Professor Xuebin Wang now is the senior research scientist (Level V) in physical sciences division of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He got his Ph.D degree in institute of chemistry, Chinese Academy of Science in 1995, and his postdoctoral research was in Columbia University and Washington State University from 1995 to 2000, respectively. Since then, he became a research scientist at physical sciences division of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
The investigation interests of Prof. Wang include: 1) Using various cluster and molecular models to study condensed phase chemistry and processes ranging from homogeneous / heterogeneous catalysis and mechanism of aerosol formation to biological physics and rational design of functional materials. 2) Experimental investigation in the areas of chemical dynamics and kinetics, redox species, molecular complexes, multiply-charged anions, ion solvation, and electronic structures of biologically important radicals as well as environmentally important species. 3) Instrumental development of cold and temperature-controlled photoelectron spectroscopy for investigation of solution phase chemistry in the gas phase at well-controlled conditions with tailored chemical composition, selected cluster size, and variable temperature. Electrospray / ion-trap / time-of-flight mass spectrometer, and laser spectroscopy.
