Zhu Qingshi, male, chemist, Ph.D. Supervisor, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, former president of University of Science and Technology of China, head of the Institute of Advanced Studies, was born in Feb. 1946 in Chengdu city, Sichuan Province. He graduated from Department of Modern Physics of USTC in 1968. He was the leader of research teams and head of the research section in Qinghai Institute of Salt Lakes, CAS and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS. He was elected as Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1991. He started teaching and researching in USTC in 1994 and directed the establishment of the Key Laboratory of Bond Selective Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was appointed as a Vice President of USTC in Aug.1996, Executive Vice President of USTC in Apr.1998, and President of USTC in June 1998 by the State Council and a member of Academic Degree Commission of the State Council in May 1999.
He was a visiting scholar in University of California, Santa Barbara and MIT, a visiting scientist in Brookhaven Lab, USA and National Research Council Canada, a visiting professor in Grenoble University, University of Dijon and University of Paris in France, and worked in Cambridge University, Oxford University and University of Nottingham as a visiting research fellow of Royal Society. He was the Achievement in Asia Award 1994 winner in Overseas Chinese Physics Association and won Thompson Memorial Prize established by Spectrochemica Acta, an internationally renowned academic journal, in 1994.
He did experimental and theoretical researches on high vibration states of molecule and achieved a series of significant findings of international leading level：1）In recent 20 years, spectral scientists have done lots of experiments in order to find out local mode vibration state of molecules, but none can be confirmed as long lived; while Prof. Zhu was the first to observe that local mode vibration of spherical top molecules like Alkyl silane and germanium, reduces the symmetry and causes significant change of the vibrational energy level structure, which is convincing to prove the long-lived local mode vibration. 2) theoretically proved that lacal mode vibration is the general trend of Xyn molecule stretching vibration in high vibration energy region, and the interation of Coriolis and Fermi will disappear or decease as molecules in local mode vibration.
