Fu-Chun Zhang received his Ph.D. in physics from Virginia Tech in 1983. He is now a Professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, where he serves as the director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Sciences. A condensed-matter theorist, his research interests cover strongly correlated electron systems, unconventional superconductivity, and topological matter. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society, and in 2011 he was recognized as one of their Outstanding Referees.

Strongly Correlated Materials

Viewpoint: A Laser-Sharp View of Electron Correlations

A high-resolution photoemission experiment provides an unprecedented test of a theory describing the effects of strong electron correlations in solids. Read More »
