Senior Scientist, Acreo Swedish ICT AB
Qin Wang received her Ph.D. degrees in solid state physics at Lund University, Sweden in 1999. Her research fields at Lund focused on electron transport physics in nanoelectronic devices utilizing III-V semiconductor quantum dots and quantum wires.
Now she is a senior scientist/technique expert and project manager at Acreo, and working on nanostructure based optoelectronics devices for sensing, imaging and optical information processing and communication applications.
Currently her work focuses research and development of various state-of-the-art bio-sensors employing Acreo’s advanced multidisciplinary nano-technology platform and network. One type of the sensors is exploring ZnO tetrapods for glucose detection, and another one is graphene based sensors using large area graphene-on-SiC for both bio and chemical sensing. In addition, she also involved in R&D work on Si nano wire/ribbon biosensors for fast detection of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in blood samples.
She has rich experience working with EU projects from FP5 to EU H2020, and has been involved in Q-switch, Labels, Iphobac, Sandra, NoCaTs and C3PO projects. She has more than 100 publications, and is supervisor for Master and PhD degree students. She is a member of Electrum Laboratory strategy group at Royal Technology Institute (KTH), Sweden. She is also a board member of IEEE Photonics Sweden.
