Research Interests:

Shuo Sun is starting his position as an assistant professor at the Department of Physics and an associate fellow at JILA in Fall 2020. His research lies in the areas of quantum optics, nanophotonics, and experimental quantum information science. His group studies strong light-matter interactions at the quantum limit by coupling solid-state artificial atoms with nanophotonic structures. The large flexibility in the design of nanophotonic structures offers an effective knob to study new phenomenons in quantum optics and many-body quantum physics. The same platform will also enable chip-integrated quantum photonic devices, which will find important applications in quantum networking, quantum sensing and distributed quantum computing.
