C10 Young Scientist Prize 2017

Dr. Cui-Zu Chang, from the Francis Bitter Magnet lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been elected to be the Young Scientist Award winner for 2017 

“For the discovery of quantum anomalous Hall effect in magnetically doped 3D topological insulator films.”

Dr. Cui-Zu Chang

Dr. Cui-Zu Chang received his PhD in Condensed Matter Physics from Tsinghua University in 2013, and is a postdoctoral at Francis Bitter Magnet lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since graduation.  His research interests are quantum coherent systems such as topological insulators (TI) and in particular topics such as quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) effect, layered 2D materials, interface superconductivity, triplet superconductivity and tunneling phenomena. A pioneer in observing QAH in a 3D TI, he is well-known and leading young expert in the rapidly developing field of TI with many highly cited publications in the field and worldwide collaborations. He holds several awards including the Switzerland Dimitris N. Chorafas Foundation Award (2013). He will start his assistant professorship at Department of Physics, Penn State University in Jan. 2017.
