Research Interests

With the development of neutron physics, neutron detectors have been gradually applied in many fields, such as medical, accelerators, nuclear power plants, cosmic ray detection, etc. Some applications have very high-intensity gamma rays and neutron flux density, which makes the detection environment extremely harsh.

 

Zhongming's research focuses on the development of a neutron detector that is as cheap, reliable and has a high resolution as possible for extreme detection environments. Besides, because extreme situations can cause intense signal noise and severely affect pulse, how to analyze signals in extreme environments is another aspect of his research.

Career Details

Teaching Assistant in Digital Engineering (LUC-BJTU), September 2019- present.

 

Details: Lancaster University, Engineering Department.

 

Lancaster University College at Beijing Jiaotong University (LUC-BJTU) is a joint institute established near Weihai, Shandong province, China.

 

I currently am a teaching assistant for three undergraduate modules at the LUC-BJTU institute for the Electronics and Communications Engineering degree programme.

 

Research and Development Engineer, March 2019-May 2019.

 

Details: Neuboron Ltd., Nanjing, China.

 

I was involved in a project to develop a new Monte Carlo simulation software. The first part of the project is to calculate the neutron flux distribution of a point source at a specific volume in a vacuum environment. This part was done by me using Fortran alone, and it passed the error test relative to MCNP.
