Dr. Jun Zhang is a full professor at Hefei National Lab of Physical Sciences at Microscale, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), who was also selected into the “Hundred Talents Program” as well as the “Youth Innovation Promotion Association” of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dr. Zhang received his bachelor’s degree and PhD both from USTC at 2002, and 2007, respectively. From August 2007 to January 2011, he had been working in University of Geneva as a postdoctoral researcher. At January 2011 he came back to USTC. Dr. Zhang was promoted as a full professor starting from July 2016. Currently he is interested in quantum communication, single-photon detection and applications, quantum random number generator and quantum Lidar. For high-speed single-photon detection, he achieved a world record in terms of working frequency, which thoroughly resolved the long-standing bottleneck problem of working frequency for single-photon detectors. Then he implemented fully-integrated InGaAs/InP single-photon detectors with a gating frequency of 1.25 GHz for the first time, which have been deployed in large-scale for the giant project of “Beijing-Shanghai Quantum Communication Backbone Network”. Also, he experimentally demonstrated a quantum random number generator (QRNG) with a bit rate of 68 Gbps, which had been reported by a well-known American scientific magazine of MIT Technology Review entitled as “World's Fastest Quantum Random Number Generator Unveiled in China”. So far, Dr. Zhang has published around 40 papers in well-known journals including Nature, Physics Reports, Light: Science & Applications, Physical Review Letters, Physical Review A, Applied Physics Letters, Optics Express, Optics Letters and Review of Scientific Instruments, with more than 1700 citations (Google Scholar), and has 13 authorized/accepted invent patents.
