Each semester ZGH will host a Keynote Perspective Talk where an outstanding researcher will present their perspective on an emerging research topic related to interface-dominated materials.
Materials Innovation and Manufacturing for Sustainability by Prof. Dr. Liangbing Hu, Center for Materials Innovation, University of Maryland, USA
Abstract:In this seminar, I will briefly discuss my group’s motivations, research overview, and selective achievements in the following two topics:  Extreme high temperature (2000–3000 K) as a disruptive platform to design/synthesize novel materials, from single atom, high entropy nanoparticles (Science 2018, 359, 1489, Cover) and high performance battery membrane (Science 2020).  Wood nanocellulose as a material platform for designing new structures to manipulate ion, phonon, photon, and mechanical properties, with end applications in lightweight, energy-efficient transportation (super wood, Nature 2018, 554, 224), energy-efficient green buildings (cooling wood, Science 2019, 364, 760), and high-performance membranes for the water-energy nexus and solid-state batteries (ionic wood, Nature Materials 2019, 18, 608; Nature 2021).
