Background and

Zhaotan Jiang, born in 1975, received his B.S. and MSc from Department of Physics,
Shandong Normal University in 1997 and 2000, respectively, and his Ph.D. from
Institute of Semiconductor, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2003. From 2003 to 2005,
he was a postdoctoral fellow in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. In
2005 he came to BIT (Beijing Institute of Technology) as a faculty of Department/School
of Physics, BIT. He had ever visited the International Center of Theoretical Physics
(ICTP), Italy, as a guest scientist from 1 October to 30 November 2008, and worked as a
visiting scholar at Department of Physics, Oklahoma State University, USA, from 15
September 2009 to 15 June 2010. Since 2012 he has been a Professor of Physics at the
Beijing Institute of Technology.


Z.T.Jiang has been engaged in theoretical researches which are closely related to
mesoscopic and nano- physics. He has already published more than 30 papers in the first
class academic journals at home and abroad. His study field includes quantum transport
of low dimensional semiconductor quantum structures, quantum coherence and
dephasing, strong correlated electron systems and Kondo effect, quantum/classical
shuttle and nanoelectromechnical systems (NEMS), spintronics, graphene, and black
