Dr. Prof. Qianfeng Fang (Q.F. Fang), the director of the Laboratory of Internal Friction & Defects in Solids, Institute of Solid State Physics (ISSP), CAS.
1) High damping materials:
High damping materials with appropriate mechanical properties and high damping capacity are widely demanded in the field of noise elimination and vibration reduction, especially in navigation and aviation. The ongoing researches in the Lab focus on the preparation and characterization of Mn-Cu based high damping alloys and the Al, Cu, Mg-based composite damping materials.
1) Plasma facing materials:
Developments of novel nuclear devices call for high performance materials which can survive in the extreme service conditions. The ongoing researches in the lab focus on the preparation and characterization of W-based materials which are the candidate plasma facing materials applied in future fusion devices. The new synthesis methods, mechanical properties, thermal shock resistance, irradiation resistance are specially concerned.
Postdoc and graduate student positions are available in the lab. Students and postdocs with strong background in materials sciences, chemistry and physics are very welcome, especially those with hand-on experiences in materials preparation are highly preferred.
