Kun Huang

Univeristy of Science and Technology of China

Kun Huang was born in 1985 and received his PHD in Optics at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2012. After working as a post-doctoral fellow at National University of Singapore and a research Scientist at Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (A-STAR, Singapore), he is currently a research professor at department of optics and optical engineering at USTC and leading the “Advanced Nanophotonics Lab”. His research interests is to manipulate the properties of light and materials by using artificial nano-structures for applications in optics, nanotechnology, medical surgery, material science and condensed matter physics. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers in journals including Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, National Science Review, ACS Nano, Nano Letters, Light: Science & Applications, and Laser Photonics Reviews. He and his collaborators developed photon nanosieve platform, proposed the super-oscillation criterion (0.38λ/NA) in optical focusing, found the antiferromagntism in dielectric metasurfaces and raised the concept of optical masquerade.
