Chuan Wang

Assistant Professor



Chuan Wang received his B.S. in Microelectronics from Peking University in 2005 and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California in 2011. From 2011 to 2013, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at University of California, Berkeley with a joint appointment in the Materials Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Chuan pioneered in the field of using solution-processed semiconducting carbon nanotube networks and CVD-grown horizontally aligned carbon nanotubes for high-performance thin-film transistors, integrated circuits, display electronics, and RF electronics. His current focus areas of research include flexible electronics, stretchable electronics, roll-to-roll printed electronics, and RF electronics using various types of nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes, graphene, 2D III-V nanomembranes, and layered transition metal dichalcogenides.

Chuan has authored and co-authored 32 journal papers (with a total impact factor of 350.4), most of which are published in high impact journals including Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Chemical Society Reviews, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, and Advanced Materials. His research work has been reported by Nature, Science, Technology Review, Time, abc News, CNET, EE Times,,, ScienceDaily, and many more.
