Dr. Yongqiang Wang, a CINT scientist at its In-situ Characterization and Nanomechanics Thrust at MPA-CINT; Director of Ion Beam Materials Laboratory (IBML) and Team Leader for Radiation Science Experimental Team at MST-8.  He is an expert in irradiation materials research with energetic ion beams through ion-solid interactions. His laboratory currently hosts 3 MV Pelletron Tandem ion accelerator, 200 kV Varian Production ion implanter, 200 kV Danfysik research ion implanter, and 20 kV Low Energy Colutron ion implanter.  The research topics ranges from irradiation response and mechanical stability of nanoscale structures and material systems, ion enhanced synthesis and modification of nanostructures and thin films through defect engineering and/or chemical doping by ion implantation, thin film composition and defect characterization through ion beam analysis and ion channeling, and laboratory emulations of irradiation environments in nuclear reactors, nuclear waste storage and actinide research, and space explorations.
