Research Interests

Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing): Recently, Prof Ding Jun’s research has been concentrated on additive manufacturing. His research has been focused on the development of starting mateirals for fabrication of multi-functioanal devices/structures of metal, ceramics, polymer and composite.

Nanomagnetics/spintronics and their applications: Prof Ding Jun has been working in the area of nanomagnetics and spintronics for many years. Recently, he has paid a particular attention on these materials and devices in different applications, including spintronic structures in information storage, nanoparticles in biomedical and environmental applications, magnetic sensors, magnetic energy harvesters and metamaterials. 3D printing will be used in the device fabrication.
