Jianping Yin received the B.S. degree from the Department of Physics, Suzhou University in 1984, the M.S. degree in quantum optics from Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics in 1994, and the Ph.D. degree in atomic physics from Peking University in 2003. His Ph.D. thesis was about the generation of dark hollow beams and their applications in atom optics, under the supervision of Professors Yiqiu Wang and Yuzhu Wang. In 1980, he joined the Physics Department at Suzhou University, China. Since 1996, he has been working as a Full Professor in Suzhou University and a Lifelong Professor in East China Normal University. Between 1996 and 1997, he served as a Visiting Scientist at Seoul National University, Korea. Between 1997 and 1998, he worked as a Visiting Professor at Florida International University, USA. In 1993, he is the recipient of the Particular Allowance from the State Council of the People?s Republic of China. From 1992 to 2002, he received a second-class and two third-class science and technology progressive prizes from Jiangsu province, China. Since 1980, he has published more than 250 papers. He has been working on optical technologies, atomic, molecular and optical physics for about 30 years, and his current research interests are mainly generation of hollow laser beams, laser cooling and trapping of cold atoms, slowing, cooling and trapping of neutral molecules, manipulating and controlling of cold molecules, laser cooling of solid materials and so on.
