The Key Laboratory of Advanced Materials of Ministry of Education

The Key Laboratory of Advanced Materials of Ministry of Education was founded in 1993. Currently, Prof. ZHANG Zhengjun is the director of the lab, and Prof. ZHU Jing is the chairman of the Academic Committee. The lab possesses a comprehensive set of advanced facilities for the preparation and characterization of a wide range of advanced materials.
At present, materials science, material physics and chemistry, the nuclear fuel cycle and related materials, and condensed matter physics, all of which belong to the lab, are national key disciplines. Over the years the lab has established itself as a multi-disciplinary research platform for the development of cross-disciplinary advanced materials.
The influence of the lab both in the domestic and international materials field is continually being strengthened, supported by the regular organization of international academic exchanges and collaborations. As a result the lab currently maintains routine exchange and cooperation in joint projects with a range of universities, research institutes and companies in many countries and regions. The lab also supports open projects for accepting visiting researchers both from within China and from overseas.
The main research areas in the Key Laboratory of Advanced Materials of Ministry of Education include:
Interaction of ion-beams with materials
Formation and evolution of material microstructure
New metal materials
Information and electronic materials
New polymer materials
Nuclear materials
Biomaterials and bionic materials
Ecomaterials
