报告人介绍：Dr Jun Ding obtained Bachelor and PhD from University of Wuppertal and Bochum (Germany), respectively. He worked as Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia from 1991 to 1997. He moved to National University of Singapore in 1997. Now, he is working as Professor with Department of Materials Science & Engineering, National University of Singapore. He has been working on nanomaterials and magnetic materials over 30 years. Most recently, he has extended his research into additive manufacturing (3D printing).
报告摘要：Additive manufacturing (3D printing) provides opportunities for fabrication of geometry-complex structures and unique microstructures, which cannot be easily obtained using conventional manufacturing techniques. Recently, research and development of additive manufacturing has been shifted towards to functional devices/structures for high value-added applications such as aerospace, automobile, biomedicine, etc. Our research activities cover metallic and ceramic structures with the emphasis of design and functionalization for various applications, including aerospace, green energy and environmental. Surface functionalization through wet-chemical processes has been successfully used for metallic and ceramic structures with promising properties for electrocatalyst and other applications. Selective laser melting has been used for fabrication of metallic structures. For ceramic materials, our focus is the development of printable paste for high-quality ceramic structures by robocasting, digital light projection and stereolithography. Currently, we are concentrating on the development multi-material printing and flexible greenbody for more complex geometries.
