Dr Zhao is mainly engaged on the fabrication of functional metal alloy thin films, he has led a number of important research projects such as magnetic information recording alloy films, new IC electronic packaging alloy films, high internal stress nickel-based alloy films, non-rare earth permanent magnet alloy thin films, etc. Among which, the self-developed cellular structured nickel-cobalt-phosphorus perpendicular magnetic recording film was successfully industrialized by American companies Scot Industries, JCB, etc., and applied to magnetic information recording and tracking of hydraulic structural parts. He developed a self-lubricating wear-resistant CNC film preparation process, which became the core of the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) project – Hydrocoat later on. This project was awarded the EU 2012 Star Project.
