Professor Sidney Yip from MIT visited IMR


Professor Sidney Yip from MIT, recipient of the Hsun Lee Lecture Award,  visited the Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences from 18 to 23 April 2006. During the visit he gave the Hsun Lee Lectures entitled: (1) Computational Materials: A Global Investment in Science and Technology; (2) Atomic-Level Measures of Materials Strength, Shear Localization and Reactivity. Professor Ke Lu, director of IMR, presented the memorial plate of the lecture to Professor Yip at a short ceremony before the lectures. During his visit, Professor Yip met with Dr Ke Lu and Dr Rui Yang, and held informal discussions with several groups working on materials computation in IMR, after his tour in the Shenyang National Laboratory for Materials Science. He was impressed by the research work at IMR and encouraged closer collaboration between the IMR groups and those elsewhere. He further commented that IMR should seize the chance of the rapid development of computational materials science, and strive for a leading position in this field.

Professor Yip obtained his Ph. D. from the University of Michigan in 1962. He joined MIT since 1965, and was appointed a professor there in 1973. His research interests are mainly on nuclear physics and computational materials science, and he made great contributions to the atomistic simulation of materials, transport behavior, and neutron diffraction. He has published more than 300 papers and 5 books, including the two-volume reference book he edited: Handbook of Materials Modeling, published in 2005. He is the Principal Editor of Journal of Computer-Aided Materials Design, and an editorial board member of Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering. He won many honors and awards, including Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Institute of Physics, John Simon Guggenheim Fellow, US Senior Scientist Award from Humboldt, and Outstanding Professor Award from ANS, etc.
