Professor, Department of Physics, UC Berkeley

Dr. Feng Wang is a professor of physics at the university of California, Berkeley. He received a B.A. from Fudan University, Shanghai, in 1999 and a Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2004. From 2005-2007, he has been a Miller Fellow with Miller Institute for Basic Science at Berkeley. He joined the physics faculty in fall, 2007.

His research interests have been in light-matter interaction in condensed matter physics, with an emphasis on novel physical phenomena emerging in nanoscale structures and at surfaces/interfaces. When electrons and phonons are confined in nanometer scale or at surface/interfaces, they respond differently to external stimuli. He investigates the unique nature and dynamics of such excited states using advanced laser spectroscopy techniques. His group’s laser spectroscopy has sensitivity down to individual nanostructures, together with time resolution of femtoseconds and spectral coverage extending from far-infrared, visible to UV.

He has been awarded the Sloan Fellowship, Outstanding Young Researcher Award of Overseas Chinese Physics Association, International Union of pure and Applied Physicists (IUPAP) C10 Young Scientist Prize, Hellman Family Faculty Award, Packard Fellowship, and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
