The high-temperature corrosion and self lubrication research group focuses on the multi-function materials design and structure-property relationship of high corrosion resistance structural/functional scales and composites. High temperature protective coatings and self-lubricating composite materials were studied and shown with high protection performance, resistance to high-temperature oxidation and corrosion, extremely low lattice thermal conductivity, and high reliability in extreme corrosive environments. Novel experimental methods were developed and used for coating preparation, such as EB-PVD, APS, MS, AIP and SPS. Theoretical modeling of electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties are used to discover relationships between the atomic- and/or electronic-scale characteristics, microstructures, and macro-performances. They are also committed to the application research of high-temperature corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant coatings and materials. At present, a variety of finished products are applied in the military industry, steel industry, power industry and others that serviced in high temperature or marine environment.
