Ruixing Liang Materials scientist
Ruixing Liang is widely regarded as one of the world’s best crystal growers in high-temperature oxide superconductors. He has collaborated for many years with CIFAR Quantum Materials Program members Doug Bonn and Walter Hardy. The synthesis of high-quality crystals of yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO) by this trio has been, and continues to be, the vital basis for many of the experiments carried out by other members of the program, as well as by other materials scientists around the world.
