3D and 2D vdW multiferroic materials for spintronic devices.


Professor Junling WANG obtained his B.S. degree from Nanjing University, China in 1999, and Ph.D. degree from University of Maryland, College Park in 2005. After a short postdoc training at PennState University, he joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as an Assistant Professor in 2006. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2011 and Full Professor in 2017. In 2024, he joined City University of Hong Kong (CityU) as a Chair Professor in Physics.

Professor Wang’s research activities focus on multiferroic materials. His pioneering work on BiFeO3 thin films has attracted much attention in the field. His recent interests also include 2D vdW materials that possess ferroelectric and/or magnetic properties. Through materials processing, structural and electrical/magnetic characterizations, he strives to understand the fundamental physics of multiferroic materials at low dimensions and develop new materials/devices for the next generation electronics and spintronics.

He has published over 170 papers in high impact journals, including Science, Science Advances, Nature Materials and Nature Communications. His work has been cited more than 20700 times with an H-index of 59 (google scholar).
