Address: School of Physics and Astronomy, Sun Yat-Sen University, Tangjia, Zhuhai, Guangdong, 519082, P.R. China


Zhenhui He received his Ph. D degree Low Temperature Physics from University of Science and Technology of China in 1990, finished his post-doctoral study in TcSUH in 1993 and was a visiting scholar as an Alexander von Humboldt research fellow in 1998. He worked on the researches in high temperature superconductivity, weak signal measurement, and is working on space thermal physics. Since 2004, as technical director of SYSU team, he was in charge of the development of the tracker thermal control system (TTCS) of the AMS, an international collaboration program led by professor Samuel Ting. He also contributed to the design of the two-phase loop sub-system for evaporation and condensation experiment on the Tian Zhou I cargo spacecraft of China.

"Precision Thermal Control System for Large-scale Space Experiments Based on an Active Two-Phase Fluid Loop"  won the second prize of Science and Technology of  Guangdong  province (2016).
