Biography

Yan Yin received the B.S. degree in physics, and electronics and information systems from Peking University, China in 1997; M.S. degree in physics from Peking University, China in 1999. He is finishing his Ph. D. program at Boston University and is expected to graduate in May 2006. His dissertation topic focused on the resonant Raman scattering excitation and photoluminescence excitation studies of carbon nanotubes. Meanwhile, his research interests also include, but are not restricted to, near-field optics, photonics and optoelectronic devices, and optical spectroscopy applications for nano-science and nanotechnology. Mr. Yin is a member of the IEEE, Materials Research Society, and American Physical Society.
