Appointment of a CAS Visiting Professor— Dr. WU Xiaoyu
On May 3, 2011, the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) appointed Dr. WU Xiaoyu as a CAS Visiting Professor.
WU Xiaoyu earned his doctoral degree in Physics at the Michigan State University (MSU), USA in 1991. Dr. WU is a Senior Fellow of National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at MSU. He is being engaged in accelerator physics research and is responsible for liaison between NSCL and IMP according to a memorandum signed by the two research institutions.
At the appointment ceremony, Prof. Xiao Guoqing, the director-general of IMP, anticipated that Dr. WU’s appointmentis a significant step forward towards furthering the cooperation between IMP and NSCL, especially in developing the high-power heavy ion superconducting linac technology with his vast expertise and experience in the field.
