Chinese Academy of Sciences passed away in China-Japan Friendship Hospital
in Beijing on 30th June 2011.
Professor Ying had been a renowned scientist and professor of physics, founder
and pioneer of physical acoustics and ultrasonics in China, the Former Director-
General of the Acoustical Society of China, one of the founders of Institute of
Acoustics, senior academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
He was educated in physics and graduated from Physics Department of

sonic laboratory in China. He is one of the founders of ultrasonics in China. His
early papers on ultrasonic scattering in solid materials (see the Fig. below), on
acousto-optic interaction including Bragg diffraction on surface waves and other
papers have become the foundation for the later development of ultrasonics.
