SpeakerKaihui Liu

Professor, School of Physics, Peking University

Dr. Kaihui Liu is currently a Professor of Physics, Peking University. He got his bachelor degree from Beijing Normal University in 2004 and his PhD degree from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, under Prof. Enge Wang in 2009. After that he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Feng Wang’s group in Department of Physics, UC Berkeley. In 2014, he joined Peking University as the National Thousand Youth Talents Plan Professor of China.

Dr. Kaihui Liu’s main research interests are the novel atomic structures and physical phenomena in nanoscale materials, especially in 1D carbon nanotubes and 2D graphene. He developed an advanced single nano-object level in-situ Nano-optics + TEM technique, and in-situ Nano-optics + mini-CVD technique to study structure-dependent physics and growth mechanism at nano scale. His main contribution includes: (1) high-throughput homodyne-based optical imaging and spectroscopy of single nanotubes; (2) ultrafast growth of graphene and 2D materials; (3) growth and application of meter-sized single-crystal Cu and graphene. He has published more than 90 scientific journals and applied 20 patents. He currently serves the associate editor for Science Bulletin. abstract
