Yu Li

Postdoctoral Appointee



Yu Li received his Ph.D. in physics, from the Rice University in  2018.  He worked as a postdoc in the Louisiana Consortium for Neutron Scattering (LaCNS) and Physics Department at Louisiana State University from 2018 and joined the Materials Science Division as a Postdoctoral Appointee at Argonne in 2021.

Yu’s research includes: design and synthesis of bulk crystals with various methods; magnetic and charge transport measurements; neutron/X-ray scattering; and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). He is interested in understanding electronic and magnetic properties in high-Tc superconductors, correlated electron systems, topological materials and exotic spin textures in magnetic materials.
