Jinwu Building, Room 410

Available to act as adviser for international graduate student: Yes


Professor Quanlin Liu (Q.L. Liu) received his Ph.D. degree in Condensed Matter PhysicsfromInstitute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Science (IOP CAS)in 1998. Since then he had been working as an assistant and associate professor in IOP CAS during 1998-2005, including workingas Research Fellow in National Institute for Materials Science, Japan (2001-2003).  After that, he has worked as a full professor in University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) (2005-now). Hiscurrent research focuses on optical/luminescence materials; insight into their composition-structure-property;including chemical design, physical analysis and materials applications; to develop or renovate the material.He has more than 150 papers in international journals, and more than 1500 citations.
