Role at ANSTO
Dr. Tzu-Yen Huang (Ian) is an Instrument Scientist in the Reflectometry Group at the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering. He joined National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC), Taiwan and stationed at ANSTO since 2018. He is primarily responsible for the commissioning and operation of the SPATZ neutron reflectometer but also supports experiments on the PLATYPUS neutron reflectometer and the X-ray reflectometer. His expertise is in organic semiconductor thin films and organic solar cell devices, particularly the morphology changes and molecular interaction in the polymer blends.
Prior to his current position, Ian was awarded the fellowship of Postdoctoral Research Abroad Program (PRAP), Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan working in the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, USA using synchrotron X-ray scattering techniques to study the hierarchical morphology in the organic semiconductor thin film.
