Dr. Bo SONG, from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST, China) has been engaged in the basic research work on additive manufacturing since 2010 years. Facing the characteristics of laser additive manufacturing, the special material was designed to improve the property of metal components, finally, the high-performance components were achieved by the integrated forming of material structure and function. 14 invention patents were applied and three were authorized. 50 papers were published in the SCI journals in the field of material processing, such as Scripta Mater.，J. Alloys. Comp.，J. Mater. Process. Tech., Metall. Mater. Trans. A. There are 40 papers published by the first author or the corresponding author. The papers are cited more than 500 times, including 1 ESI highly cited papers, 1 hot papers of journal, H-index 12. There are 21 papers with more than 3 impact factors, including Scripta Mater., Mater. Sci. Eng. A, 6 Mater. & Des. Based on the theoretical results, a dual laser additive manufacturing equipment has been developed, which improved the performance stability of the metal components.
