Yong P. Chen
Miller Family Assistant Professor of Nanoscience and Physics
Assistant Professor Courtesy of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Phone: +1 765 49-440947
PhD in Electrical Engineering (Princeton, 2005)
low dimensional and nanoscale physics, graphene, nano devices for radiation detection and fluid sensors, quantum physics and quantum information with cold atoms and molecules
Research Impact Statement:
The current research of Dr. Chen and his interdisciplinary Quantum Matter and Devices Group at Purdue focuses on quantum manipulation of electrons, atoms and photons, and emerging quantum systems (such as artificially engineered nanostructures as well as cold atoms in optical lattices) that can display novel quantum phases of matter and promise innovative applications in quantum information processing or nanotechnologies.
