I obtained my bachelor and master degree both majoring on Materials Science and Engineering in China. I accumulated sufficient knowledge and experience on metallic glasses and the relative magnetic properties, especially the fabrication and thermal treatment, during the 2.5 years' master study. Subsequently I changed my research topic to ferroelectric thin films during the Phd study, focusing on the photo-induced current and polarization screening behavior by photo-charges, and their correlation with strain, internal field, interface and electrodes status. Also participated a topic on reducing the band-gap of BaTiO3 by N doping. I planned to obtain my Phd degree on 2017.
