Mingguang Yao
Visiting Investigator

Dr. Mingguang Yao is a Visiting Investigator for one year from Jilin University. He is working with Alexander Goncharov on structures and properties of carbon, boron/nitrogen and their compounds under high pressure. 

Dr. Yao is exploring new boron/carbon-based materials under high pressure and high temperature and understanding their physical properties. He also is studying the synthesis of new carbon-based superhard materials by multi-anvil press.

His research interests include high-pressure study on the structure and properties of carbon and related materials under pressure by using diamond anvil cell and multi-anvil press, as well as synthesis, structure and properties of superhard materials.
