International workshop on wave functional materials 2013 Held in Suzhou





International workshop on wave functional materials 2013 was successfully held in Suzhou from November 9th to 11th. It was co-organized by the School of Physical Science and Technology and the Laboratory of wave functional materials.


The Study of wave functional materials is one of the cutting-edge topics involving physics, materials science, optical engineering, and electronics. Scholars both at home and abroad attach much attention to it. It covers several research directions including electromagnetic metamaterials, nanophotonics, crystal, and acoustic metamaterials. More than 60 scholars attended it, including Professor Ross McPhedran, a member of the  Australia Academy of Sciences, from University of Sydney; Professor Kazuaki Sakoda from Japan National Institute for Materials; Professor Nicholas Fang from MIT; Professor Jensen Li from University of Birmingham; Professor Ping Shen, editor of the journal of New J. Phys., from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; Professor C. T. Chan, executive president of the Institute for Advanced Study, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and editor of the journal of EPL. In addition, more than 10 Changjiang Scholars or Outstanding Youth winners and a group of young scholars also attended the workshop and made wonderful academic reports.


The success of the workshop shows that the Soochow University scholars’ high level in syudying electromagnetic metamaterials. Meanwhile it helps to expand the international visibility and influence of the School of Physical Science and Technology, Soochow University.
