Xing-Long Dong was born in Jilin, China, in 1965. He received his undergraduate degree in physics at the Jilin University, Changchun, China, in 1987. He finished his doctoral studies in material science and engineering at the Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenyang, China, in 1997 under the direction of Professor Yuchi Chuang and Professor Zhidong Zhang. After completing his visiting-scholar researches in the Republic of Korea (19992001) and the USA (2009-2010), he began his independent career as a Faculty Member at the School of Natural Science, Shenyang Polytechnic University, Shenyang, China, and now at the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Dalian University of Technology, Dalian, China, where he is currently a Professor of materials science, materials physics, and chemistry. He has received several awards including the Liaoning Natural Science Award (1st class) in 2011 and the New Century Excellent Talents in University Award (2005). Dong has published more than 120 research papers including Applied Physics Letters, Physics Review B, Acta Materialia, and Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (cited over 800 times by others). His current research involves synthesis, characterization, and electromagnetic wave absorption/energy/environmental applications of core/shell structures of nanoparticles (e.g., carbon-coated Fe, Ni nanocapsules).
