Bingbo Wei, born in April 1964 at Shandong province of China, professor of materials science at the department of applied physics in Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU), member of Chinese Academy of Sciences, president of Chinese Materials Research Society. He graduated from the mechanical engineering department of Shandong Engineering Institute and got a BE degree for foundry technology in 1983. Obtained a ME degree for solidification technology in 1986 at the materials science department of Nanjing Institute of Technology. In 1989, he received a Ph.D degree for rapid solidification research at department of materials science and engineering in NPU. After his doctoral study, he became lecturer of physical metallurgy at NPU and got involved in Chinas early programs of space science research. With the supports of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, he went to German Aerospace Research Center, Max-Planck-Institute of Metals Research and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne for cooperative investigations in the two years of 1991-1992.
