Zhong Lin ZL Wang

Zhong Lin (ZL) Wang is a Regents' Professor and Director, Center for Nanostructure Characterization and Fabrication, at Georgia Tech. He has authored and co-authored 4 scientific reference books and textbooks, more than 400 peer-reviewed journal articles, and 45 review papers and book chapters; has edited and co-edited 14 books on nanotechnology; and has held 12 patents and provisional patents. Wang is among the world's top 25 most cited authors in nanotechnology from 1992 to 2002 (ISI, Science Watch). He contributed 38 percent of the total citations of Georgia Tech papers in nanotechnology in the past decade, which places Tech number 12 worldwide. His publications have been cited more than 9,000 times.

Wang discovered the nanobelt in 2001, which is considered to be a groundbreaking work. His paper on nanobelts was the second most cited paper in chemistry in 2001 and 2003 worldwide. His paper on piezoelectric nanosprings was one of the most cited papers in materials science in 2004 worldwide. In 1999, he and his colleagues discovered the world's smallest balance, nanobalance, which was selected as the breakthrough in nanotechnology by the American Physical Society. He was elected to the European Academy of Science ( www.eurasc.org) in 2002 and made a fellow of the World Innovation Foundation ( www.thewif.org.uk) in 2004. Wang received the 2001 S.T. Li prize for Outstanding Contribution in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, the 2000 and 2005 Georgia Tech Outstanding Faculty Research Author Awards, Sigma Xi 2005 sustaining research awards, Sigma Xi 1998 and 2002 best paper awards, the 1999 Burton Medal from Microscopy Society of America, the 1998 U.S. NSF CAREER award, and the 1998 China-NSF Overseas Outstanding Young Scientists Award. A symposium in honor of Wang was organized by L'Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) on May 7, 2003. He is a member of the editorial boards of 12 journals. His most recent research focuses on oxide nanobelts and nanowires, in-situ techniques for nanoscale measurements, self-assembly nanostructures, and fabrication of nanodevices and nanosensors for biomedical applications.
