Zhang Qian

Zhang Qian, female.

Education Background:

9/2005-7/2009, Bachelor, Gemmology and Materials TechnologyChina University of GeosciencesWuhan.

9/2004-7/2014, PhD, Geology (Materials and Environmental Mineralogy),  Peking University.

Research Field: high pressure mineral physics, first-principle computational simulation.

Research Methodology:

1. using synchrotron light source and DACDiamond Anvil Cellto do experiment with high temperature and high pressure to measure in situ X-ray Diffraction Pattern, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy, Mossbauer Spectroscopy and decide whether they are synchrotron radiation user  of  SSRF (Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility )BSRF (Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility)ALSAdvanced Light Sourceor APSAdvanced Photon Source.

2. First-principle computational simulation: state equations, structures stability, charge density.
