PhD students


The research in Dr. Yang’s group works at the research frontiers on atomic-level structural studies, with atomic electron tomography (AET) as the main tools. His research mainly focuses on using microscopes solving cutting edge science and technology questions such as:

(1) The 3D atomic structure of nano-catalysts, 2D materials and quantum materials and its related properties.

(2) Development of advanced electron microscopy methods include ptychography and machine learning based algorithm.

(3) The 3D atomic structure of amorphous materials and atomic movement during amorphous-crystalline transition.


Our group is recruiting postdoctoral scholars, PhD students as well as research associates. We welcome highly motivated researchers with backgrounds of materials science, condensed matter physics, chemistry, computer science or related field (not essential for PhDs and RAs) to join us. Interested candidates are welcome to send CV to
