Physicist’s Research Gains International Attention

Dr. Zenghu Chang, UCF Distinguished Professor of Physics & Optics, recorded the shortest pulse of light in his UCF lab. Physics World recently interviewed Chang for their publication, which you can view here. Physics World is the British equivalent of Physics Today, which is published in the US.Screen shot 2013-04-19 at 11.33.21 AM

“Dr. Chang’s success in making ever-shorter light pulses helps open a new door to a previously hidden world, where we can watch electrons move in atoms and molecules, and follow chemical reactions as they take place,” said Michael Johnson, the dean of the UCF College of Sciences and a physicist.

Chang is currently working in the area of attosecond optics and physics. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society. After receiving a doctorate at the Xi’an Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 1988, he served as an associate professor at this intuition for the next three years before visiting the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK. He conducted research at the Center for Ultrafast Optical Science at the University of Michigan for more than five years and came to UCF in 2010.
