Recent News

May 6, 2015. NC State University released a news entitled as ‘Microcombing’ Creates Stronger, More Conductive Carbon Nanotube Films which is based on a paper published by Dr. Zhu and his colleague: “Strong and Conductive Dry CNT Films by Microcombing,” which was published online on May 4 in Small.

March 18, 2015. Dr. Zhu is awarded the 2015 TMS Leadership Award at the 2015 TMS Annual Meeting In Orlando, Florida. The citation read: "For outstanding leadership in the area of deforamtion physics and properties of nanostructured materials." This award recognizes "exceptional leadership in the national and international metallurgy and materials field."

Oct. 27, 2014. Weizong Xu suceeefully defended his Ph.D. thesis

Oct. 15, 2014. Dr. Zhu received the ASM International Albert Sauveur Achievement Award at am award ceremony at the MS&T meeting in Pittsburg, OH on Oct. 14, 2014.  The citation reads:“For pioneering work on the fundamental understanding of deformation physics in nanocrystalline materials.” This award, which was established in 1934, recognizes pioneering materials science and engineering achievements that have stimulated organized work along similar lines to such an extent that a marked basic advance has been made in materials knowledge.

July 2, 2014. NC State University released a news entitled as Inspired by Nature, Researchers Create Tougher Metal Materials which is based on two paper published by Dr. Zhu and his colleague: “Synergetic Strengthening by Gradient Structure,” which was published online July 2 in Materials Research Letters, and “Extraordinary strain hardening by gradient structure,” which is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

June 20, 2014. Dr. Zhu has been listed in "Highly Cited Researchers 2014" by Thomson Reuters, which is based on the "number of highly cited papers in one of 21 broad fields, 2002-2012. Highly cited papers rank in the top 1% by citations for their field and year of publication." Dr. Zhu is among 147 Thomsom Reuters Highly Cited Researchers in the field of materials science. Thomson Reuters owns the "Web of Science", which generates the well-known ISI citations. More information can be found here.
