  Abstract: With rapid advance in material technology, material design has been required to rely on more fundamental principles. Intrinsic properties of materials are largely governed by their electron behaviour, which determines the atomic bond strength. Great effort has long been made to correlate properties of materials to their electron state based on quantum mechanics. However, quantum theories are generally complicated to be used in material design, especially for structural materials which consist of various phases and imperfections. Thus, it is highly desired to have simple but fundamental parameters, which largely reflect the electron behaviour of materials, for material analysis and design in a feasible manner. In this talk, electron work function, which is the minimum energy to move electrons at Fermi level inside a solid to its surface without kinetic energy, is demonstrated to be a promising indicative parameter to characterize materials and provide clues for material design and tailoring. Correlations between EWF and mechanical and electrochemical properties of materials, including alloys, composites and carbides, and interfaces will be discussed. 

  Bio: Dr. Dongyang (D.Y.) Li is a Professor at Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Alberta. His interests of research include wear, corrosion, surfaces and interfaces, nano-materials, and computational materials science. Dr. Li obtained a B.Sc. in Solid Mechanics from University of Science and Technology China (1982), a M.Sc. in Solid-State Physics from Zhongshan University (1985), a PhD in Materials Physics from University of Science and Technology Beijing (1990) and a PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University (1995). Before joining U of Alberta in 1998, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Pennsylvania State University (1995 – 97). He is an Adjunct Professor in Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, U. of Alberta, a visiting professor at the National University of Singapore (2004, 2012) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2011), a foreign doctoral advisor at the Harbin Institute of Technology and a 100-Talents Program Awardee (Shanxi, China). He is on editorial board for 12 technical journals. Dr. Li has in excess of three hundred technical publications including more than two hundred and sixty journal publications.
