Dr. Xiaojun Wang Research in Phosphors
Dr. Wang with the Physics Department’s Electron Paramagnetic Spectrometer
Dr. Xiaojun Wang, Professor of Physics, performed very productive research when he took an educational leave last semester. He attended the 3rd International Workshop on Persistent and Photostimulable Phosphors (Arlington, TX, USA, Nov. 9-13, 2015) and gave an invited talk titled: “Photo-stimulated EPR Studies on the Trapping/Detrapping Processes of Persistent Phosphorescence.” He published several papers, including one appearing in the top rated journal, Nanoscale (Nanoscale 7, 14752-9 (2015). DOI: 10.1039/C5NR04125B), and one featured on the front cover of Dalton Transactions (Dalton Trans 45, 1364-72 (2016, front cover). The latter was co-authored with a visiting professor from China, Dr. Yuxue Liu. He also made two publications, one in J Raman Spectroscopy and another in Optics letters (Opt Lett 40, 1434-37 (2015)) with a visiting professor, Dr. Chenglin Sun. After many years’ efforts, he published an undergraduate research article (with Dr. Li Ma Professor of Physics, two physics majors (David Keene and Joshua Klingel), and a visiting scholar (Dr. Aijun Li)) in Am J Physics (Am J Phys 84, 32-37 (2016)), the most influential journal in undergraduate physics research.
In addition, using his optical techniques to precisely measure the thickness of the unique antifogging thin-films prepared by Dr. Ming and his postdoc, Dr. Jie Zhao, in the Georgia Southern Department of Chemistry, he also co-authored a paper published in RSC Advances (RSC Advances 5, 102560-102566 (2015) DOI: 10.1039/C5RA21399A). Dr. Wang continues to serve as an editor at Materials Research Bulletin (Elsevier, http://www.journals.elsevier.com/materials-research-bulletin/editorial-board/) and Light: Science & Applications (NPG, http://www.nature.com/lsa/about/index.html#Editors).
