Research Profile

Dr. Xiaoying QIN (X.Y. Qin) is a professor of Institute of Solid Sate Physics, Chinese Academy of Science. His main interested research areas include: nanomaterials, energy materials and energy technologies. The current researches mainly involve thermoelectric materials and energy conversion and energy storage technology.
 After graduation from Anhui University in 1982 (B.S. Degree), Dr. Qin obtained M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Institute of Solid Sate Physics, Academia Sinica. He once participated in synthesis of TiS2 and investigations on Li secondary cells in Institute of Metal Research, Academia Sinica (Shenyang). Then, he conducted research on ductile to brittle transition of metallic glass, and growth of orientation controlled Metallic Bicrystals and Tricrystals as well as designs and manufacture of ultra-high vacuum apparatus for preparing bulk nano-materials. In the period from 1991 to 2000, Dr. Qin's main activity concentrates on investigations on synthesis, microstructures and physical properties of nanostructured materials. Specially, he conducted researches in Hanyang University in Korea as a post-doctor, and in University Muenster in Germany as a Humboldt fellow in the period from 1998 to 2000. In homeland, he once participated in researches of 85' national Climb-Project: nanostructured materials, and several projects from national natural science foundation of China. So far, more than 130 SCI papers have been published, and 6 Chinese patents was authorized. His work has been cited by other authors for over 500 times. In 1991 and 1992, he was awarded the “Prize of Progress of Sciences and Technology”  with grade 2 and grade 3, respectively, by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS). In 2000, he was awarded  "Prize of natural Sciences" by Anhui province (grade 2).  The he was selected and entered "One-hundred person project"of CAS in 2000.
