Professor Wang Xunli, Chair Professor and Head of the Department of Physics, has been elected Fellow of the Neutron Scattering Society of America (NSSA) for his “innovative neutron scattering studies at the interface between condensed matter physics and engineering materials science, and for the development of new neutron instrumentation to enable these seminal studies”.
Professor Wang’s expertise lies in neutron and synchrotron scattering measurements. He applies these state-of-the-art experimental techniques to study phase transformation and deformation in advanced materials.
Professor Wang is an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, American Association for the Advancement of Science, and his early work on welding residual stresses was awarded an A. F. Davis Medal by the American Welding Society.
