Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Ying-Lung Daniel Ho received his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from the National Taipei University of Technology in Taiwan and the Ph.D. degree in Quantum Photonics from the University of Bristol. His doctoral dissertation investigated the method of designing efficient single-photon sources for quantum information applications. He was employed as a Postdoctoral Researcher and then a Research Fellow in Prof. John Rarity‘s group. His work as a Research Fellow (Researcher Co-Investigator and Co-Investigator) under the EPSRC Research Grants (EP/M009033/1 and EP/P034446/1) has led research in direct laser writing using two-photon polymerisation in the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs, and he is also a Visiting Lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Bristol.

In September 2019, he started a position as a Vice-Chancellor’s Senior Fellow in Physics and Electrical Engineering, after a career in Quantum Photonics research at the University of Bristol. Currently, he is the head of the Nanophotonic Engineering Laboratory (NEL) and leads an EPSRC Research Grant (EP/V040030/1) of £475k (100% FEC) to develop and conduct Nanophotonics research, which focuses on a comprehensive investigation into the fundamentals and applications of 3D nanophotonics in artificially structured materials. The project is in collaboration with research partners (QET Labs, University of Bristol and ORC, University of Southampton) and industrial partner (Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology) to develop novel sensors, biomimetic structures, nano-lasers, and ultrafast optical switches and devices for quantum technology.

Additionally, his recently awarded Royal Society Research Grant, providing funding to purchase an advanced microscope heating stage. The unique combination of a commercial heating stage for pressure, vacuum, and temperature control and an in-house built Fourier image spectroscopy (FIS) for a broadband and wide angle-resolved scattering characterization in the visible and infrared range as a thermal analysis technique in thermophotovoltaic research.

Research interests

Daniel's research is concerned with both the theory and application of artificially structured electromagnetic materials for photonic engineering, quantum technologies, and energy applications.
