Biography

Zhitao Kang is a Senior Research Engineer in the Microelectronics and Nanotechnology Group and the Head of Electronic Optical Device Branch at Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory. He also serves as an Adjunct Professor in School of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Hiscurrent research interest focuses on optic and electronic materialsdevelopment, thin film growth and processing, photonic/optoelectronic devices fabrication. He developed anew X-ray phosphor, ZnTe:O, and worked on various other phosphor materials and luminescent nanoparticlesfor lighting, display, scintillating and biological applications.He has over 60 publications in journals and conference proceedings and holds a few patents. After receiving a B.S. and a M.S. degree from CentralSouthUniversity in China, Dr. Kang was employed as a faculty member in Non-Equilibrium Materials Research Institute and then a lecturer in School of Materials Science and Engineering at CSU. He directed a rapid solidification and spray forming laboratory, responsible for the development of a patented spray-deposition technology. In 2003 he started hisPh.D. studyin School of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech.After graduation in fall 2006 he continued to work as a postdoctoral fellow and soon was employed as a research engineer at GTRI.
