January 18, 2013 Congratulation Prof. Richard N. Zare been given the China International Science and Technology Cooperation Award


Prof. Richard N. Zare has been given the China International Science and Technology Cooperation Award 

China honours five foreign scientists from the United States, Denmark, Japan and Canada for their contributions to Sino-foreign research cooperation on the award ceremony of China International Science and Technology Cooperation Award held in Beijing on Jan. 18, 2013.

Among the list are Richard N.Zare (United States), Flemming Besenbacher (Denmark), Lonnie Thompson (United States), Shin-ichi Kurokawa (Japan) and Michael L Phillips (Canada). 
The International Scientific and Technological Cooperation Award of the People's Republic of China is a national science and technology award established by the State Council. It is granted to foreign scientists, engineers, managers, or organizations that have made important contributions to China's bilateral or multilateral scientific and technological cooperation. 

Prof. Richard N. Zare, Honorary Professor of Tsinghua University, Member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and Foreign Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), is the Marguerite Blake Wilbur Professor in Natural Science at Stanford University. He is renowned for his research in the area of laser chemistry, resulting in a greater understanding of chemical reactions at the molecular level.


Professor Zare helps bring forward the cooperation and communication between the science foundations of China and America during his term as Chairman of the National Science Board of the United States. He has trained a group of high-level Chinese research talents and co-authored 169 articles with Chinese researchers, including as a co-supervisor for Dr. Huibin Wei of our research group.


Professor Zare has received numerous honors and awards. They include: Phi Lambda Upsilon's Fresenius Award (1974), Michael Polanyi Medal, the Gas Kinetics Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (1979), the APS Earle K.
