Lianxi Zheng received his B.E. degree in electronic engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, and he obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Professor Zheng has worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory, NM, USA, as a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow, at CNT Technologies Inc., Seattle, WA, USA, as a Research Scientist, and at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as an Assistant Professor. He has made many significant contributions to the area of carbon nanotube, among which is his invention of a chemical-vapor-deposition method to make word-record long (40 mm) 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, Dr. Zheng has gained several awards, including 2 Nano 50 Award from NASA, applied 3 US patents on CNT preparation, and published over 80 journal papers. He has been the Treasurer and Committee Member of IEEE Nanotechnology Chapter (Singapore section) and a Member of the editorial board of several scientific journals.
