PARIS (VNS) — France's Ecole normale superieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan), a prestigious public institution of higher education and research, presented Vietnamese professor Nguyen Van Hieu with an honorary doctorate degree at a ceremony last Friday.
ENS Cachan Director Prof. Pierre-Paulo Zalio said that the honour was made in recognition of Hieu's research in physics, as well as his contributions to the co-operation between Viet Nam and France, particularly between Vietnamese universities and ENS Cachan.
Hieu has published 130 research works in quantum physics. From 1996 to 1999, he was a member of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics' Commission on Particles and Fields. — VNS
