Lecture title: Mössbauer application in heterogeneous catalysis.
Junhu Wang is a professor at Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Dalian, China.
He received the Ph.D. in inorganic and radiochemistry from Toho University, Japan (2002). He started his scientific career as a research scientist at the Institute for Conservation of Cultural Properties of Dunhuang Academy, China in 1991. He was a guest researcher at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music (1994-1996).
He was also a research fellow at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan (2002-2004). In 2004 he was appointed as a associate researcher at LSST, Chukyo University and as a senior adviser at the Nonami Science, Japan. He has been Secretary General, Mössbauer Effect Data Center and an editor of Mössbauer Effect Reference and Data Journal (2010-Present).
His current research interests include applications of Mössbauer spectroscopy in chemistry and catalysis, development and characterization of the noble metal nanoparticles, novel nanocomposite functional materials for applications in catalysis, and the development of mini-Mossbauer spectrum observation system for application in space explorations.
