Chinese Academy of Sciences
Dr. KuiLIU got his PhD from the Institute of Metal Research (IMR), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1999. He is the leader of Materials for Special Engineering research group in the Division of Materials for Special Environment of IMR. He has published more than 40 papers and held more than 25 patents. He awarded high-rank national scientific and technological prizes for 3 times and got the “Innovations in Real Materials Award” on Superalloys with Low Segregation Controlled by Trace Elements in Washington, DC in 1998.
His main research interests lie in special melting and processing high purity reactive materials, the trace and minor element function on material properties. Some of his works like melting Ni base alloy, NiTi shape memory alloy, TiAl alloy have got significant progress with the support from his group and by international cooperation. And the results have got international recognition and award.
