Research Interests:

Prof. Jin Zhang’s research focuses on the controlled growth and enhanced spectroscopy of carbon nanomaterials, including:
1. structure-controlled growth of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs);
2. separation of metallic and semiconducting SWNTs;
3. preparation of new carbon materials;
4. 2D atomic crystal materials based surface-enhanced spectroscopy;
5. surface-enhanced Raman scattering on flat substrates and its practical applications.
