Ying Jiang named American Physical Society Fellows for 2019

Recently, Prof. Ying Jiang of International Center for Quantum Materials (ICQM) of Peking University has been elected Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) by the APS Council of Representatives at its September meeting. Ying Jiang was nominated by the Division of Chemical Physics (DCP) and selected based on his "seminal contributions advancing the scanning probe microscopy and spectroscopy of water molecules, and to the understanding of structure and dynamics of interfacial water and hydration at the atomic scale."

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication, or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society.

Fellowship is a prestigious honor signifying recognition of one's research and leadership by one's professional peers. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society’s membership (excluding student members) is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow of the American Physical Society.



Ying Jiang, Boya Distinguished Professor of Physics, Peking University. He received his PhD from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2008. After working as a Postdoctoral Associate in University of California, Irvine (2008-2010), he joined International Center for Quantum Materials, Peking University as a tenure-track assistant professor, and was promoted to full professor in 2018. He has published nearly 50 peer-reviewed papers, including 2 in Science, 3 in Nature, and 8 in Nature Journals. He has delivered over 70 invited talks (including 8 plenary/keynotes talks) in a number of international conferences (ACS, APS, AVS, ICN+T, etc). He was awarded Outstanding Young Scientist (2012), Cheung Kong Young Scholar (2016), IOP-JPhys Emerging Leaders (2016), Distinguished Young Scholars of NSFC (2017), Tan Kah Kee Young Scientist Award (2018), China-Youth Science and Technology Award (2018), Leading Innovative Talent in the Science and Technology (2019). His research works were selected as Top-ten Science Advances in China (2016, 2018). He serves on the Editorial Boards and Editorial Advisory Boards of 6 international journals, including Advanced Quantum Technologies, Chemical Physics, Chinese Physics B, etc. Ying Jiang's research field is Condensed Matter Physics and Chemical Physics. He is an expert in advanced scanning probe microscopy/spectroscopy and focused on the atomic-scale properties and ultrafast dynamics in single molecules and low-dimensional materials.
