Ten solid state physicists from the People's Republic of China visit the Physics Department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

In spring of 1975, the Department of Physics was honored to host a delegation of ten solid state physicists from the People's Republic of China. As part of a five-week tour of eleven U.S. universities and institutions sponsored by the committee on Scholarly Communication with the People's Republic of China, the Chinese physicists spent two days in the Department of Physics and the Materials Research Laboratory exchanging ideas and information on current developments in solid state physics. Specifically, their interests were crystal growth and structure, semiconductors, solids under high pressures and high temperatures, and magnetic materials and their applications. Deputy leader of the delegation was the well-known Kun Huang, co-author with Max Born of the Dynamical Theory of Crystal Lattices (Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1954).
