ZHU Bangfen was elected as academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2003 and became a fellow of Institute of Physics in 2012. Once acting as the visiting professor at many internationally famous universities, now he is the vice president of Chinese Society of Physics and chief editor of Chinese Physics Letters. During his life, he won many grand prizes, including the second prize of state natural science award (1 program), first prize of natural science award of CAS (1 program), second prize of natural science award of CAS (2 programs), first prize of the 8th session of Chinese Excellent Science and Technology Books and distinguished young scholars of Hong Kong Facts Science and Technology Foundation, etc. He together with Mr. Huang Kun established the semiconductor superlattice optical phonons theory, which was named as “Huang-Zhu Model” by the international academic circle and produced relatively great influence in the world. His research is in the multi-disciplinary area of condensed matter physics theory. Special attention is paid to the electronic and phonon structure in low-dimensional semiconductor systems and nanostructures, and the ultrafast optical process in semiconductors.
