Laboratory Director


Jianggong, Cheng male, was born in 1968, Professor, doctoral tutor, now he is the President of the National Key Laboratory of sensor technology director. Prof. CHENG Jiangong received his B.S. degree in physics from Sichuan University, Chengdu, China, in 1990, the M.S. degree in condensed-matter physics from Shandong University, Jinan, China, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics from Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, China, in 2000. He was a Senior Research Fellow with the Corporate Technology of Siemens AG, Munich, Germany from 2001 to 2003. He was with the Material Research Laboratory of Pennsylvania State University as a Postdoctoral Fellow from 2003 to 2005. Since July 2005, he has been a professor with the Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology (SIMIT), Chinese Academy Sciences, Shanghai, China. Currently, he is pursuing his research interests in developing novel chemosensors.

 Since he joined SIMIT, Prof. Cheng, together with his colleagues, has developed a variety of high-sensitivity chemical sensors based on organic semiconductor materials, which has achieved highly sensitive identification to important explosives and drugs, such as TNT, RDX, PETN, methamphetamine etc. Most of the chemosensors have been widely used for security check in public transport system, major sports events and other mega-events, such as 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, 2010 Shanghai World Expo, G20 2016 CHINA, etc.; His researches won the 1st Prize of Natural Science of Shanghai, the 2nd prize of S&T Progress of Shanghai, the final evaluation of “excellent” of CAS “Hundred Talents” Program.
