UW Physicist Jiun-Haw Chu named Packard Fellow for research on quantum materials

Jiun-Haw Chu, a University of Washington Assistant Professor of Physics and faculty member at the UW’s Clean Energy Institute, has been named a 2018 Packard Fellow by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation for his research on quantum materials — substances that exhibit novel combinations of quantum-mechanical properties that could one day transform information technology. As a Packard Fellow, Chu will receive $875,000 in research funding over five years.

The Packard Fellowships for Science and Engineering have been awarded annually since 1988 to 18 early-career scientists, and are intended for innovative endeavors that may fall beyond the scope of traditional sources of funding. Fellows are chosen among a pool of 100 nominees — two each from 50 invited universities.
