Biography

Yong Peng joined the School of Physical Science and Technology at Lanzhou University (China) in 2010, moving from the University of Sheffield (UK) as a research associate. He is a Distinguished Professor of Lanzhou University in Condensed Matter Physics, the director of Field Emission Gun High-resolution Transmission Electron Microscope Facility of Lanzhou University. Dr. Peng received his Ph.D in Condensed Physics from the University of Salford (UK) in 2004. He has authored/co-authored over 80 publications and conference papers. A number of top academic websites, newspapers, media including PhysOrg.com, Wired.com, Chemical and Engineering News and NASA highlighted and re-reported Yong’s work of a new way to weld together individual nanowires and nano-objects using tiny blobs of metal solder less than 250 atoms across (Nano Letters 2009, 9, 91-96).
