Prof. Dongxiao Zhang elected as a 2017 recipient of SPE Honorary Membership

SPE is the largest individual-member organization serving managers, engineers, scientists and other professionals worldwide in the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry, with more than 164,000 members in 143 countries.

Prof. Qing Zhang’s team made big progress in small perovskite-based lasers

The research results are published in international authoritative journals: Advanced Functional Materials, Small Methods and the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.

Prof. Faxin Li’s group made a breakthrough in piezoelectric materials

They proposed a novel periodically orthogonal poling method for piezoelectric ceramics, which turns the nonlinear switching strain to be reversible and realized a giant actuation strain of 0.6% in the most widely used PZT ceramics, about 4 times of that in conventional PZT.

Prof. Yue Yang publishes research on the boundary-constraint method for constructing vortex-surface fields

The research progress entitled “The boundary-constraint method for constructing vortex-surface fields” was published in JOURNAL OF COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS.
