I studied Physics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Milano, Italy), where I earned a bachelor’s degree followed by a master’s degree. Both of them consisted mainly of solid state physics classes, with a particular focus on semiconductors (for electronics and photonics application) and magnetic nanostructures. My first experience in research was at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France), where I spent 10 months working as a trainee for my master thesis project.

We are pleased to announce that the PhD Investigator Award 2017 is now open for nominations.
The winning researcher, selected by Diamond’s senior scientists, will win £500 prize.
The winner will also be given the chance to present his/her research either at a Diamond scientific meeting, or as part of another public event.
Dr Sihai Yang from was the first winner of the PhD Investigator Award in 2011 when completing his PhD at Nottingham University.
Sihai used the Diamond synchrotron in his research into porous coordination framework materials for applications in energy storage. As well as working on materials that hold potential for effective hydrogen storage, Sihai was also involved in the research of carbon capture applications. The judges chose Sihai as the first winner of the award for making an exceptional contribution to synchrotron science in his work, over and above what might be expected of an early career scientist.
17th March 2017: Nominations deadline
