192. Peking University - School of PhysicsIn 1913, the "WuLi Men" (physics division) was established at Peking University, and this was later renamed the Department of Physics in 1919. With the reorganization of the Chinese system of higher education in 1952, the new Physics Department of Peking University was created from the merger of the physics departments of Peking University, Tsinghua University and Yenching University. This became the premier center for physics in China. The School of Physics was established in 2001, and includes not only the traditional fields of study in physics, but also related physical Sciences. Today, the School of Physics includes Physics, Astronomy, Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences, and Nuclear Science & Technology and consists of eleven divisions and seven related research institutes, including the State Key Laboratory for Artificial Microstructure and Mesoscopic Physics and the State Key Laboratory of Nuclear Physics and Technology.
It has been nearly 100 years since Peking University established its Department of Physics. The Department's founding in 1913 was not only an announcement of the importance that Peking University placed on the physical Sciences, but also a milestone in the development of modern Science in China. One hundred years on, the School has made distinguished contributions to the nation and to the world in both education and academia. As it embarks on its second century, the Peking University School of Physics extends a warm welcome to distinguished scholars and outstanding young students from China and abroad who wish to join its ranks.
To celebrate its centennial, the School of Physics creates the distinguished lecture series: Centennial Physics Lectures at Peking University starting in 2010. The lecture series will be held once each semester. Eminent scholars around the world will be invited to present lectures on both fundamental and cutting-edge problems in physics, astronomy, and atmospheric and oceanic Sciences. We hope that this lecture series will establish a thought-provoking forum, stimulate lively and topical intellectual debates, strengthen global and interdisciplinary collaborations, promote the advancement of physical Sciences, extend the distinguished and innovative scholarly tradition at Peking University.
The Peking University School of Physics now has the following divisions and related research institutes.

194. Physics TodayPhysics Today, the flagship publication of The American Institute of Physics, is the most influential and closely followed physics magazine in the world, informing readers about Science and its place in the world with authoritative features, full news coverage and analysis, and fresh perspectives on technological advances and ground-breaking research.
Physics Today Online serves as Physics Today's home on the Internet, presenting the magazine's digital edition and continually building a valuable online archive. In addition, PTOL extends the magazine's coverage of the physical Sciences with the daily edition, unique online content from our editors and contributors.
Views expressed in Physics Today and on its website are those of the authors and not necessarily those of AIP or its member societies.
195. PLoS BiologyPLoS Biology is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal featuring research articles of exceptional significance in all areas of biological Science, from molecules to ecosystems.
196. Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM)The Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) is an interdisciplinary research center at Princeton University. Our mission includes graduate and undergraduate education and research, which will have a long-term impact on society. The key element of PRISM is the integration of the Sciences and engineering, with work spanning from fundamental theory through applications. PRISM interacts closely with industry, government laboratories and other academic institutions.
198. Princeton University - Department of Astrophysical SciencesThe department is one of the top graduate programs in astronomy and astrophysics. Students have access to cutting-edge computational facilities in the department and on campus, and to involvement in several exciting observational projects: the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the Atacama Cosmology Telescope, the Subaru HyperSuPrime Cam survey and the Subaru SEEDS exoplanet search. Students have a great deal of freedom to chose their research projects and areas, and work directly with the faculty in our lively and congenial department. Follow the links at the left to find out more.
199. Princeton University - Department of ChemistryThe Department of Chemistry is a vital, expanding hub of scientific inquiry with deep historic roots and a ready grasp on the future.
Housed in the world-class Frick Chemistry Laboratory newly opened in 2010, faculty and students work at the frontiers of Science where the lines between chemistry and other disciplines merge. They conduct collaborative, interdisciplinary research with the potential to produce anything from new molecules and forms of energy to advanced models of catalysis and innovative materials. They also are immersed in the classic pursuit of chemistry -- to examine the composition of substances and investigate their properties and reactions.
Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are invited and encouraged to pursue individualized programs. Their experience is enhanced by strong faculty mentoring and access to world-leading intellectual and physical resources. Undergraduates carry out research projects both in and out of the classroom in state-of-the-art facilities, working side-by-side with faculty and graduate students.
200. Princeton University - Department of GeoSciencesThe GeoSciences Department, together with its affiliated inter-departmental programs and institutes, serves as the central focus for the Earth, atmospheric, oceanographic, and environmental Sciences at Princeton. As such we encompass a rich diversity of scientific expertise and initiative that ranges, for example, from the measurement and modeling of global climatic change, to high-pressure mineral physics, to seismic tomographic imaging of the Earth's interior or the analysis of terrestrial and planetary tectonics.
