Jin Zhanpeng , Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences
Jin Zhanpeng, a member of CPC, male, Han nationality, was born in Lipu County of Guangxi Province in November 1938. In 1963, he graduated as MS from Central South Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. From 1978 to 1981, he had visited the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology as a visiting scholar. In November 2003, he was elected as member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He used to sever as member of the International Committee of the Alloy Phase Diagram, Director of the Chinese Materials Society, Deputy Editor of Journal of International Calphad, Editorial Advisory Board of the American Equilibrium Journal, and member of the Asia-Pacific Materials Science. Now he is a professor of Materials Science and an Engineering and PhD supervisor at Central South University.
Professor Jin Zhanpeng has been engaged in the research of phase diagram calculations and phase transformation kinetics. He promoted the alloy phase thermodynamic model, and proposed even micro-diffusion component analysis study of the phase diagram of efficient cooperation. Moreover, he put forward the periodically metastable phase transition theory and the method for derivation of metastable phase diagram through the cooperation, assessed and calculated the phase diagrams for a series of alloy systems, ceramic oxide systems and artificial crystal materials, then established the relevant thermodynamics and phase diagram database, and researched various dynamic channels based on the phase diagrams with different thermodynamic variables as coordinates. By his work, a theoretical framework was set up for the simulated microstructural evolution of materials that are used for predicating and clarifying the amorphous zone of alloy, the interface reaction process of composite material and the forming conditions of the thermal corrosion products. His papers cover physics, chemistry, materials science and computer applications, which have been cited on over 50 international journals and periodicals as references for the establishment of a new theory, development of new methods, design of new materials, clarification of new phenomena and the formulation of new technology. In 1989, he was awarded with the Second Prize of Science and Technology Progress Award of the State Education Commission of the PRC, and the Third Prize of Award of State Natural Science in 1991. In 1999, he obtained the Science and Technology Progress Award of Guangxi University.
Professor Jin Zhanpeng is called “academician of Chinese Hawking, live map of materials science”. Although the disease hampered his health, he never stopped his pace of research and teaching. In 1998, he won the First Prize of Baogang Education Award. In 2003, he was awarded with the top Ten Big News Figures of Hunan Province, titled as National Teacher Model in 2007, “Ethic Model of Hunan Province” in 2009. In 2011, he was named as National Teaching Model for the second session and as National Excellent Communist Party Member in 2012. Up to now, He has supervised more than 50 MS and PhD students. Some students were hired as Lotus Scholar, and entered the Changjiang Scholars Program and the 1000 Talents Plan, and some served as Deputy Editor of the international journal CALPHAD & JPED, and Editor of IJMR and Metal. Among the 20 members of American Commission of Alloy Phase Diagram, four of them are supervised by Professor Jin Zhanpeng. They are now outstanding scientists and experts in areas of material phase diagram and phase change all around Europe, Asia and the America.
Recently, Professor Jin Zhanpeng’s research focuses on the features of the times, cross situation, internal rules and innovation space of scientific materials.
