Prof. Jiye Cai
College of Life Science and Technology, Jinan University, Department of Chemistry,Ph.D. Tutor, Master Tutor

Research Interests:
Nano science and technology and its application

Research Results:
Prof. Cai has made outstanding achievements in the development of high-resolution, high-speed, and high-sensitivity diode laser detection methods, and used this method to obtain the results of the vibration and rotation resolution of triatomic molecules for the first time in the world. Participated in what is known as the "most complicated experiment in the history of physics and chemistry"-the research work on the impact of collision parameters on chemical reactions. He and his colleagues have published more than 100 papers, two patents and one monograph in international and domestic journals and academic conferences. He was also invited to give lectures at more than ten domestic and foreign universities, including Stanford University, Columbia University, UWO University, Hong Kong University, Peking University, Fudan University, and University of Science and Technology of China.

Six of his papers have been found on SCI by Columbia University, Northwestern University, Cornell University, Argon National Laboratory and other dozens of research units in Science, J. Chem. Phys., J. Phys. Chem, etc. It has been cited 86 times in international core publications, and it has been cited as an important achievement in the frontier of laser chemistry or the basis of theoretical calculations. Has been responsible for training more than ten doctoral and master students, many of whom have won the Chinese Academy of Sciences Yilida Award, Daheng Award and University of Science and Technology of China Outstanding Postgraduate Award. Some have been exceptionally promoted to professors, and some are in the United States and Japan. Waiting for the country to do research work. Some of the results won the first prize of Guangdong Natural Science in 1996 and the first prize of Science and Technology Progress of Guangdong Higher Education Department. At present, near-field optical microscopes and atomic force microscopes are used to directly manipulate single molecules and study laser chemistry. He has also made new achievements in the field of bio-nano, and was invited to give invited reports at international and domestic academic conferences.

He is currently in charge of the sub-projects of the National 973 Major Project-the use of scanning probe microscopy to study the proliferation and directed differentiation of stem cells and the key projects of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, general projects and other provincial and ministerial projects.
