4th International Conference on Condensed Matter and Materials Physics
Chao Nan Xu
National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology, Japan
Chao Nan Xu is the Principle Research Manager at National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology (AIST), Founder and Chair of Mechanoluminescence Technology Consortium, Fellow of the Ceramic Society of Japan. She has been concurrently serving as Full Professor of New Material Lab at Kyushu University since 2005. She discovered the intensive new type of elasticoluminescence, and established the hybrid concept of inorganic/organic composite coating (skins) and the principle for quantitative analysis of stress/strain and faults. She also made discovery of grain size effect for gas sensitivity. She pioneered the new repeatable mechanoluminescent materials and their novel applications particularly in lighting, health care, and stress/strain visualization.
