TitleCityU secures HK$11m in collaborative research fund
DescriptionProfessor Wang Zuankai, from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, is leading a team of scientists from different disciplines in a project titled “Bio-inspired surface engineering for phase change heat transfer: From fundamental understanding to practical applications”, which was awarded about HK$5.5 million.

Professor Lee Chun-sing, Head of the Department of Chemistry and Chair Professor of Materials Chemistry, together with scientists from five other local universities, will use HK$5.7 million of the CRF grant to establish a multi-function surface analysis system with time-resolved two-photon photoemission (TR-2PPE) spectroscopy.
