Research Profile

CHU Baojin received his Ph.D in Materiasls Science and Engineering at Pennsylvania State University in 2008.  
In recently years he conducted his research mainly in these fields: 
(1) Interfacial effect in multi-component polymer material systems and its effect on energy storage density of ferroelectric materials
Ferroelectric polymers possess relatively high dielectric constant and breakdown electric field and can be used as dielectric materials for energy storage devices, which have very important application in some pulse power systems, such as microwave weapons and laser weapons. Our study on polymer-based nanocomposites and polymer blends shows that the interfaces in these multi-component systems could increase the energy density of the materials. The mechanisms for this phenomenon, however, are still unclear.
(2)  Electrocaloric effect in ferroelectric materials
We discovered giant electrocaloric effect in ferroelectric polymers.
