报告人简介：Ying Liu, professor of physics at Pennsylvania State University and Hongwen Professor of Physics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (part-time), received his BS degree from Peking University in 1982. He earned a MS degree, under the direction of Professor Zhao-Qing Zhang at Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing in 1984. Prof. Liu did his Ph. D. thesis research under the direction of Professor Allen M. Goldman at University of Minnesota, and received his Ph.D. degree in 1991. After three-year postdoctoral research at University of Colorado, Boulder, Prof. Liu joined the faculty of Department of Physics of the Pennsylvania State University in 1994, becoming tenured full professor in 2005. His research has focused on the study of low-dimensional and unconventional superconductors, in particular, odd-parity, spin-triplet superconductor Sr2RuO4. He also worked on graphene, topological insulators, 2D crystals of transition metal oxides and chalcogenides, as well as strongly correlated electronic systems. Professor Liu received an NSF Career Award in 1997 and was selected as a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2006. He was awarded an Outstanding Young Investigator (Type B) award from National Science Foundation of China and a Chang Jiang Lecturer Professorship from Chinese Ministry of Education.
