The recruitment of Dr. Xu’s research group at SUSTech


Dr. Xu is an assistant professor (PI) at Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering of Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), and a senior member of Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES)/Chinese Society for Optical Engineering (CSOE). Dr. Xu got his PhD degree at Tohoku University in Japan under the supervision of Prof. Kuriyagawa Tsunemoto in 2015. After graduation, he continued to work as a JSPS research fellow and an assistant professor in the Nano-Precision Mechanical Fabrication Lab. of Tohoku University successively. He had successfully obtained JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (KAKENHI) twice in the area of ultraprecision mechanical micro-/nanofabrication technologies in Japan. In early 2017, Dr. Xu returned to China and joined in Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering of Sustech. From then on, Dr. Xu began to establish an ultrafast laser micro-/nanofabrication Lab., focusing on developing new ultrafast laser micro-/nanofabrication technologies, the principles of interactions between ultrafast laser and materials, and the applications of laser-structured surfaces. Until now, Dr. Xu has published more than 30 peer-reviewed journal papers in such as Nature Communications, Laser & Photonics Reviews, Nano Letters, Advanced Optical Materials, ACS Applied Materials & Interface, International Journal of Machine Tools and Manufacture, International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing, International Journal of Mechanical Sciences.
