I am glad to know "Charles Kao Kwan" who won the Nobel Prize for physics. It is a great support for students who are studying "Applied Physics".
Charles Kao Kwan was born in Shanghai, moved to Hong Kong during his secondary education, and then further studied in England. He returned to Hong Kong and to be the President of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (retired since 1996).
His study on "calculating how to transmit light over long distances through optical glass fibres" was done in the United States in 1966.
