Research and Development
Atomic, molecular and optical physics
Atomic and Molecular Physics is focused on the nonlinear phenomena in the interaction of molecules and intense laser, and on free electrons excited by high-order waves. High-order excitation is currently applied to synthesizing attosecond pulses. Because there are more controllable physical parameters in molecules than in atoms, extensive interest has been stimulated in molecular research. Another research field is photophysics of dipolar ultracold atoms. Integrated in 2005, this system includes solitons, group vibration, nonlinear band structure, statistical mechanics of ultracold atoms, the Adomian method for solution of the nonlinear equation, and the transport of optical pulses in ultracold atoms.
Soft Condensed Matter Physics
Soft Condensed Matter Physics is focused on particle dynamics in liquid, undercooled liquid and glass state; the aim is to explain the ultrafast laser spectroscopy of liquid and inelastic neutron and X-ray scattering. Currently, our studies include liquid water and liquid metal.
Organic Semiconductors Physics
Research related to Physics of Organic Semiconductors is centered on conjugated polymers based on physics as well as semiconductor devices. Conjugated polymers are a kind of organic semiconductors consisting of carbon chains. Because of their unique physical properties, they are regarded as promising new material for producing LED, laser, transistor and electro-optical devices.
Superconductivity and magnetism experiments
Superconductivity and magnetism experiments concentrate on researching superconductivity and magnetism in strongly correlated electron systems. In recent years, we have made significant contributions to the world with respect to the superconductive mechanism of numerous novel superconductors, such as: MgB2, MgCNi3 and NaxCoO2. Further studies on the magnetism in the membrane of manganese oxide have also been conducted.
Medium, High Energy and Cosmology
High energy physics includes particle astrophysics, cosmology, lattice field theory and effective field theory in QCD and electroweak symmetry breaking. The group investigates the acceleration mechanism of high energy cosmic rays, energy measurement, and the detection of high energy neutrinos. Development of high energy neutrino astronomy and experiments on neutrino oscillation in nuclear reactors are also covered in this field. The lattice field theory group employs both numerical and analytical methods to study non-perturbative aspects of quantum field theories and their application in particle physics phenomenology (details can be found at the group homepage).
