Chair Professor S T Lee of the Department of Physics and Materials Science at City University of Hong Kong has been shortlisted to join the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) as Academician. He is one of 145 candidates, six of whom are from Hong Kong, nominated this year. One other distinguished researcher at CityU, Professor David Tong, Deputy President, was elected Academician of CAS in December 2001.   


Professor Lee has been nominated for his significant contributions to the fields of superdiamond technology, nanoscience and organic electroluminscence. He is the Director of the Centre of Super-Diamond and Advanced Films (COSDAF) at CityU and the Founding Director of the Nano-organic Photoelectric Laboratory, The Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, CAS. He is adjunct professor at several universities in mainland China, including PekingUniversity, FudanUniversity, and Zhejiang University.


After receiving his bachelor’s from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, his master’s from the University of Rochester, and his PhD from the University of British Columbia, Professor Lee worked as a Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry, University of California and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. He joined CityU in 1994.
