Zigang Deng received the B.E. degree in mechanical engineering from Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU), Chengdu, China, in 2004 and the Ph.D. degree in transportation engineering from SWJTU, Chengdu, China, in 2009. He currently works as an Associate Professor in Applied Superconductivity Laboratory (ASCLab), State Key Laboratory of Traction Power of SWJTU in Chengdu, China. From October 2009 to October 2011, he served as a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Postdoctoral Fellow at Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (TUMSAT), Tokyo, Japan. His research interests include the experimental investigations of levitation and trapped flux characteristics of bulk high temperature superconductors (HTSCs) and their large-scale applications to, for example, Maglev, magnetic bearings, flywheels-based energy storage systems, motors/generators, bulk magnets, and other novel fields. Up to now, Deng has coauthored over 76 scientific papers, 1 chapter, and 16 patents in China. He is also an Invited Reviewer of several journals like Superconductor Science and Technology (SuST), IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, and Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism.
