On the morning of June 9th, Gao Fei, guest professor of Xiamen University, professor of nuclear engineering department of the university of Michigan gave an academic report entitled "Materials Response to Irradiation: As Revealed by Computer Simulations" for the Nuclear Energy Research Institute of teachers and students. The report was presided by Ran Guang, associate professor of Institute for Energy Study. Teachers, graduate and undergraduate students of the Nuclear Energy Research Institute participated in the report.


Professor Gao Fei introduced the development of nuclear energy and its effect on social, the advantages of computer in simulation study on radiation damage of materials, and the methods of computer simulation on single / multi-phase two binary alloys, zirconium alloy, nickel and its alloy irradiation radiation evolution mechanism. The participating teachers and students showed great interest in the report, and raised heated discussions with professor Gao. Professor Gao answered all the questions questioned by the participants.


Professor Gao Fei, currently a professor of nuclear engineering and radiation science department of the University of Michigan, guest professor of XMU University (a year in Xiamen University for a month). In December 1994, professor Gao awarded by the University of Liverpool doctor of Science degree UK material and he also was a postdoctoral at the University of Liverpool in UK during 1997-1999, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researcher in the United States during 2000-2014, professor at the University of Michigan since 2014. Professor Gao Fei is internationally known as a theoretical physicist of radiation. He is the academic authority of the molecular dynamics and the first principles simulation research of radiation damage in materials. He has published more than 200 SCI academic papers in international authoritative journals such as Nature communications, PRL and Nanoletters. He has hosted a number of projects of the United States Department of energy and be invited more than 10 times to make special reports in international academic conferences.
