Kun Huang,
Chinese physicist (Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province 02 September 1919 – Beijing 06
July 2005) Authored
over 50 papers and 5 books First to
predict diffuse xray scattering due to crystal defects known as Huang
scattering (proved in 1960s) Discovered the coupled vibratory modes between optical vibration and the electromagnetic field (concept of polariton) Proposed phenomenological equations to treat the long wavelength optical vibrations (Huang equations) Developed a
theory of radiative and nonradiative
multiphonon transition processes associated with lattice relaxation (HuangRhys
factor) First to
discover the coupled vibrations modes between optical vibration and the
electromagnetic field With Max Born developed Dynamical Theory of Crystal Lattices Eponym of HuangPekar
theory and BornHuang approximation HONORS Asteroid Huangkun 48636
