Dr. Zhao-Hui Zhang is an Associate professor in School of Materials Science and Engineering at Beijing Institute of Technology, China. He was born in China and went up to Luoyang Institute of Technology in 1990 and studied mechanical engineering. In 1994 he became a graduate student during his experimental research on polymer matrix composites. In 1997 Dr. Zhang went up to Beijing Institute of Technology and carried out the research on the numerical simulation of the microstructure evolution of heavy tungsten alloys in the spark plasma sintering (SPS) and hydrostatic extrusion (HE) process. This led to an interest in HE and numerical simulation and his first book was on this subject. Successively he published four books related to the numerical calculation method were in different publishing house. Dr. Zhang research experience also led his interest towards SPS methods. He obtained the Doctor Degree in 2000 and became a researcher and head of SPS Laboratory in Beijing Institute of Technology. He was also invited to visit Institute of Metal Materials of Tohoku University to carry out a research on the sintering mechanism involved in SPS process. Dr. Zhang was awarded as the Top Reviewer Award for exceptional contribution to the quality of Materials Characterization.

Research Interest: Lie in the use of spark plasma sintering (SPS) method to synthesize new materials such as metal matrix composites, ceramics, ultrafine grained materials and nano metals. He had successfully prepared large-sized nano Cu, nano Al metals (30 mm in diameter and 10 mm in thickness) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) reinforced titanium matrix composites (TMCs) with good mechanical and physical properties using SPS process. The tensile strength of MWCNTs/Ti composite containing a small amount of MWCNTs reached 1106 MPa, which was increased by 68.1% than that of pure Ti obtained at the same experimental conditions. He strongly believes that SPS is the mainstream development direction of the powder metallurgy techniques and it is becoming one of the most important methods for fabricating novel engineering materials. Now being head of SPS Laboratory in Beijing Institute of Technology he has built some interdisciplinary bridge for collaborative researches with material scientists and others. Dr. Zhang is also interested in the numerical simulation on the fabrication and deformation process of materials.

Among various electrical energy storage devices, electrochemical capacitors, aka super capacitors, are unique in terms of high power density, high charge-discharge cycle life, and wide temperature range operation. When the charges are stored on the surface of the electrodes in these capacitors, then these capacitors are known as Electrical Double Layer Capacitors (EDLC).

Using first principles approach, we calculated the structural, elastic, thermal and thermodynamic properties of semi conducting Gallium Phosphide (GaP). Quantum Expresso (QE) code with plane-wave pseudo potential approach to Density Functional Theory (DFT) and the more recently developed Generalized Gradient Approximation (GGA) scheme for solids (PBE sol) was utilized.

Machining processes always affect the surface of the machined components, whether this happens on purpose or not. The modification can have positive or negative influences on the functional performance and are usually denoted as Surface Integrity. For instance, residual stresses are known to occur in subsurface layers due to machining operations and may affect the life time of machined parts.

The biocompatibility of Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) archwires was investigated by simulating actual contact state of archwires around brackets, which enabled incorporation of realistic mechanical conditions into ex situ experiments. Specifically, archwires (undeformed, and bound to brackets on acrylic dental molds) were statically immersed in artificial saliva (AS) for 31 days.

Nanoporous palladium was created using highly loaded palladium hydride wires subjected to a fast electrical pulse of energy. The delivered energy was insufficient to melt an unloaded palladium wire. Electrical explosion experiments of palladium hydride wires were performed on single samples at the loading ratios ranging from 0.5 up to 0.96, approaching the highest experimentally achieved loading ratio of 1.

Crystal, electrical and electronic structure properties of the Erbium doped TiBO3 samples were investigated by X-ray Spectroscopic techniques. The experimental data were collected for the samples with different Er substitution ratios. To obtain better tools for analysis, XRD pattern results were supported by the collected Extended-XAFS (EXAFS) data, performed at the Synchrotron facility and conducted at room temperature.
