    ZHOU Bing (周冰)
    Professor of Physics
    University of Michigan
    Education:  
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology Ph.D. 1987.
    University of Science and Technology of China B.S. 1982
    Fields of Study:  
    Experimental High Energy
    About  
    Professor Zhou is currently leading the research project of the U.S. ATLAS muon detector development and construction for CERN's new Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The ATLAS detector will be used to study the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism with very high-energy proton-proton collisions at the LHC. The exciting physics program of the LHC is expected to start in 2007, which will provide great discovery potential in particle physics.
    Professor Zhou is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.

    QIAN Jianming(钱剑明)
    Professor of Physics
    University of Michigan
    Education:  
    University of Science and Technology of China B.S. 1985
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology Ph.D. 1991
    Fields of Study:  
    Elementary Particle Experiment
    About  
    Professor Qian focuses his research on the DØ experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider and on the ATLAS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). At both Tevatron and LHC colliders, protons or antiprotons of extreme high energies are brought to collide inside massive particle detectors constructed to record fragments and traces of the collisions. The data recorded enable us to study interactions between fundamental particles. Specifically, Professor Qian is engaged in searching for the experimental signatures of the standard model Higgs boson and supersymmetric particles.

    WANG Hailin (王海林)
    Professor of Department of Physics
    University of Oregon
    Field of Specialization:  
    Experimental Condensed Matter Physics
    Research Interests:  
    Optical Properties of Semiconductor Nanostructures.
    About:  
    Hailin Wang received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Science and Technology of China and the University of Michigan in 1982 and 1990, respectively. He was a research investigator at the University of Michigan and subsequently a staff consultant at AT&T Bell Laboratories. He joined the University of Oregon in 1995 where he is now a professor of physics. Dr. Wang has made important contributions to the current understanding of coherent as well as incoherent optical processes in semiconductor nanostructures. He also made the first experimental demonstration of amplitude squeezed light from an injection-locked diode laser and developed a fused silica optical resonator that feature highly directional evanescent tunneling. His work on exciton spin coherence and biexciton coherence has recently led to the first demonstration of electromagnetically induced transparency for interband optical transitions in semiconductors. His current research interest includes optical manipulation of quantum coherences in semiconductors and especially its application in both classical and quantum information processing. Dr. Wang is a recipient of an NSF-CAREER award and is a fellow of the Optical Society of America.
