As professor and vice director of Peking University‘s Physics College, I am sincerely glad to recommend Mr. Antony Zhu to further his studies in the Physics Department of your university. Mr. Zhu has been a key member in the scientific research group I led.
As a researcher and vice-director of Peking University‘s Physics College, I am proud of such an excellent student. I taught him two important courses General Physics Experiment and Advanced Physics Experiment, in which Mr. Zhu has impressed me with his theoretical foundation in labwork. Mr. Zhu is a talented student in both studies and activities that demand strong hands-on abilities. Academically he not only scored excellent marks in classroom studies, but showed outstanding experimental abilities. Thanks to his strong interest and good marks in physics he joined a scientific research group I led when he was a third-year student while ordinary undergraduates do not start joining such groups until the fourth year. The research project focused on applying a resistance furnace to sinter the super conductor and measure it heat and resistance. In this work Mr. Zhu showed great patience and strictness required of a good laboratory experimenter. Particularly he showed very good creative thinking in the process. For example, to overcome inaccurate artificial recording, he proposed to measure the temperature and resistance by computer-control circuits instead of artificial work. Later, on the basis of analyzing the various experiment conditions, he successfully settled the problems in the design of circuits and procedures, greatly improving the measuring accuracy in the experiment. This showed that Mr. Zhu was already qualified for independent scientific research work. Another indication of Mr. Zhu‘s creativity is the project on new airplane energy in which he participated. This project was the only one in our department and one of the few in the entire Peking University that were qualified for final exhibit at the "Challenge Cup-Looking Ahead into the New Millennium" Creativity Contest for all-Beijing universities students.
Besides, I find in Mr. Zhu a rare independent personality and maturity. For example, he was admitted into the Computer Department of our university as a student holding two Bachelor‘s Degrees (one of which being Bachelor‘s Degree in E-Business) as he excelled both in physics and computer science. But eventually he gave up what other students would think a golden opportunity for a well-ensured high paid job. He calmly told me the reason: He prefers physics to computer studies.
This is what I would like to let you know about my impression about Mr. Zhu. I may say he is a credit to our college. I wish he would also be a credit to your university. Hereby I would like to reiterate my recommendation to you with great enthusiasm.
