Dr. ZHANG Linxing, Ph.D. and Research Scientist, currently works at the Institute for Advanced Materials and Technology. He is mainly committed to the research of the synthesis, structural analysis, ferroelectric and photoelectric properties of multifunctional films. He focuses on revealing the internal mechanisms and laws of phase interface strain-crystal structure-optimization performance, realizing the transition from giant strain to super ferroelectric, and expanding the ferromagnetic properties and ultrafast photoinduced strain of ferroelectric thin films so as to promote the design and application of new ferroelectric materials. He has attended academic conferences and delivered special reports in China and abroad, and presided over and participated in 10 projects such as the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He was awarded the Beijing Excellent Doctoral Graduate in 2007, the outstanding influence award of Chinese Excellent Science and Technology figures in 2018, the Excellent postdoctoral of USTB in 2019 and the title of JSPS HOPE Fellow.

He participated in 5 major scientific research projects as project leader and presided over the school-level education and teaching reform project and English language-based course projects. Moreover, Dr. KOU participated in 4 projects including those related to university-level education and teaching reforms. He has written a textbook and is an editor of the “Collected Works of WEI Shoukun (Volume 2)”. Dr. KOU has won many awards including first prize for university-level education and teaching achievements, the third prize of the Young Teacher Teaching Basic Skills competition, National Scholarship Award for Doctoral Candidates, etc. He also serves as secretary of the Secretariat of the Green Ironmaking Standardization Technical Committee and the Secretariat of the Green Manufacturing Standardization Technical Committee of the Chinese Society for Metals.
The "Young Talents Support Project" talent training program was initiated by the China Association for Science and Technology in 2015. Its purpose is to support national societies, associations, and research councils to select and train mechanism innovative young science and technology talents, as well as discover and support outstanding young talents who have potential to become future leaders in science and technology. The program promotes talents to realize the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. A group of national societies are selected each year as the host, and a group of young science and technology workers under the age of 32 are selected and trained for 3 consecutive years.
