RHK Increases Scientific Staff for UHV LT SPM

RHK Technology, Inc. has hired Dr. Shengyong Qin as Staff Scientist, adding further expertise and in-depth, hands-on experience in LT SPM to RHK. Dr. Qin earned his PhD in Physics at the University of Texas at Austin in 2008, under supervision of Dr. Chih-Kang (Ken) Shih. Later he joined Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in the renown Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences. There he was a primary operator of the RHK LT QuadraProbe for three years of intensive use in this very active user facility for nano-research.

Dr. Qin’s primary research areas have been focused on experimental study of nanoscale electronic and magnetic materials, including novel thin-film and nanostructure growth; nanoscale characterization with STM of structural, electronic and transport properties of semiconductor and metal nanostructures; exploration of novel quantum phenomena in thin metal films; and superconductivity in reduced dimensions.

Dr. Qin has published numerous peer-reviewed journals, written a book chapter as an invited author, and presented at many national scientific conferences papers.
