Recently, the Chinese Ceramic Society (CCS) announced the lists of the 6th Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award. The doctoral dissertation “Study on Preparation of Ferroelectric-based Photoelectric Conversion Materials and Performance Optimization of related Photovoltaic Devices” supervised by Prof. He Yunbin and completed by Chen Jian from the School of Materials Science and Engineering of our university won the award, which was only granted to 10 people around the nation.
Chen Jian entered Hubei university for his bachelor’s degree in September 2012, was admitted to our university for master’s degree and involved in the MD-PhD program in September 2016 and obtained the doctor degree in Engineering in June 2021, and is now a postdoctoral fellow of our university (co-advisor Prof. Yunbin He). Jian Chen is mainly engaged in the research of ferroelectric semiconductor materials and optoelectronic devices, and has published 29 high-level papers (including 28 SCI papers) in domestic and international academic journals, applied for 8 national invention patents and obtained 7 authorizations. He is presiding over 1 project of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, 1 project of the China Postdoctoral Fund and 1 project of the Hubei Postdoctoral Innovation Research Post.
Founded in 1945, CSS is an important part of China Association for Science and Technology. The Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award of CSS has been held once a year for five consecutive years, which has an important influence on researchers in the field of inorganic non-metallic materials. Ten doctoral dissertations from Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Hubei University won this award, and five dissertations were nominated.
