Paul K. Chu (朱劍豪) is a specialist in plasma surface modification and materials science. He is Chair Professor of Materials Engineering at City University of Hong Kong.


He received his BS in mathematics (cum laude) from The Ohio State University in 1977 and his MS and PhD in chemistry from Cornell University in 1979 and 1982, respectively.

He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), American Vacuum Society (AVS), IEEE,[1] Materials Research Society (MRS), and Hong Kong Institution of Engineers. He is the recipient of the 2007 IEEE NPSS Merit Award which is the most prestigious award given by IEEE in the areas of nuclear and plasma sciences, 2008 MRS (Taiwan) JW Mayer Lectureship, and 2011 Shanghai Natural Science First Class Award.

He is chairman of the International Plasma-Based Ion Implantation Executive Committee which organizes the biennial International Workshop on Plasma-Based Ion Implantation and Deposition (PBII&D) and a member of the Ion Implantation Technology (IIT) International Committee that organizes the biennial International Conference on Ion Implantation Technology as well as the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Science Society Fellow Evaluation Committee.

He holds or has held advisory or visiting professorship in thirteen universities and research institutes in China, including the Institute of Microelectronics in Peking University, Department of Physics in Nanjing University, and Shanghai Institute of Ceramics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has established a joint PhD program with the University of Sydney in Australia.

Prof. Chu is associate editor of Materials Science and Engineering: Reports, and a member of the editorial board of Biomaterials, Advanced Materials Interfaces, Surface and Interface Analysis, Surface and Coatings Technology, Recent Patents on Materials Science, International Journal of Molecular Engineering, and Cancer Technology: Basic, Translational, and Clinical Research.


Prof. Chu has authored / co-authored more than 1,100 journal papers and given more than 100 plenary, keynote, and invited talks in international scientific conferences. He is also editor of 8 books on plasma science and engineering, biomaterials, and nanotechnology and co-authored more than 30 book chapters.
