Research(研究兴趣)

  1. Magnesium alloys; we use First-principles calculations plus TEM to study the twinning, stacking fault, precipitation and LPSO in the alloys.
  2. Phase transition; we use Landau theory and First-principles calculations to to study the continuous phase transition and first order phase transition in important metallic alloys, such as Aluminum alloys and irons.
  3. 2D materials; we focus on bandgap and edge states control.
