Jing Liu, female, born in 1950, graduated from the Department of Physics, Nanjing University in 1977, and has been working for the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences from the same year. In 2002, she got promoted to a senior researcher of IHEP. As a visiting scholar, she has visited the Advanced Photon Source (APS) of Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) of the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). Areas of Research: Synchrotron Radiation (SR) experimental techniques, high-pressure research and technology.
Achievement and Experience: She has been engaged in the studies on the experimental techniques combining synchrotron radiation and extreme conditions, as well as the material properties under high pressure and high temperature. During the construction process of Beijing Electron Positron Collider (BEPC), she participated in the construction of Beamline 4B9B of Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility (BSRF), and was awarded the National Award for Science and Technology Progress, third prize, for the BEPC project. She was in charge of the construction of the Beamline 4W2 of BSRF which is the first beamline dedicated to high-pressure research in China. During the decades of the open running of Beamline 4W2, the user’s research results have published more than 250 papers in scientific journals including PRL and PNAS. Liu has conducted her team to develop SR-based experimental techniques for high pressure research in BSRF, such as diamond anvil cell, two-sided laser heating, x-ray micro-focusing, and in-situ diffraction under high-pressure and high temperature. Liu and her colleagues also performed some scientific research projects and have published more than 140 peer-reviewed articles about high-pressure research and technology. For her research accomplishment, she was awarded the Beijing Science and Technology Award 2009, second prize. Currently she is launching the research on dynamic high-pressure experiment techniques using synchrotron radiation.
