Shihe Yang Ph.D.
Dr. Yang’s research spends a broad spectrum ranging from cluster science to nanomaterials science and from gas phase to condensed phases. He has been active in understanding structure, dynamics, and photochemistry of isolated clusters and complexes. In recent years, Dr. Yang directed his research interest to the controlled synthesis, assembly, and characterization of zero-, one-, and two-dimensional nanoscale materials. Current systems under investigations include: (1) Higher fullerenes, fullerene-metal derivatives (particularly the exotic endohedral metallofullerenes), and metal and semiconductor nano-particles; (2) Metal and semiconductor nanowires; and (3) Structure and dynamics at soft molecular interfaces. Main efforts are focused on the development of new methods for the synthesis of nano-structured materials and the characterization of their unique properties with high potential for future applications.
