Research Description

Dr. Shen directs a lab in the Departments of Physics and Applied Physics at Stanford University. His research focuses on condensed matter and materials physics. He develops photon based experimental techniques and applies them to frontier science problems, ranging from angle-resolved photoemission to microwave imaging, soft x-ray scattering and time domain spectroscopy. His team has made important discoveries of anomalous energy gaps in high temperature superconductors. Dr. Shen has further leveraged the advanced characterization tools to make better materials through thin film and interface engineering. He has won numerous awards, including the Centennial Lecture of the American Physical Society, the Kamerlingh Onne Prize, the E.O. Lawrence Award by Department of Energy, the Oliver E. Buckley Prize by the American Physical Society and the Einstein Professorship from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was recently elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Shen earned his PhD from Stanford University.
