Cong Liu - Graduate Student, Lehigh University

Cong Liu is a graduate student in the Lehigh Chemistry Department with expertise in the synthesis and characterization of mesoporous materials.  He is interested in the synthesis of hard-templated 1-dimensional diamond mesostructures using mesoporous α-alumina templates. His work involves multiple analytical techniques including small and wide angle x-ray diffraction, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, and gas adsorption.
