Zhong Lin Wang is the Hightower Chair in Materials Science and Engineering and Regents’ Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a materials scientist and engineer with a specialty in nanotechnology and energy science. He earned a B.S. in applied physics from Xidian University and a Ph.D. in physics from Arizona State University.
Wang has made substantial contributions to nanotechnology, including the fundamental physical properties of zinc oxide nanobelts and nanowires, and the potential for the use of ZnO nanostructures in electronics, sensors, and optoelectronic systems. He pioneered piezotronics and piezo-phototronics – two new fields, and broke new ground on in-situ measurements inside a transmission electron microscope.
He is ranked as the most highly referenced scholar in nanotechnology and nanoscience. He has been honored multiple times for his contributions. Among his awards are the S.T. Li Prize for Distinguished Achievement in Science and Technology in 2001, the China International Science and Technology Collaboration Award in 2014, Thomson Reuters Citation Laureate in Physics in 2015, the 2018 ENI Award in Energy Frontiers and most recently, the Albert Einstein World Award of Science.
He is a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the founding member and chief editor of Nano Energy, an international journal.
