Dr. Xing Chen
Argonne National Laboratory

Dr. Xing Chen is an applications scientist and group leader for the Nanostructured Materials Group at Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Chen received his B.S in Applied Physics from University of Science and Technology of China and Ph.D in Physics from University of Delaware, and worked as a postdoctoral appointee at Argonne before promoted as a staff scientist. Dr. Chen has extensive experience in nanostructured material fabrication and their applications in magnetic, electronic and microwave devices. Dr. Chen’s group at Argonne has developed unique high-anisotropic nanomaterials fabrication capabilities, which formed the foundation of several successful grant awards. The group also has extensive expertise in multi-physics simulations including CFD, thermal dynamics, electric/magneto-static and microwave models. Currently Dr. Chen is the technical lead for an ARPA-E REACT program for exchange coupled magnets; Principal Investigator for a magneto-dielectric microwave material program; Principal Investigator for a Strategic Partnership Program developing universal touchscreen stylus and Co-PI for a water purification program using magnetic nanotubes membranes. The group also participates in bio-fuel/bio-energy programs in collaboration with other groups at Argonne. Besides his career as a physicist/scientist, Dr. Chen is also an accomplished classical pianist. As a winner of the 24th International Young Artist Piano Competition, he was invited to perform at the U.S Department of State in 2011.
