Yifang Chen serves as a Principle Scientist at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) of the UK in charge of lithography-based nanotechnology (electron beam lithography, nanoimprint lithography, hot embossing and reactive ion etching and nanofabrications, etc.). He serves also as a Visiting Professor at the School of Engineering, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, at 2010, a Guest Professor at the Department of Microelectronics, Fudan University (since 2006), a Guest Senior Scientific Researcher at the Institute of Electronics CAS (2011–2014). He has been working on nanoscience and nanotechnology since 1990 when he started his study for a D.Phil. degree in quantum transport in nanostructures/devices at the Department of Condensed Matter Physics, Clarendon Laboratory, Oxford University, where he was the first winner of the best Ph.D. Student at the laboratory, Arthur Cooke Memorial Prize in 1991. Since 1995, after receiving the D.Phil. degree, he has worked on various pioneering aspects of nanoscience for Delft University of Technology and the University of Glasgow. He is particularly interested in nanotechnology and its applications for nanoelectronics (including nanospintronics), nanophotonics, energy and environmental protection metamaterials, nanobioscience, medicine, and healthcare. He has been frequently invited to give invited talks in major international conferences on nanophotonics and metamaterials. He has 129 papers in scientific journals.
