Professor C.D. Lin, JSPS Visiting Fellow, Carries out Research in Japan During His Sabbatical Leave
As a JSPS Visiting Fellow, besides
carrying out collaborative research during his sabbatical leave, Professor
Chii-Dong Lin has visited and given seminars at a number of top "Imperial"
universities, such as Tokyo University, Tohoku University in Sendai, and Nagoya
University, as well as the top national laboratory RIKEN. These are the major
centers in Japan doing Ultrafast AMO physics.
His stay at University of Electro-communications ended with a seminar which was interrupted by an earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale. The lecture was given in a room on the 8th floor and the sway lasted for more than one minute. While this was rather scary, Dr. Lin trusted the building codes in Japan and thankfully, no structure damage was seen at all.
