Associate Researcher Institute for Quanfum Science and Engineering

My research field is quantum physics and quantum computation in solid state systems (including self‐assembled quantum dots, novel 2D materials, and silicon quantum computing with phosphorus donors). My PhD thesis work has been focused on experimental quantum computation and quantum networks in photonics. My PhD supervisors are Prof. Chao-Yang Lu and Prof. Jian-Wei Pan. After PhD graduated, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in Professor Chao‐Yang Lu's group for half a year. During that period, I mainly worked on the direction of demonstrating quantum supremacy using boson sampling machine, including two publications, one is boson sampling in a time‐bin architecture by exploring temporal mode and another one is boson sampling in an integrated circuit using spatial mode. Then I became a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication technology in Professor Michelle Y. Simmons's group in UNSW, Sydney. During these four years in Sydney, I focused on silicon quantum computing with phosphorus donors, there are multiple works: demonstrating the first two qubit gate between phosphorus donors in silicon (Nature, 571, 371 (2019), a milestone work), spin dynamic studies using statistical cumulants, and I also joined a theoretical work on benchmarking of single-shot spin readout.
