Lianxi Zheng is a recognized expert in the synthesis and applications of nanomaterials. He received his B.E. degree in electronic engineering from Southeast University in China and his Ph.D. degree in physics from The University of Hong Kong. He has worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow and in CNT Technologies Inc. as a Research Scientist. In January 2008, he joined Nanyang Technological University, China. He has made many significant contributions in the area of carbon nanotube, among which is his invention of a chemical-vapor-deposition method to make word-record long (40mm) CNTs. This technology was ranked as one of the top 50 technologies that have significantly impacted, or are expected to impact, the state of the art in nanotechnology, by Nanotech Briefs (NASA’s technical magazine) in 2005. During his career, he has gained several awards, including 2 Nano 50 Award from NASA, applied 3 US patents on CNT preparation, and published over 50 papers, some of which were published on the most prestigious journals such as Nature Materials and Physical Review Letters.
