Presentation: The multiscale-structure control of PVDF and studies on its ferro/pizoelectric properties
Xiaoli Sun is currently Professor in the College of Material Sciences and Engineering at Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT). She obtained her Ph.D in Polymer Physics and Chemistry at the Institute of Chemistry-Chinese Academy of Sciences (IC-CAS) and Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) through a sandwich program between the CAS and the Max-Planck-Society in the year of 2009. Thereafter she spent two years as a Postdoctoral fellow at the Kwansei Gakuin University and focused her study in the field of Grazing Incident X-ray scattering from soft-matter thin films. In 2011, she returned to China at BUCT and became full Professor in 2017. Her current research involves orientation-induced polymer crystallization, crystallization behavior of polymer in confined spaces, and structure-property relationship of polymers.
