HKIAS Senior Fellow Professor Ke Lu receives the 2019 Acta Materialia Gold Medal
Professor Ke Lu, HKIAS Senior Fellow, has been honored the 2019 Acta Materialia Gold Medal from the Acta Materialia, Incorporated. The award recognizes the outstanding achievements of Professor Lu to Materials Science. The Gold Medal will be presented during the 2019 TMS Spring Meeting and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas.
As a leading researcher in the field of nanostructured materials, Professor Lu contributed to the advancement of materials science and engineering with world-class, trend-setting research. His major scientific accomplishments include: discovery of nano-twinned materials and development of nano-twin strengthening methodology; development of surface nanocrystallization technology and discovery of unique behaviors of gradient nano-grained structures in metals and alloys, and the stabilization and plastic deformation of nano-grained metals at extreme sizes.
Professor Lu is a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the World Academy of Sciences for Developing Countries, the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, and National Academy of Engineering of USA (foreign member) and has received numerous awards from around the world.
The Acta Materialia Gold Medal was established by Acta Materialia, Inc. in 1973 as an international award to recognize leadership in materials research. Acta Materialia, Inc. represents 33 professional societies worldwide in publishing two international journals and in other activities supporting the materials profession.
