报告题目：卓越的天然丝：从结构到功能应用 （The Power of Silk: From Structural Organization to Functional Applications）
主讲人简介：Shengjie Ling is an assistant professor at ShanghaiTech University. He received his Ph.D. in Polymer Chemistry and Physics from Fudan University in 2014. He obtained CSC fellowship of Joint Ph.D. Student in ETH Zurich from 2012 to 2013. He worked with Prof. Markus J. Buehler at MIT and Prof. David L. Kaplan at Tufts University as a postdoctoral associate from 2014 to 2017.
讲座简介：Animal silks, produced by spider and silkworms, have attracted the attention of scientists and engineers for more than a century, not only because of their marvelous mechanical properties, but also owing to their diverse applications in textile, optical, and biomedical fields. In addition to in-depth studies of the physical properties and functionality of natural silks, experimental attempts were also made to functionalize silk-based materials. However, the power of silks is under great potential for further development. Dr. Ling is studying the structure-function relationships of natural silks by using synchrotron FTIR and X-ray techniques. He also focuses on developing the novel applications of silk nanofibril-based materials. In this talk, He will introduce his researches in characterizations and silk applications.
