Brief Biographical Sketch:

I received my college education in math and physics in Tsinghua University in China, then I came to Stanford to pursue my phd degree in applied physics. I believe that education and passing the knowledge to other people is an important part of "applied" physics. And I am looking forward to learn through my teaching as well.

S200: why superconductors are 'super'-conductors? in Splash! Fall 2008 (Oct. 18, 2008)
You might have already heard about "superconductor" somewhere, but do you know what makes those superconductors "super"? In this class, I will talk about some fundamental facts about superconductors, explain why we call them superconductors, what's special about them, and what those superconductors could do for us with their "super-power". I will also give a brief introduction about frontiers in the scientific research on superconductors. If time and condition permits, I will lead a trip to a superconductor lab on campus. (my lab)
