Current Activities and Projects
Dr. Jiang's current research activities focus on the ion-beam-induced radiation effects, defect recovery and defect/implant migration and clustering processes in carbides (SiC), nitrides (GaN) and oxides (SrTiO3, BaTiO3, and Cd2Nb2O7). He also has been involved in studies of thin-film interfaces and irradiation-induced nanoparticle formations. Dr. Jiang has authored or co-authored over 80 publications, and has contributed extensive presentations in national and international academic conferences.
Dr. Jiang's major research interests are in the field of ion-solid interactions and related phenomena, including properties of irradiation-induced disorder, defect migration and recombination, implant diffusion, trapping and clustering, defects and lattice strain at surface and interface, ion stopping powers and charge states, ion-beam analysis and modification of materials, development of novel ion-beam analytical methods, and computer simulation of experimental data.
Dr. Jiang was a faculty member in Hefei Polytechnic University, where he taught over 200 undergraduate students in physics and other science departments. He was a research scientist in the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His research emphasized the development of novel ion-beam methods for materials analysis, computer simulations of RBS and ERDA spectra, and TOF spectrometer for heavy-ion RBS and ERDA. Dr. Jiang also had experience working as a research assistant performing investigations on stopping powers and charge state distributions at the Research Center Rossendorf, and as a postdoctoral fellow at PNNL pursuing studies of ion-beam-induced radiation effects and defect recovery processes in ceramic materials.
Dr. Jiang received a B.S. in physics from Zhejiang University, an M.S. in physics from China Institute of Atomic Energy, and a Ph.D. in Physics (magna cum laude) from Technical University of Dresden.
