Brief Introduction

Professor CHEN Lang has mainly worked on complex functional oxides and multiferrioc materials recently. He explained the nonlinear piezoresponse of ferroelectric thin film and was among the first group to elucidate the ferroelastic domain dynamics in ferroelectric thin films. He elucidated the low symmetry phases, domain structures and in-plane polarization rotation in epitaxial BiFeO3 thin film system and proposed to study the novel and abnormal electromagnetic and mechanical properties. He has published 91 journal papers in various journals including Nature Materials, PRL, PRB, APL, Adv Mat, Adv Fun Mat, ACS Nano, Nat Communication ...and etc. He also served as reviewer for many journals such as Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, New Journal of Physics, Applied Physics Letters, Nanotechnology etc.
