Professor Shih-I Chu, from NTU Department of Physics in the College of Physics, Was Selected for The Member of physics by TWAS

TWAS (The Academy of Science for the Developing World) has just given a great honor to Professor Shih-I Chu, from NTU Department of Physics in the College of Physics, by selecting him the member of TWAS in the professional field of physics. All the faculty and students in the NTU College of Physics are so proud of Professor Shih-I Chu, and this honor also made NTU College of Physics shine with more great academic researches recently.

TWAS was established back in the year of 1983. It has been focusing on assisting and helping the developing countries to work on scientific researches with the related development applied in hopes that they can put what they learned into practice. Up to date, there have been 1,000 members in TWAS from 95 countries around the world. Every year, TWAS selects new members according to these eight professional fields: agricultural sciences, engineering sciences, chemical sciences, mathematical sciences, physics, biology, medical and health sciences, earth sciences. Thus, in the professional field of physics, Professor Shih-I Chu was selected for the member in TWAS this year.

Those who are qualified enough to be selected for the members in TWAS are prestigious scholars who has been presenting outstanding research results with their great contributions to the developing countries. Being selected means a lot for each scholar’s academic reputation as well as his/her country being supportive to the developing countries’ scientific researches constantly in consistence. Moreover, this honor represents the great humanity concerning the caring spirit to the whole world.

Professor Shih-I Chu has been well acknowledged as the top expert in the academic field of quantum science and computer science. He has already proposed and presented many innovative theories and precise methods of calculation using computer science over the past years in his academic career. As the most recognized scholar and the top expert in his academic field, he has been doing pioneering contributions to the academic fields of chemical physics, astronomy and space sciences, quantum sciences, atomic and molecular sciences, high-filed physics, atomic and molecular collisions, TDDFT (time dependent density functional theory), molecular chaos.

One of Professor Chu’s most important contributions is on the basic foundation and the development of high-field atomic and molecular physics. Back in the year of 1977, Professor Shih-I Chu proposed the theory of Non-Hermitian Floquet, well known as the first masterpiece theory in the research field of experimenting the non-perturbation theory of atomic and high-field laser. Later in his professional
