The title of the speciality of Refrigeration and Cryogenics” refers to normal refrigeration, air conditioning, heating and ventilation, cryogenic refrigeration, liquefaction and separation of cryogenic fluids, equipment and machinery that is required during the process. The working temperature range covers from room temperature down to liquid helium temperature (which is about 4K or minus 269).

I have been worked at Zhejiang University for more than 40 years. I supervised and trained 15 PhD students, about 40 Master students, and about 100 undergraduates until their graduation. Meanwhile, I also engaged in a number of fundamental research projects from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, which were principal to support my teaching and academic study .
