Scientist Zhang Shouyi’s death, all the heavyweight awards in the physical world, Mito’s new…


China Overseas Network December 6th: Powerful! Yang Zhenning’s disciple and famous Chinese scientist Zhang Shouyi passed away. At the age of 55, according to the MIT Science and Technology Review official microblog on December 6, the Chinese American physicist, Stanford University tenured professor, American Academy of Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences foreign academician Zhang Shouyi passed away At the age of 55. “MIT Technology Review” official microblogging screenshots famous voice “angel particles” laid the physics milestone In July 2017, Stanford University tenured professor Zhang Shouyi reported in the US “Science” magazine, its team first discovered Mayo Evidence of the existence of Lana Fermion and named it “angel particles.” This major discovery solved the 80-year problem that plagued quantum physics, and made the name of Zhang Shouyi widely known by Chinese people all over the world. In addition, Zhang Shouyi’s physics awards include the European Physics Award, the American Physical Society Barclays Award, the International Center for Theoretical Physics, the Dirac Prize, and the Yuri Basic Physics Award. In recent years, Zhang Shouyi has often been rated by the Western media as the best theorist who is most likely to win the Nobel Prize in Physics. His teacher, Yang Zhenning, even said in an interview with the media that he won the Nobel Prize “just sooner or later.” Zhang Shouqi was born in Jiangsu Gaoyou and was born in Shanghai in 1963. Zhang Shouyi, a boy’s age, didn’t go to school, but he read a lot. The third floor of the house “has a lot of books that my grandfather loves, mostly literature, philosophy, history.” The only science book is a set of mathematical self-study manuals that his father bought for him during the summer vacation. In 1978, in the second year of the resumption of the college entrance examination, Zhang Shouyi, who had not attended the high school for one day, successfully entered Fudan University by relying on the knowledge he had acquired. That year, he was 15 years old. Zhang Shouyi. Chen Gang, a photographer from Yang Zhenning, thought that he would become a liberal arts student. In 1980, Zhang Shou went to study at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, and received a master’s degree in 1983. In the same year, 20-year-old Zhang Shouyi became a Ph.D. student at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and received his Ph.D. Zhang Shouyi, who was immersed in a large number of literary works in the attic, felt that he might become a liberal arts student in the future. He never thought that he would become a scientist in the future and embarked on the path of theoretical physics. “The reason why the physics department was chosen is because the Chinese physicists Yang Zhenning and Li Zhengdao won the Nobel Prize, which inspired young people of that era.” Zhang Shouyi explained that he was on the road of physics research and was influenced by Yang Zhenning. Great impact. Before entering Yang Zhenning’s research institute, Zhang Shouyi’s academic ideal was to unify the four major forces of physics—gravitational force, electromagnetic force, strength and weakness. This is the direction of Einstein’s life and the main academic field of Yang Zhenning. However, after Yang Zhenning, the focus of Zhang Shouqi’s attack has changed. At that time, Yang Zhenning believed that it was difficult to break through in the field he was in, and that condensed physics had just developed rapidly, so he encouraged Zhang Shou to study condensed matter physics. It is precisely the guidance of the teacher, Zhang Shouyi has become a leader in the field of condensed physics. In addition to the academic guidelines, Zhang Shouyi also thanked the teacher for his instillation. In Zhang Shouyi’s view, “Einstein and Yang Zhenning, the prophets of theoretical physics, are looking for beauty and seeking truth all their life.” This aesthetic is the beauty of romance, and its essence is concise. After graduation, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Santa Barbara. After that, he went to IBM as a senior researcher. Since 1993, he has taught at Stanford University. At the age of 33, Zhang Shouyi became one of the youngest tenured professors in the school. Yang Zhenning. Huang Jingyi photo The birth of the “Angel Particle” “I want to thank the motherland for being strong now” Zhang Shouyi attaches great importance to the exchange of young Chinese scientists. In 1999, Zhang Zhenyu became a special professor at Tsinghua University. In recent years, he has traveled to and from China and the United States to undertake science and education. Many of his students in Stanford are from Tsinghua University and Peking University. Before his death, Zhang Shouqi was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He also served as a lecturer in the Department of Physics, Department of Electronic Engineering, and Applied Physics at Stanford University. Regarding the discovery of “angel particles”, Zhang Shouqi said: “I want to thank the motherland for being strong now. Three of the four laboratories are continental backgrounds. We often have opportunities for communication, which has contributed to this cooperation.” In addition to the status of scientists Zhang Shouyi is also an investor. In 2013, in order to promote the common incubation of scientific and technological achievements between China and the United States, he established a venture capital company named “Danhua Capital”. Zhang Shouqi said: “Dan” is a pun, which stands for “Red Heart” and Stanford (also translated as “Stanford”); “Hua” refers to China. Zhang Shouyi said in an interview with the media that his life is the beneficiary of China’s reform, opening up and continuous development. In Zhang Zhang’s view, from the discovery of gravitational waves to the “angel particles” confirmed, the attention of ordinary Chinese audience to scientific discoveries It has reached a historic high level and is also beyond the domestic response in the same period, which is exciting.
