Scientific Research Division > Materials Science Group Group Members 
The group gathered many distinguished experts engaged in cutting-edge research in the design, development, and application of synchrotron X-ray techniques, involving X-ray scattering, multiple diffraction, powder diffraction, temporal coherent X-ray diffraction, and submicron X-ray diffraction etc., for advanced materials. Each group member maintains his or her own research team focusing on their particular area of expertise. There are five overreaching research themes prevalent in the group:
  • New experimental techniques and analytic methods for X-ray diffraction
  • Crystallography in materials science
  • Growth mechanism of thin films
  • Structural characteristics and properties of soft materials
  • Design of nanomaterials for energy devices
