Research Interests

Bu Wang’s research focuses on the complex atomic structures of crystalline and amorphous inorganic materials. By utilizing various simulation techniques, his research strives to understand how the material properties can be predicted and engineered at the atomic level. The current project includes radiation resistance in silicates, mechanical properties and nano-ductility of oxide glasses, and amorphization of functional oxides.
