Biographical Information

Xiaoxia Zhong, Female, Associate Professor. She got her Ph. D degree from department of physics of Fudan University in 1998, and joined in the department of physics of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in the same year. From 2001 to 2003, she worked as visiting scientist in the institute of Plasma Research, University of Stuttgart, Germany and Joint Research Center (Ispra), Italy. She has been a supervisor or co-supervisor of several PhD students and also the principle investigator (PI) of numbers of competitive research grants in the area of plasma applications in nanotechnology and biotechnology. She is a recipient of the prestigious Tsai Shih-Tung Plasma Physics Prize in 1999,  the Shanghai Rising-Star Program in 2004, the Zhu Guang Prize of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2009. She is one of the leaders of a large International Research Network for Deterministic Plasma-Aided Nanofabrication that involves more than 65 researchers from 17 countries.


Research Field

Currently, various plasma-based processes are among the most efficient and precise tools for fabricating myriad of Nano scale assemblies. However, size, shape, chemical structure and other properties of most known Nano assemblies are unpredictably process-specific. Prof. Zhong has been working on the above problem these years, and her present research interest includes: i. physical and chemical mechanisms of growth of nanostructures using plasma-based and related processes; ii. Design of plasma processes, reactors and associate tools and instrumentation for Nano scale synthesis and processing; iii. optimization of the plasma-aided manufacturing of functional nanomaterials and Nano-devices. In her research, complementary theoretical and experimental work was carried out.
