Ling Hao

Dr Ling Hao is leading work on applications of nanoscience, superconducting electronics and microwave technology for precision measurements, aimed at single particle measurements and metrology with nanoSQUIDs and nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) resonators. She is also working on low dimensional carbon, including carbon nanotubes and graphene transport measurements.

Ling is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK) and a Chartered Physicist.


Ling received the BSc degree in general physics and the MSc degree in solid state physics from Beijing Normal University, China. She moved to the UK in 1992 and received the PhD degree at the Department of Physics and Applied Physics, University of Strathclyde, UK, for research on electronic noise in superconducting devices in 1995. Since then she has worked at NPL.

She has published more than 100 papers in refereed journals and two book chapters.

Ling is also a visiting professor at Imperial College and a member of the Superconductivity Committee of the Institute of Physics.
