Zhensheng joined Kapteyn-Murnane group as a research associate in August, 2014. He got his BA and MS degrees in Physics from Fudan University (Shanghai, China) in 2008. Then, he moved to Michigan State University to pursue his Ph. D degree, and was awarded in 2014. At MSU, he worked with Dr. Chong-yu Ruan on the ultrafast electron diffraction, which enables the studies on the materials’ structural dynamics with a sub-ps temporal resolution. At K-M group, his research interest switches to the ultrafast dynamics of the electronic structures in the solid-state materials that exhibit exotic emergent phenomena, which includes transition metal oxides, charge-density-wave materials, high-temperature superconductors, etc. From the time-resolved optical and electronic spectroscopy, he intends to resolve the fundamental driving mechanisms of these emergent and important phenomena. His researches are enabled by the recent development of the coherent EUV source at K-M group, which serves as a powerful light source for the experiments like angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and other soft X-ray spectroscopy.
