Compound Item Description
Title Paul Chu
Description Dr. Paul C. W. Chu was born in Hunan, China, and received his BS from Cheng-Kung University in Taiwan. After service with the Nationalist Chinese Air Force, he earned his MS from Fordham University and his PhD at the University of California at San Diego; all three degrees were in physics. After two years of industrial research with Bell Laboratories Dr. Chu held an academic appointment at Cleveland State University for nine years. He assumed his appointment at the University of Houston in 1979. At various times he also has served as consultant and visiting staff member at Bell Labs, Los Alamos National Lab, the Marshall Space Flight Center, Argonne National Lab, and DuPont. He served as the Director of the Texas Center for Superconductivity from 1987 to 2001. He currently serves as President of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and continues his appointment as T. L. L. Temple Chair of Science at the University of Houston. He has been working on superconductivity since his days with Bernd T. Matthias at the University of California at San Diego. In January 1987, he and his colleagues achieved stable superconductivity at -290°F, above the critical temperature of liquid nitrogen (-321 °F). Recently, they again observed stable superconductivity at a new record high temperature of –164 °F. Presently, he is actively engaged in the basic and applied research of high temperature superconductivity. His research activities extend beyond superconductivity to magnetism and dielectrics. He is a member of numerous scholarly organizations from both the United States and China. He has received numerous awards and honors including selection as the Best Researcher in the US by US News and World Report in 1990.
