Journal Article



This conference on Femtochemistry, Femtobiology, and Femtophysics (Femto IX) was organized in Beijing during the period of August 8–13, 2009. The event was timely not only because of the rise of science and technology in China and neighboring Asian countries but also because of the cultural and economic transformation taking place in this ancient land of civilization. I have attended every conference in the series and was scheduled to attend this one, but because of a new national service, I had to be elsewhere. I wish to take this opportunity to thank Prof. ZHONG Dongping who was kind enough to present an overview lecture in my allocated time and to be more than generous in describing the contributions made at Caltech and which he now gives in his article published in this volume.
