Welcome to Prof. Chun Tang's Research Group at Jiangsu University!
We utilize computational tools such as molecular dynamics simulations and first principles calculations to study mechanical properties and electromechanical coupling behaviors of novel materials. Our interests include but are not limited to: graphene, carbon nanotubes, molybdenum disulfide, nanowires and so on. Our goal is to understand the properties of these functional materials and facilitate their potential applications in high performance devices.
We collaborate closely with experimentalists and theorists both in China and abroad across wide ranges of disciplines to explore new frontiers and phenomena in physical mechanics of nanomaterials. Students in our group have plenty of opportunities to study abroad with our collaborators in top universities or institutes.
Young students with strong motivations are highly welcome to join us. Please contact Prof. Tang if you are interested in our research.
