Shoujun Xu obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the Johns Hopkins University and received Post-doctoral training in Caltech and University of California at Berkeley. His expertise includes magnetic detection, spectroscopy and technology development. He invented the force-induced remnant magnetization spectroscopy (FIRMS) technique. Its high force resolution has enabled a wide range of applications in biochemical research. Multiple papers on prestigious scientific journals have been produced, and several patents have been either awarded or pending.
Dr. Shoujun Xu's research focuses on developing various magnetic-based techniques for molecular and cellular imaging and magnetic resonance imaging. The following is a list of research themes we are currently pursuing. This list will be updated upon the invention of new technologies like Force-Induced Remnant Magnetization spectroscopy (FIRMS), Scanning Magnetic Imaging (SMI), Laser-Detected Magnetic Resonance Imaging (LD MRI) and Atomic Magnetometry (AM)
