Beihang university has a leading research group in the field of thermal barrier coatings (TBC), which is indispensable to protect crucial components such as turbine blades in modern turbine engines for airplanes. We plan to exchange information, researchers and students, and hold joint topical workshops in the future to promote mutual collaboration.
