Stanford University has recently released a list that represents the top 2% of the most-cited scientists around the world, the World's Top 2% Scientists 2020. In the list, Prof. Ruan Shuangchen, president of Shenzhen Technology University (SZTU); Prof. Hu Junqing, dean of College of Health Science and Environmental Engineering, SZTU; and Prof. Kong Lingbing, distinguished professor of College of New Materials and New Energies, SZTU, were ranked among the world's top 2% scientists for single-year (2019) citation impact. Meanwhile, Prof. Hu Junqing and Prof. Kong Lingbing were recognized in the list for career-long citation impact.
The database of the World's Top 2% Scientists 2020 list was created by the expert group led by Prof. John P.A.Ioannidis from Stanford University and available in Mendeley Data, a cloud-based repository launched by Elsevier. Based on the data from Scopus, the database provided standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator. The list selected the top 2% scientists from nearly 7 million scientists worldwide in 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields by assessing their career-long impact and single-year impact. Being recognized in the list indicates that the three SZTU professors have high global impact and outstanding contributions on their specific fields of research.
Prof. Ruan Shuangchen has long specialized in near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared (MIR) band fiber lasers, nonlinear characteristics of optical fibers and ultrafast optical devices. He has published over 300 academic papers, co-edited Chinese-English Dictionary of Optics and Light Communication published by Science Press in 2004, as well as co-authored the books New Progress in Optical Fiber Sensor Technology published by Science Press in 2005 and MXenes and MXenes-based Composites published by Springer in 2020. He is also the co-translator of the Chinese version of Tailored Light 1: High Power Lasers for Production published by Huazhong University of Science and Technology Press in 2020.
