Ultrafast High-Temperature Sintering for Materials Discovery and Manufacturing



3:30pm - 4:30pm ET


Meeting ID: 978 0345 6328
Passcode: 962313

Research on extreme high-temperature (2000–3000 K) synthesis as a disruptive platform for inventing and manufacturing novel materials, from single-atom, high-entropy nanoparticles (Science 2018, 359, 1489, Cover) to high-performance battery membranes (Science 2020, 358, 521).

About the Speaker(s)

Liangbing (Bing) Hu
Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Center for Materials Innovation at U Maryland, College Park

Liangbing (Bing) Hu

Liangbing Hu received his BS in physics from the University of Science and Technology of China where he worked on colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) materials. He did his PhD at UCLA, focusing on carbon-nanotube-based nanoelectronics. In 2006, he joined Unidym, Inc. as a co-founding scientist, leading the development of roll-to-roll printed carbon nanotube films and device integration in touch screens, LCDs, flexible OLEDs, and solar cells. He did his postdoc at Stanford University where he worked on various energy storage technologies using nanomaterials/nanostructures. Currently, he is a Herbert Rabin Distinguished Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. His research group focuses on materials innovations, device integrations, and manufacturing in general, with ongoing research actives on wood nanotechnologies, 3000 K extreme materials, and beyond Li-ion batteries.
