Award category: inventor

Reasons for winning: Mainly engaged in interdisciplinary research in the field of nanoscale heat conduction and energy conversion. Related research breaks the traditional notion that polymers are only thermal insulators, laying a solid foundation for organic thermal diodes, thermal switches, and on-demand heat flow control.

For the first time, the winners discovered significant thermal rectification in asymmetric polymers, as well as thermal switching in temperature-sensitive polymers, and demonstrated high-order phase transitions for the first time to demonstrate fast thermal switching.

The award-winning research is expected to have a major impact on thermal energy conversion and thermal management in areas such as microelectronics, space and building technology, smart fabrics, smart manufacturing, and biomedical engineering.
