Yanqi Luo

Assistant Beamline Scientist


Yanqi (Grace) Luo is an Assistant Physicist within the Microscopy Group at the X-ray Science Division. Prior to this, she was a postdoctoral researcher at APS. She received her Ph.D. from UC San Diego in 2020 for her work on defect engineering in halide perovskites photovoltaics. Her research interests lie in leveraging advanced X-ray probes and their in-situ multimodal capability to unravel the operational mechanisms of energy materials.

    Research Interests

    • Advancement in in-situ/operando multimodal scanning probe microscopy techniques
    • Understand and controlling over stoichiometry and defects in optical/semiconducting materials 
    • Carrier dynamics in heterogeneous materials
    • AI-enabled nanoscale imaging
