Research


mineral physics

I am working on the mineral physics, genetic mineralogy, cosmic mineralogy, high-pressure mineralogy, and shock metamorphism of minerals in terrestrial and extraterrestrial rocks, shock-produced phase transformation of minerals, shock-induced melting of and fractional crystallization of minerals in some L- and H-group chondrites using SEM, TEM, EPMA, LA-ICP-MS, Raman spectroscopy, synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction and some other modern micro-mineralogical techniques.

My current projects include the micro-mineralogical study of shock melt veins in the Suizhou L6 chondrite, the shock-induced melting and fractional crystallization of minerals in shocked chondrites, the shock-metamorphic and phase transformation features of phosphate and oxide minerals in shock melt veins of the Suizhou, Sixiangkou, Yanzhuang, and some Antarctic L- and H-group chondrites, the discovery and description of new minerals in some quartz vein-type gold deposits and some skarn-type copper deposits in China, and the micro-mineralogical study of the Sibin bian-stone, a material for making acupuncture tools in ancient China.

I served as the President of International Mineralogical Association for 1990-1994.
