Li Guixin wins Outstanding Young Scholar Award
Over the weekend, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) Associate Professor Li Guixin from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) was honored with one of the 2019 Outstanding Young Scholars Awards from the Qiu Shi Science and Technologies Foundation.
MSE Associate Professor Li Guixin is also a researcher in the Shenzhen Institute of Quantum Science and Engineering. On arriving at SUSTech in October 2016, he created a laboratory for optical materials and superstructure materials, which focuses on non-linear optics, optical superstructure materials, optical superstructure surfaces, and nano-optics. He has published more than 60 research papers in journals including Natural-Physics, Natural-Material Science, Natural-Nanotechnology, Natural-Communication and Physical Review Letters, and has been cited more than 3500 times. He has been granted five patents in the field of optical superstructure materials. Li Guixin is the executive director of the China Society of Metamaterials.
The Qiu Shi Science & Technologies Foundation was established by Mr. Cha Chi Ming (1914-2007) and his family in Hong Kong in 1994. It was named after the present Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, formerly known as Qiu Shi Academy. In Chinese, “Qiu Shi” means the pursuit of truth. The primary mission of the Foundation is to promote scientific and technological progress in China by recognizing and rewarding successful Chinese scientists and scholars.
In previous years, SUSTech has had previous winners, with President Chen Shiyi receiving the Outstanding Scientist Award in 2017 and Mechanics & Aerospace Engineering Associate Professor Wan Minping being awarded an Outstanding Young Scholar Award.
