Assistant Professor in Molecular Engineering
The Yang lab utilizes molecular beam epitaxy to engineer quantum materials layer-by-layer, and characterizes the electronic properties of these materials using equilibrium and non-equilibrium photoemission spectroscopies. We are primarily interested in the quantum phenomena emerging at material interfaces, such as interfacial superconductivity and topological orders. Furthermore, ultrafast photoemission spectroscopy provides additional control over materials in the time domain, enabling us to drive materials into novel non-equilibrium states.
Shuolong obtained his B.S. in Physics at Stanford University. He continued to pursue his Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Stanford. Before coming to the University of Chicago and IME, he was a Kavli postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University, working at the interface between condensed matter physics and materials science.
