Hi, I’m Peng Wang (王鹏), a Professor leading a Sub-atomic Resolution Electron Microscopy Laboratory at Nanjing University (NJU,南京大学), China. My research interests have been in developing and implementing aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) imaging and electron energy loss spectroscopy to characterize functional materials and biological materials at nano and atomic scales from two to three dimensions.  My current work is focused on advancing a super-resolution coherent diffractive imaging technique, namely Ptychography at a low temperature. I am a member of the Institute of Physics (MInstP) and a committee member of Chinese Crystallography Society (CCS), Chinese Electron Microscopy Society (CEMS), Youth Committee of Chinese Materials Research Society (CMRS) and Jiangsu Vacuum Society.
