Cheng Li

Neutron Scattering Scientist


Cheng Li is currently an instrument scientist working on both POWGEN and NOMAD. He studied Material Science and Engineering at the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics as an undergraduate and obtained his Ph.D. in Material Chemistry at Imperial College London. 

He is interested in structural analysis using diffraction techniques to investigate the average and local structure of complex oxide systems. Particularly, he is interested in the structure-property relationship of energy materials such as those used as oxygen ion conductors, Li-ion battery solid electrolyte, battery cathodes, and relaxors/ferroelectrics. He is interested in advancing data analysis methodology, especially using TOPAS and Rigid Mode Units.
