Biography & Introduction 

TIAN Mingliang obtained his PH.D degree from Wuhan University in 1992. He became a faculty member in 1994 as an associate professor of University of Science and Technology of China and was promoted to a full professor in 1998. In 1996 and 1999, Dr TIAN pursued his research career in Teikyo University in Japan and LEPES/CNRS, Gronoble in France as a visiting scientist. During 2001-2010, Dr. TIAN worked in Pennsylvania State University as a research associate and then assistant professor of physics. Since 2010, he was employed as a researcher by High Magnetic Field Laboratory of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CHMFL). His research interests involve charge-density waves, carbon nanotubes, high-Tc superconductivity and physical properties in confined geometries. He has contributed 105 research papers published in well-recognized journals, including 33 papers in Nature Physics,Phys. Rev. Lett., NanoLett., JACS, Phys. Rev. B and Appl. Phys. Lett. He also serves as manuscript reviewer for 36 international journals in physics and materials science.




Research Interests
