Speech Title: Advances in CrCoNi-based medium-entropy alloy coatings. (CrCoNi中熵合金塗層的進展)

Abstract: This talk reviews new advances in high/medium entropy alloys coatings, focusing on the combat with strength-ductility trade-off. Introduced ultra-strong nanostructured CrCoNi medium-entropy alloy coating, and discussed interface strengthening + Metastability engineering to develop hard yet tough CrCoNi-based medium-entropy nitride coating


Professor Sam Zhang Shanyong(張善勇), FRSC, FTFS, FIoMMM, better known as Sam Zhang, earned his Ph.D. degree in Ceramics in 1991 from The University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. He was a tenured full professor at Nanyang Technological University Singapore. Since January 2018, he joined School of Materials and Energy, Southwest University, China. He serves as the founding and current director of the Centre for Advanced Thin Films and Devices (http://fmae.swu.edu.cn/s/fmaenew/yjzx/).

Prof. Zhang’s research covers Energy Films and Coatings, Biological Materials and Hard Coatings. He has published 13 books and over 360 peer reviewed international journal papers with 31.3 citations per article and h-index: 56 and total citation of over 11,000 times as at 31 Oct 2021. (https://publons.com/researcher/2817766/sam-zhang/). His Materials Characterization Techniques has been adopted as core textbook by more than 30 American and European universities. His recent books were published at CRC Press in October 2020: Sam Zhang (ed),Materials for Energy, and in August 2021: Protective Thin Coatings Technology and Functional Thin Films. Currently Prof. Zhang is working on 3 new books to be published next year: “Materials for Devices”, edited by Sam Zhang, to be published by CRC press, 2022, “Materials in Advanced Manufacturing”, edited by Yingquan Yu and Sam Zhang, to be published by CRC press, 2022 and another 4-volume “Materials for Energy Handbook” in Chinese to be published by Chongqing University Press, 2022 (張善勇(Sam Zhang)編著【能源材料手冊】,重慶大學出版社,2022 )
