Research Area

Research interests include preparation, characterizations, and performances of the advanced structural/functional materials, biomimetic materials, and composites. Investigations focus on: (1) fabrication and properties of new ultra-high temperature thermal protection/insulation materials (fully dense, porous); (2) synthesis and characterization of high temperature ceramic matrix composites (powder, bulk); (3) novel photoelectric materials and devices (nanoscale phosphors, graphene quantum dot materials for information/laser display); (4) manufacturing and performances of biomimetic materials and functional films.
