Research Interests

      Molecular Reaction Dynamics is a subject between chemistry and physics. It relies on sophisticated experimental and theoretical techniques to seek the essence of chemical reaction on molecular level, using the language of Quantum Mechanics. It answers questions about chemical reaction, such as: What are the products in a given reaction or photochemical process? What is the distribution of the quantum states of the product molecules? In which quantum state a molecule is most reactive? How does the collision energy affect the reactivity? Where does the energy go in a reaction? Answers of these questions are very significant to deeply understand the variant chemical processes in the nature, such as atmosphere chemistry, combustion process, life phenomenon and interstellar chemistry.
      During my scientific research career, I have built a reflectron time-of-flight mass spectrometer, an ion velocity- mapping machine and a cavity ring-down spectroscopic system, each of them is the first one in China. Since 2000, I have been studying the dynamics of isotropic variant of H + H2 → H2 + H reaction on a crossed molecular beam apparatus that employs the Rydberg-atom time-of-fight detection scheme. The research results have been published in Nature and Science respectively.
