Research Profile

Liang-Jian ZOU : Oversea Talents Project of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Professor in Institute of Solid State Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences。He obtained the Bachelor degree of Science in Sichuan University in 1988, and the Master degree of Science and the PhD degree of Science in 1991 and 1998, respectively, in the Institute of Solid State Physics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences. As a visiting scholar, visiting scientist and professor, he visited the Department of Physics of Chinese University of Hong Kong, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Italy, the University of Illinois at Urbana and Champaign(UIUC)、Los Alamos National Laboratory(LANL)and the Masschusett Institute of Technology(MIT)for many times, and performed the postdoc research in the International Centre for Theoretical Physics(ICTP)。He has published more than 50 research papers in Phys. Rev. B, J. Appl. Phys., J. Phys. CM and other physical journals,and issued a chapter for a book on superconductor。Major Achievements: he for the first time showed that the electronic phase separation is stable in the groundstate of doped manganites,and proved that the orbital ordered and spin-density-wave phase are more favorable of the stability of phase separated ground state;proposed a composite polaron theory for the colossal magnetoresistance in doped manganites;proved that the key role of electronic correlations in the Fermi surface topology and groundstate properties in triangular lattice NaxCoO2;demonstrated the important roles of the interorbital hopping, spin correlation on the multiorbital metal-insulator transitions in strongly correlated system;clearly showed that the ferromagnetic long range order in diluted semiconductors originates from a double exchange-like interaction;found that in nanosized metallic particles the spontaneous magnetization, magnetic susceptibility, and magnetic moment of impurity are the universal function of the ratio of the average level space near Fermi surface and the Fermi energy; etc.。Major Research Interests: (1) Orbital order and orbital related properties in strongly correlated electron systems, and the application of synchrotron radiation in solids;  (2) Unconventional superconductivity, quantum magnetism and quantum phase transitions;  (3) Developing new calculation method for the properties of correlated electronic systems; (4) magnetism in nanostructure and mesoscopic materials。
