Liang Jiang's picture
Associate Professor of Applied Physics and of Physics

Liang Jiang is an associate professor of Applied Physics and Physics at Yale University. He theoretically investigates various quantum systems and explores applications of quantum information.

Liang Jiang obtained his B.S. from Caltech in 2004 and Ph.D. from Harvard in 2009. He was a Sherman Fairchild postdoctoral fellow in the Institute for Quantum Information at Caltech during 2009-2012. In 2012, he became an Assistant Professor of Applied Physics at Yale University. Currently, he is an Associate Professor of Applied Physics and Physics. Liang’s research interests are AMO physics, condensed matter physics, quantum information science. Liang has made important contributions to secure quantum communication over long distances, including quantum repeater with encoding, optimization of quantum repeaters, and network based quantum computation. Liang has also worked on room-temperature diamond-based quantum information processing, including ultra-long nuclear spin quantum memories, perfect quantum state transfer via thermal spin chains, nano-magnetometer using color defects in diamond. Recently, Liang has been investigating quantum information processing with electro-opto-mechanical systems and superconducting circuits that have ultra-strong couplings and unprecedented non-linearity of microwave photons. Liang has been awarded the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship in 2013.
