Dr. Tao Wang received his Ph. D. degree in Physics from University of Paris-Sud (Paris 11) in 2012. He then worked at RWTH Aachen University, Germany as a Postdoc from 2012 to 2014. After that, he moved to National University of Singapore as a Research Fellow from 2014 to 2017. From 2017 to 2019, he worked as a Research Scientist at Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), A*STAR, Singapore. In May 2019, he joined Soochow University as a full professor.
Our research focuses on developing electrically-driven plasmon sources which could be used as an on-chip nanoscale light source for the new generation of photonic circuits. We also study the fundamental physics of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale using the near-field optical microscopy via our Neaspec SNOM system.
