Peiping Zhu, male, born in 1954. Ph.D. in Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Science in 1995, Staff member of Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences since 1995. Areas of Research: Fundamental theory and applications of X-ray phase contrast imaging. Achievement and Experience:
1) In 2005, proposed the algorism to reconstruct the derivative of refractive index according to the rotational invariable condition, and published, as the first author, in Appl. Phys. Letter 87, 264101 (2005), which highlighted as “Computed tomography: A time to refract” in Nature China 40 (2007).
(2) In 2010, proposed the method of low dose simple and fast grating based X-ray phase contrast imaging according to the symmetry of the absorption contrast and antisymmetry of the refraction contrast, and published, as the first author, in Proceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), 107(31), pp 13576-13581, 2010/8/3, which was commented by reviewers as “It could be considered as a breakthrough for x-ray imaging development in the last two decades”. The paper was later enrolled in top 100 most cited Chinese papers published in international journals.
(3) From 2007 to 2010, took charge of physical design of the synchrotron nano-imaging equipment, as part of the grand scientific research equipment project supported by Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Ministry of Finance, and built the hard X-ray nanometer resolution 3D imaging equipment in the imaging station of Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility with the highest resolution being 26nm, one of the best results in the world at that time. Up to now, the nano-imaging equipment has been running properly for three years, and become one of the most important equipment opened to domestic and overseas scientific users.
