Wang is engaged in the research of nanotechnology and information storage, including magnetic/spintronic biochips, in vitro diagnostics, cell sorting, magnetic nanoparticles, nano-patterning, spin electronic materials and sensors, as well as magnetic integrated inductors and transformers. His research group utilizes modern thin film techniques, lithography, and nanoengineering to devise tailorable materials and devices with novel properties and desirable performances for practical applications. He has over 227 publications, and holds 46 patents (issued and pending), and is an author of the textbook entitled Magnetic Information Storage Technology, and is working on another entitled Biochips and Medical imaging. He was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for his seminal contributions to magnetic materials and nanosensors.
