Associate Professor, Department of Physics
Fudan University, China
Zhenyang received the B.S degree from Peking University in 1995 and the Ph.D. degree in condensed matter physics from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing, China in 2001. From April 2001 to December 2003 and from May 2005 to December 2005, I worked in Institute for Semiconductor Physics, Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria, and from April 2004 to April 2005, I worked in Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, German, as a post-doctoral research fellow. Since 2006, I worked in Department of Physics, Fudan University, Shanghai, China, as an associate professor. My research interest focus on controlled formation of varieties of nanostructures on Si substrates, including nanowires and nanodots of GeSi, compound semiconductor and diluted magnetic semiconductor, and on exploration of the unique properties and the applications of those nanostructures. I has authored or coauthored 38 journal articles and 2 book chapters.
Fabrication of site-controlled quantum dots; investigations of unique properties of single quantum dots and quantum dot molecule;exploration of novel microelectronic devices based on single quantum dot or a quantum dot molecule.
Fabrication of quantum dot crystal to combine the opto-electronic properties of single quantum dot and the distributed feed back effect or photonic crystal effect associated with the ordered structures, or to exploit the formation of subband due to the strong coupling of carriers in quantum dot crystal
Fabrication of varieties of nanostructures based on Si, including nanowires and nanodots; Exploration of the Si-based nanostructures in the application of solar cells by exploiting quantum confinement effect, photonic crystal effect related to ordered structures, and etc.
Exploration of the site-controlled fabrication of compound semiconductor nanostructures and diluted magnetic semiconductor nanostructres on patterned Si substrates, and investigations of their properties.
