Research Areas & Summary

Dr. Dong has been engaged in piezoelectric, ferroelectric, magnetoelectrical functional materials and devices, as well as the recent 3D printing and flexible electronics, piezoelectric actuators, and nano-step motors’ research. Recently, Dr.Dong proposed the piezoelectric metamaterial concept based on ordered structure with functional actuation elements in piezoelectric ceramic system, and for the first time, he achieved all non-zero 18 piezoelectric coefficients, breaking the traditional understanding that piezoelectric ceramic materials have had only five non-zero piezoelectric coefficients for more than 70 years. This breakthrough work was published in the journal of Science Advances, 2019. Dr. Dong also created the "magneto-elasto-electric" coupling equivalent circuit method in the field of magnetoelectric functional materials, which is one of the currently recognized theoretical method. In the research of piezoelectric micromotor, Dr. Dong invented the world's smallest piezoelectric micromotor, then, low temperature actuators, high temperature piezoelectric motor, including a series of linear piezoelectric motors with micro-nano resolution; Dr. Dong also found the voltage gain effect and current-voltage conversion effect from magnetoelectric composite materials for the first time. Recently, Dr. Dong’s group works for flexible piezoelectric harvesters by using the independently developed 3D printing equipment.
