Recent News

July 10, 2015. The international collaboration team of Prof. Ruslan Valiev (Ufa State Aviation Technical University) and Prof. Yuntian Zhu has been chosen as the winner of the Somiya Award 2015 by the International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS), for their collaborative research on "Resolving the Paradox of Superior Strength and Ductility of Ultrafine-Grained Metals Through Nanostructuring Design."

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.
