Professor Han Huang is a world leading expert in machining, manufacturing and materials mechanics and has a wealth of experience in materials properties characterization in micro and nano scale.

He is currently leading a diverse and strong research team of 8 PhD students and 4 postdoctoral fellows; the research programmes of the team are largely concerned with manufacturing and characterization of advanced materials.

The group has recently established a new AM Laboratory, which houses a DTM2500 Plus SLS, a desktop Sharebot SLS system and a customised SLM (selective laser melting) system for studying laser melting of metal and ceramic powders. The group also has a world-class laboratory that are dedicated to materials preparation, mechanical testing and surface characterization.

Facilities

4. Olympus LEXT OLS 4000 3D Confocal Laser Microscope

Olympus LEXT OLS 4000 3D Confocal Laser MicroscopeThe LEXT OLS 4000 system is a confocal microscope capable of taking high resolution (nanometre-scale) 3D images and performing a variety of metrology measurements. This system features wide magnification range (from 108x to 17,280x ), ultra-high resolution (10 nm in z direction and 120 nm in x-y plane) and robust measurement performance.
