Professor Nongjian Tao

(1963 – 2020)

Welcome to this memorial website for Professor Nongjian ‘NJ’ Tao.

Prof. NJ Tao passed away on March 15, 2020 at the age of 56. He is an extraordinary scholar and scientist with wide interest in physics, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering and business. He is well known for his groundbreaking research in single molecule electronics, plasmonic imaging, optical and electrochemical sensing technologies. He will always be fondly remembered for his kind personality, gentle spirit and intellectual brilliance.

This website is dedicated to sharing of our remembrance of this great man.  Contributors are invited to share anecdotes about Professor Tao, your personal encounters with him, old photographs and your sentiments on how he has touched your life. Inputs gathered at this website will be organized and saved as part of the NJ Tao symposium planned to held at Arizona State University, a copy of which will also be delivered to Mrs. Tao for her keepsake. We welcome everyone to join in the sharing process.

May we together bring forth our lasting memories of our dear Professor NJ Tao.
