Ying-Bing Jiang, Ph.D.

YingbingYing-Bing Jiang, Ph.D.
Research Associate Professor
Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering
Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences
Member, Center for Micro-Engineered Materials
The University of New Mexico

Dr. Jiang’s research areas include: Studying material’s characterization by transmission electron microscopes (TEM);  Atomic layer deposition (ALD) techniques, which precisely builds up nanostructures one atomic layer by one atomic layer; Applying ALD techniques to precisely construct ultra-thin membranes as well as other functional nanostructures for energy, environment and sustainability, including biomimetic nanopores mimicking aquaporin for water desalination, enzymatic liquid membrane for CO2 capture and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) applications, as well as nano core-shelled particles for lithium ion batteries
