Benchuan Lin
Assistant Researcher

Dr. Lin graduated with his Bachelor’s degree from USTC in theoretical physics, later got a PhD degree in condensed matter physics from Peking University. He is a summa cum laude graduate of Peking University and Beijing. He joined SUSTech as an assistant professor in July 2019. Dr. Lin conducted systematic low-temperature/ strong-magnetic-field experiments on low dimensional topological materials (i.e. topological semimetals, topological insulators, graphene). Now he focuses on topological superconductors, 2D ferromagnetic materials, low dimensional topological materials, etc.
