Prof. Yiquan Wu

Alfred University, USA

Invited talk
Fundamental studies on transparency of ceramic materials
Dr. Yiquan Wu is an associate professor of ceramics and materials science at the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He received his Master from Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, and Ph.D. from Imperial College London, England. His current research focuses on transparent ceramic materials for optical and photonic applications, as well as the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials for energy and biomedical applications. His research work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, European Union Marie Curie Program, national Laboratories, and industry. He is a recipient of several awards including the NSF CAREER award, the US AFOSR Young Investigator Award, Global Star Award of the American Ceramic Society, K.C. Wong Education Foundation Award, and the Presidential Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dr. Wu has published over 85 peer-reviewed articles on optical materials, thin
films, laser sintering, biomaterials, nanostructured materials, and advanced ceramics.

Some young Chinese Scholars are also invited to CICC-10 (see list)
