Xiyuan Lu is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Photonics and Plasmonics Group. He received a B.S. in Physics from Nanjing University, China and a Ph.D. in Physics from University of Rochester. His doctoral research focused on entangled photon sources in high-quality silicon microcavities, and on silicon carbide micro/nanophotonic devices for optomechanical and nonlinear optical applications. He is now working with project leader/NIST fellow Kartik Srinivasan in developing chip-scale nonlinear nanophotonic devices for microcavity frequency comb, quantum/classical light generation and conversion, quantum entanglement, and atomic memory.
