  • Ph.D. 1997, Physics, University of Freiburg, Germany
  • M.S. 1985, Physics, Harbin Institute of Technology and Chinese Academy of Space Technology

Dr. Qiang has studied magnetic nanoparticles and nanocomposites for more than 30 years. His expertise includes: synthesis of nanoclusters and nanocluster-assembled composites; and characterization of magnetic and optical properties as well as transports of the nanomaterials by conductivity, optic and susceptibility. He applies magnetic nanomaterials in energy, environmental and biomedical science and technology.
