Shuyan Gao received a Ph.D. degree from the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 2006, under the supervision of Professor Hongjie Zhang. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as a JSPS Research Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. Afterwards he served as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Hokkaido University. Now he holds a professorship at Henan Normal University. Following the study on plasmonics during JSPS (AIST, Japan) and postdoctoral research (Hokkaido University), his main research interest is to control light at the nanoscale in metallic nanostructures using surface plasmons. So his major efforts are and will be placed on elaborating plasmonically coupled nanoparticle arrangements and studying their special properties that perform efficiently from visible to IR/near-infrared wavelengths, developing plasmonic hierarchical micro/nanostructures or arrays directly grown on the substrates by combining ordered colloid spheres templates, electron beam lithography, and plasma etching technique, addressing their fundamental properties, and the impact of structural complexity on specific functionalities, such as subwavelength focusing of light and nonlinear phenomena and sensing, functionalizing metallic nanostructures for further sensing and SERS applications, and demonstrating transfer of knowledge at the interface between optical physics and materials science to applied concepts.
