Professor Ning Wang is currently Professor of Physics and Director of Materials Characterization & Preparation Facility at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He obtained his BSc (1985) and PhD (1990) degrees in materials physics from the University of Science and Technology, Beijing. In 1989, he received an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship and worked at the Institute for Metal Physics, Goettingen University and Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck Society, Berlin, Germany. In 1993, he joined the Physics Department of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Prof. Wang’s research interests cover fundamental issues of nanostructure formation/fabrication, structural characterization by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, electrical transport and optical properties of low-dimensional materials, energy related nanomaterails (1D, 2D and hierarchical structures) and dye-sensitized solar cells. He has authored/co-authored over 200 peer-reviewed research papers in reputed international journals and supervised over 30 postgraduate students. The major awards received in his career include Chien-Shiung Wu Physics Award, State Natural Science Award and Achievement in Asia Award.
