Biography

Dr. Yong Hu is a postdoctoral fellow at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) since September 2020.

He received his PhD in 2018 from Institute of Physics (IOP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), under the supervision of Prof. X. J. Zhou. During his PhD research, he mainly focused on MBE growth, STM characterization and APRES studies of correlated materials (e.g. FeSe/SrTiO3 films). After graduation, he started to work with Prof. Junfeng He, working on the spin-orbit coupled Mott insulator Sr2IrO4, and he also worked on magnetic topological insulators (MnBi2Te4)m(Bi2Te3)n.

Institutional Responsibilities

Conducting Research on novel topological quantum states and correlated electronic systems with ARPES; Development, support and maintenance of specialized measurement equipment at the SIS beamline; Support of external user groups.

Scientific Research

Dr. Yong Hu's scientific research is currently focused on electronic structure of:
1. Strongly correlated materials (unconventional superconductors, spin-orbit coupled Mott insulator, etc.);

2. Novel topological materials (coexistence of topology and magnetism/ superconductivity, etc.).
