Lecture Title:
Tribology for Space Technology
Prof. Weimin LIU, received his Ph.D. in lubricating materials and Tribology from Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics (LICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1990. After that, he joined the State Key Laboratory of Solid Lubrication (LSL) of the LICP. From June 1993 to June 1994, he worked as a Visiting Scholar at Pennsylvania State University, USA. In 2013, he was elected the Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2016, he was elected the Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS). Currently, he is head of the State Key Laboratory of Solid Lubrication, and one of the Editors of journal of Tribology International.
Prof. LIU has been working in tribology for over 30 years and made great contributions to develop advanced lubricating materials for China's space, aviation and heavy duty industries in which lubrication is the key to guarantee long term service of moving components. Up to now, he has published more than 600 papers with citation over 21000 times. He holds 80 Chinese patents and 1 US patent; won 2 National Awards for Natural Sciences (second class) and 2 National Awards for Technological Invention (second class). He is the winner of the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Materials Prize of 2016. His research interests mainly focus on space and aviation lubrication, high performance lubricating materials and Tribochemistry.
