Prof. Yoon Hee Jeong (Dept. of Physics) was presented with the ATPC 2016 Significant Contribution Award at the 11th Asian Thermophysical Properties Conference (ATPC) held in Yokohama, Japan. The Significant Contribution Award was established in 2010 to recognize scientists who have achieved great accomplishments in thermophysical properties research.   

Prof. Jeong earned his doctoral degree in physics at the University of Chicago and was a post-doctoral researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has been a faculty member at POSTECH since 1988. His research focus includes, but is not limited to, laser molecular beam epitaxy, ferromagnetic and ferroelectric thin films, and calorimetry and x-ray scattering. 

ATPC, along with the European Conferences on Thermophysical Properties (ETCP) and the Symposium on Thermophysical Properties (STP) in the US, is one of the three world-wide conferences on thermophysical properties. Each of the conferences is successively held every three years. The Significant Contribution Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed by the ATPC.
