at SYSU School of Physics and Engineering. He obtained Distinguished Young Scientist of National Natural Sciences Foundation of China in 2011.

Prof. Wang’s research work focuses on developing both theory and experiment investigation on the nanomaterials of IV main group element and related compound. He obtained several innovative achievements. For instance, he developed nucleation, growth and self-limiting oxidation models of Si nanowires; fabricated silicide nanowires and nanotubes based on the above models; developed thermodynamics of diamond and related materials in unstable region of thermodynamic equilibrium phase diagram at the nanoscale; clarified diamond and related materials synthesis questions; and prepared Al4C3-based nanowire superstructures with excellent FE performance that are composed of Al4C3 nanowires embedding discrete a-C nanolayers with a thin shell layer of Al2O3.
   
He has published more than 80 research papers in international journals, and has an H-index of 20 at the end of 2012. He was granted the second prize of National Natural Science Award in 2011.
