The History of Dielectric and Ferroelectric Research in China
The research on dielectric and ferroelectric in China was started in the early 1950s by Prof. Jidan Chen in Jiaotong University, Shanghai, China, who is the pioneer and one of the major founders of the Chinese dielectric research field. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, a group of visiting scientists and students from China began studying and researching in many western countries, especially in the United States and Europe, including United Kingdom, France, Germany, etc. In the following decades, more Chinese scientists, students and engineers visited, studied and worked in many universities, institutions and companies around the world. Some of them have played a very important role in the forefront and development of this field. At present, China has developed into almost the largest dielectrics and ferroelectric community, and has made great contributions to the field. Looking forward to the future, let us work together and strengthen cooperation to promote the further development of dielectric and ferroelectric research and application to meet the ultra-rapid development of modern science and technology.

Xi Yao graduated from Jiaotong University, China in 1957 and received his Ph. D of Solid State Science in 1982, at the Pennsylvania State University, US. He soon became a full professor of Xi’an Jiaotong University, who is the first PhD supervisor in the field of Electronic Materials and Devices in China. Yao’s research interests include dielectric materials and devices, ferroelectric, piezoelectric and pyroelectric materials and devices, oxide and compound semiconductors and devices, functional nano composite materials and devices, and integrated ferroelectrics. In 1986 he founded and started the Electronic Materials Research Laboratory (EMRL) in Xi’an Jiaotong University. Now he is severed as the the Chair of International Center for Dielectric Research (ICDR) at Xi’an Jiaotong University and the Editor in Chief of the Jurnal of Advanced Dielectrics (JAD). Xi Yao is a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, foreign associate of the National Academy of Engineering of the USA. He is one of the founding members of the World Academy of Ceramics, founding chairman of the Asian Ferroelectric Association, member of the International Ferroelectric Advisory Committee, Academician of Asia Pacific Academy of Materials (APAM), fellow of the American Ceramic Society.
