Director of Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Xiao Guoqing, a researcher and doctoral tutor, was born in Chengde Hebei Province in May 1962. He graduated from the physics department of Sichuan University in 1983 with a degree in nuclear physics. In 1996, he studied at the Hahn Meitner Institute in Berlin, Germany, and also studied at the physics department in the Free University of Berlin, where he obtained a doctorate in natural science. He is currently the director of the Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, director of the degree committee, deputy director of the Lanzhou Heavy Ion Accelerator National Laboratory, chairman of the Gansu Provincial Physics Society, executive director of the Chinese Institute of Nuclear Physics, and director of the China Nuclear Society.
After returning to China in 1997, he worked at the Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was responsible for the development of the beam diagnostic system of the Lanzhou Heavy Ion Cooling and Storage Ring subproject under the national "Ninth Five- Year Plan" major scientific project, and the major renovation project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences HIRFL Beam System Renovation and Upgrade, development of HIRFL shallow layer and CSR deep heavy ion cancer treatment equipment, development of a high charge ECR source atom physics experiment platform. He also participated in the projects such as the 973 national key basic research and development planning projects, key and topical issues of Outstanding Youth Fund and National Natural Science Fund, important and major projects of Chinese Academy of Sciences, mainly engaging in the nuclear physics and applied research based on radioactive nuclear beam, the study of interactions between highly charged ions and solid surfaces, the diagnostic method for heavy ion beam, and the application of heavy ion beam. In 1999, he won the first prize for scientific and technological progress of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2001, he received the special government allowances. In 2003, he became a member of the National Fund Committee's Innovation Research Group Science Fund project. In 2012, he won the second prize for national scientific and technological progress. He has already published a total of more than 100 academic articles and also served as the head of the national "973" major scientific research project.
