On July 4th, 2019, at the invitation of Quantum Thermal Transport and Energy Science Group, Prof. Jun Zhou from Center of Phonons and Thermal Science, School of Physical Science and Engineering, Tongji University, give a speech about“Transport in Complex Solids” . The speech was chaired by Prof. Zhang Lifa, Dean of the School of Physical Science and Technology.
The speech was held at 2:00 pm in lecture hall437 of Xingjian Building. Relevant teachers and graduate students attended the academic lecture. Prof. Jun Zhou introduced recent progress of electrical transport, thermal transport and thermoelectric transport in complex solids (such as inorganic amorphous materials, inorganic composites, micro/nanoscale materials, etc.) and related theories and methods (such as Green's function, Monte Carlo method, dynamical mean field theory, molecular dynamics and first-principle calculations, etc.). After the speech, Prof. Jun Zhou answered the questions raised by teachers and students in details.
Professor Jun Zhou 's resume:
Jun Zhou is a professor and PHD supervisor at the Center of Phonons and Thermal Science, School of Physical Science and Engineering, Tongji University. In 2004, he obtained the bachelor degree in physics from the School of Gifted Yong, University of Science and Technology of China.
