About me

Dr. Yixi Su is Senior Staff Scientist and Principal Investigator in the Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, one of the largest and leading interdisciplinary research centres in Europe, and the group leader of the MLZ Science Group "Quantum Phenomena" in Garching, Germany. He studied physics at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, and received his PhD in experimental condensed matter physics from the University of Durham in England in March 1999, with a thesis supervised by Prof. Peter Hatton on X-ray scattering studies of strongly correlated electron systems. Dr. Su then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at DESY and the University of Hamburg in Germany, before joining the Forschungszentrum Jülich in July 2001, where he became permanent Staff Scientist in 2005 and subsequently Senior Staff Scientist in 2012. His main research interests are on neutron and X-ray scattering studies of topological quantum materials, frustrated magnetism, strongly correlated electrons, unconventional superconductors and nanomagnetism. Dr. Su has also been extensively engaged in the research and development of scattering methods and neutron instrumentation, as well as in the synthesis of novel quantum materials. He has published more than 150 papers in the internationally reputed journals, including Science, Nature Physics, Science Advances, Nature Communications and Physical Review Letters etc., with H-index = 34 (Google Scholar). Dr. Su is very active in the education and training of the next generation neutron scattering scientists, and has supervised more than 10 PhD students and postdocs in recent years.
