He has over 80 publications, some of them were published in Science, Advanced Materials, and Small. He has received CAS Pioneer Hundred Talents Program (2016), and A3 Best Poster Award (2012).

Abstract: Artificial muscle yarns have emerged as a new type of intelligent material and attracted considerable attention. I will give a talk on our recent research progress made in artificial muscle yarns, mainly focusing on addressing the challenges of actuation precision control and actuation feedback. Deploying the faradaic insertion and extraction reactions to drive a CNT yarn muscle allows tetrachloroaluminate ions as a strong but dynamic "locker" to achieve an energy-free high-tension catch state and programmable stepwise actuation. When powered off, the muscle nearly 100% maintained any achieved strokes under loads of 96,000 times the muscle weight. This mechanism allowed the programmable control of stroke steps down to 1%. By wrapping a CNT fiber core in sequence with an elastomer layer, a nanofiber network, and an MXene/CNT thin sheath, we prepared an artificial neuromuscular fiber that achieves a ingenious sense-judge-act intelligent system in an elastic fiber. This would provide a promising solution for closed-loop control for future intelligent soft robots.

Abstract: Flexible wearable thermoelectric fibers and fabrics can collect energy from body heat and power wearable electronic devices by utilizing the temperature difference between human body and the outside environment. They can also be used for thermoelectric refrigeration to control body temperature, and even be used as a thermal sensor to monitor human body temperature in real time. Therefore, based on the large-scale thermal drawing fiber method, we achieved the seamless integration of high-performance inorganic thermoelectric materials and devices into a flexible fiber, and obtained large quantities of amorphous Cu-As-Te-Se, polycrystalline Bi2Te3, single crystal SnSe flexible thermoelectric fibers. These new flexible thermoelectric fibers not only overcome the disadvantages from electroplating, dip-dyeing and spinning technology, such as poor thermoelectric performance, low yield, poor mechanical properties, inability to wash, and poor stability caused by the shedding of thermoelectric materials during long-term use. In addition, they can be compatible with modern weaving process, and show the functions of temperature monitoring, thermoelectric power generation and refrigeration, realizing the real sense of flexible wearable thermoelectric fabrics.

Abstract: An optical blackbody is an ideal absorber for all incident optical radiation, and the theoretical study of its radiation spectra paved the way for quantum mechanics (Planck’s law). Herein, we propose the concept of an electron blackbody, which is a perfect electron absorber as well as an electron emitter with standard energy spectra at different temperatures. Vertically aligned carbon nanotube arrays are electron blackbodies with an electron absorption coefficient of 0.95 for incident energy ranging from 1 keV to 20 keV and standard electron emission spectra that fit well with the free electron gas model. Such a concept might also be generalized to blackbodies for extreme ultraviolet, X-ray, and γ -ray photons as well as neutrons, protons, and other elementary particles.

Abstract: The rapid development of portable and wearable electronics has stimulated ever-increasing demand for efficient energy-storage technologies. As an emerging class of energy supply devices for wearable electronics, fiber-shaped aqueous energy storage devices have attracted significant scientific and technical interest due to their inherent advantages of light weight, compactness and easy weavability. Although great advances have been achieved in the previously reported fiber-shaped asymmetric supercapacitors, their unstable discharge platform and low energy density are still serious hindrances for powering wearable energy-consuming devices. The construction of aqueous rechargeable batteries has proven an extremely effective strategy to achieve stable output voltage and high energy density. In our recent workwe mainly focus our research on synthesizing novel active materials and designing new device structures to fabricate high-performance fiber-shaped aqueous rechargeable batteries, which opens new opportunities for flexible energy-storage technologies.

Abstract: Shape memory polymers and their composites are smart materials with excitation response. They have the ability to maintain temporary shape and return to their original shape under specific external environment excitation (thermal, light, electrical, magnetic, pH, etc.). At present, shape memory polymers such as epoxy, cyanate ester, styrene, polyimide, polylactic acid, and polyurethane with adjustable glass transition temperatures have been developed. Smart structures prepared based on shape memory materials have unique shape memory properties and characteristics of lightweight and high strength and have the functions of active deformation, self-sensing, self-driving, and self-repairing.

Abstract: Aerogels are prepared from sol-gel processing to form the disordered but continuous gel networks and a special drying process to remove the solution components in the gel without changing its gelatinous structure, resulting in the porous, disordered, and low-density solid materials with a nanometer scale continuous network. Fiber is a morphological concept, meaning that the length is larger than the cross-section diameter and has a certain flexibility and robustness. Aerogel fibers are the specific embodiment of aerogel structure in fiber morphology. This presentation will illustrate how to obtain functional inorganic aerogel fibers, polymeric aerogel fibers and graphene aerogel fibers from various nanoscale building blocks, and demonstrate the application of these aerogel fibers in energy, textile and other fields.
