Biography » famous scientists » daniel c tsui


Daniel Tsui received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of                             
Chicago in 1967. He was elected to the National Academy of Science in 1987, is a             
fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for the             
Advancement of Science, and a recipient of its Buckley Prize for condensed                   
matter physics. In 1998 he received the Nobel prize in Physics for his discovery             
of the fractional quantum Hall effect and the Benjamin Franklin Award in Physics.
