Prof. Yue Zhang obtained his PhD in Metal Physics from the University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) in 1993. He was elected as the academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) in 2019 and 2022 respectively and currently serves as the director of State Key State Key Laboratory for Advanced Metals and Materials, dean of the Academy for Advanced Interdisciplinary Science and Technology at USTB.

Prof. Zhang has devoted his research to the synthesis, characterization, functionalization and advanced applications of semiconductor nanomaterials in energy and information, including two-dimensional electronic devices, energy conversion and storage devices, and information sensing systems.

“It’s a great responsibility for me to serve as Editor-in-chief. Pooling strength from our editorial team, we will strive to further extend the global impact of RSC journals, embrace a broader range of diversity to inspire more academic ideas, and keep on expanding the role of nanoscience exploration in backing sustainable social development.”
– Professor Yue Zhang

Professor Zhang will also act as an Associate Editor for Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances, handling manuscripts through peer review, and we welcome you to submit your latest work on nanomaterials and devices for electronics, energy and information sensing to his editorial office for consideration.
