Qian, Sanqiang
                    Father of China's Atomic Bomb"

¡¡¡¡Qian claimed great fame as a distinguished Chinese scientist and founder of atomic energy science in China.

¡¡¡¡In 1937, Qian went to France to study Radium science under the tutorship of Curries. In the 11 years studying abroad, his love for the motherland had inspired him to scale many scientific heights of the time. Starting from the phenomenon that heavy at each extreme and light in between, Qian and his wife He Zhehui, also his collaborator, found that of about 300 atomic fissions, there is one that partitions into 3 blocks. The discovery of triopartion and quadripartion, first by He Zehui in the world, was regarded by the Curries as the most important work of the laboratory after the Second World War. The discovery of triopartion phenomenon in uranium has deepened human understanding of nuclear fission.

¡¡¡¡In 1948, giving up all comfort and superior working conditions abroad Qian returned to China with his wife and their six-month-old daughter. After the founding of the People's Republic, he took an active part in the founding of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and setting up of a base for nuclear energy research. By his commendable work in scientific research he had played an important role in pioneering the development of nuclear power and atomic and H-bombs in China. He had personally participated in all planning work, topic selection and base construction.

¡¡¡¡Qian had during his lifetime made indelible contribution to China's development of atomic and hydrogen bombs and its high-energy physics and had thus been honored as "Father of China's Atomic Bomb".
