Our research interests are mainly the mechanical property investigation of functional nanomaterials via in situ Electron Microscopy (SEM & TEM) strategies, which includes: 

1.  Mechanical property of covalently bonded crystals (Diamond, Silicon, Silicon Carbide, etc.) at their micro- & nano-scales, as well as the exhibited deformation behavior/mechanism, such as super-elasticity, anelasticity, plasticity, and phase transformation;

2.  Mechanical property and failure mechanism of novel functional nanomaterials like MOFs/COFs, perovskites, electrodes & electrolytes in LIBs;

3.  Mechanical property of 2D nanomaterials (graphene, hBN, TMDs, Mxenes, and so on) under uniaxial stretching and 3D nanoscale metamaterials (like porous nanoparticles/frameworks) under compression; 

4.  Mechanical property and deformation mechanism investigation on metallic materials (like HEA, intermetallics, metallic glass) at their micro-/nano-scales;

5,  Elastic strain engineering for functional nanomaterials.
