Lecturer of Hue College of Pedagogy

Putting Hue on the map of Physics research

By the end of July 2018, the Young Researchers Awards of Vietnam Theoretical Physics Society has added a new owner. It is worth noticing that the winner was at the age of 35 whereas his research was considered excellent by professional experts. Tran Viet Nhan Hao, who was born in 1983, is a Doctor, lecturer at College of Pedagogy, Hue University.

Dr. Tran Nhan Hao has been spending a lot of time on scientific research.

Devotion to his career path

Eight years ago (2010), Tran Viet Nhan Hao surprised many by completing his doctoral dissertation at the age of 27 at the University of Bordeaux 1 (France). Six years later, this young man from Hue finished his dream of doing Postdoctoral Research at Texas A&M University, USA (since 2016).

In the meeting after his receiving the award, Dr. Tran Nhan Hao recalled that the learning process was his premise to follow the path of doing scientific research. However, to achieve this success, he had to overcome many difficulties first. The three recent accolades of the Vietnam Theoretical Physics Society were the solid evidence. Tran Viet Nhan Hao has been pursuing the field of Nuclear physics for 14 years (2015 - 2017).

He shared that this field of research was very complex. At the beginning of the research, Dr. Tran Nhan Hao and his colleagues (Dr. Bui Minh Loc, Ho Chi Minh City University of Pedagogy and Dr. Nguyen Hoang Phuc, Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute, Hanoi) had to do a lot of work including the calculation of the scattering cross section of the nucleon (nuclei constituting the nucleus) on the oxygen and lead nuclei, thereby confirming the distribution of the scattering angles with the empirical data. The value of the work lied in the development of calculation method which improved the efficiency of the process. This method can also be used to calculate other non-durable nuclei.

Guiding students to practice

Prof. Le Van Hoang, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Physics, University of Pedagogy, HCMC, a member of the award Council, said that the work of Dr. Tran Viet Nhan Hao was outstanding with high scientific value, which was published in the world's leading prestigious journal on Nuclear physics (Physical Review C).

The Young Scientist Award of the Vietnam Theoretical Physics Society is awarded annually, with a maximum of two awards per year. Before Dr. Tran Viet Nhan Hao, only nine researchers received this award.
