Solid-state spins, integrated and quantum optics

Shuo Sun is an associate fellow of JILA and an assistant professor of the Department of Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder. He obtained his BS in 2011 from Zhejiang University, China, and obtained his MS and PhD in 2015 and 2016 from the University of Maryland, College park. During his PhD, he developed the first spin-photon quantum switch and the first single-photon transistor using a solid-state spin. Before joining the faculty of JILA and the University of Colorado Boulder in 2020, Dr. Sun was a postdoctoral fellow (2017 – 2019) and a physical science research scientist (2019 – 2020) in the Ginzton Lab at Stanford University. There he worked with Prof. Jelena Vuckovic on color center based quantum optics and inverse designed quantum photonics.
