He Duohui, male, born in February 1939, a native of Yilong County, Sichuan Province, currently works as a research professor and doctoral supervisor at the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Prof. He was elected Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 1995.
Prof. He joined the faculty of USTC after his graduation from the Department of Modern Physics, University of Science and Technology of China in 1964. He served successively as the vice chairman of the Department of Modern Physics from 1973 through 1977, the technical director of National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory Project from 1978 through 1991, the vice director of the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory from 1992 through 1996. Prof. He also served two consecutive terms as Executive Director of the Particle Accelerator Society of China from 1984 to 1988 and from 1988 to 1992 respectively. Since 1996, Prof. He has served two consecutive terms on the post of Deputy Director-General of the Particle Accelerator Society of China. He is now the vice chairman of the Academic Committee of University of Science and Technology of China.
Prof. He’s main research area covers accelerator physics and technology, and free electron laser. As one of the pioneers in synchrotron radiation field in China, Prof. He has made valuable contributions to the development of synchrotron radiation facilities and to training qualified scientists. He and his colleagues proposed the development of China’s first dedicated synchrotron radiation facility-Hefei synchrotron radiation source in 1977. After the approval of the project, he was in charge of the R&D, design, construction and commissioning of the light source from 1978 through 1991. The facility was completed in 1991, and users operation started in 1992. The performance of this light source proved to be quite good. Prof. He was a recipient of the first prize of the Award for Major Achievements in Science and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1981, the special class prize of the Award for Progress in Science and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1992, the first prize of the National Science and Technology Progress Award in 1995, the third prize of the Natural Science Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995, as well as the second prize of the National Science and Technology Progress Award in 1999
