Professional Employment

Nan Zhao received his Ph.D. (2009) from Tsinghua University, Beijing. He worked in Professor Ren-Bao Liu’s group in the Chinese University of Hong Kong (2009.12-2011.09) and in Professor Jörg Wrachtrup’s group in Stuttgart, Germany (2011.09-2012.09), as a postdoctoral researcher . He joined Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) as an assistant professor.

Research Interests

• Physics and applications of central spin decoherence

• Implementation of quantum information processing in solid-state systems

• Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) centers in diamond (theory and experiment)

• Atom-photon interaction in artificial systems
