Prof. CHEN Xianhui, Academician of the CAS, Attended the 117th Lecture of the China Distinguished Materials Scientists Forum

On May 28th, the 117th lecture of the China Distinguished Materials Scientists Forum was held in the Academic Conference Hall. Prof. CHEN Xianhui, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and Academician of the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) was invited to give a themed report on the topic of “Evolutionary phenomena and applications in the quantum matter.” Over 200 people from the USTB Department of Materials Science and Engineering and related units attended the event. Mr. Yin Chuanju, Associate Dean of the School of Materials Science and Engineering, hosted the lecture. Prof. XING Xianran, Director of the Institute of Solid State Chemistry, introduced the guest speaker's scientific research direction and academic achievements.

First, Prof. CHEN Xianhui systematically explained the origin, characteristics, and applications of quantum materials. With the improvement of the depth and breadth of quantum materials research, the boundary of the field and cross-fertilization have been further strengthened. Subsequently, Prof. CHEN Xianhui talked about applying quantum materials in the cutting-edge direction and pointed out the bottleneck of power consumption, speed, and manufacturing encountered in semiconductor integrated circuits, which urged us to develop a new generation of low-energy information technology. Finally, Prof. CHEN Xianhui pointed out that although superconducting materials are expected to be important, they are still facing some problems worthy of further in-depth excavation.
