YuHuang Wang


University of Maryland

YuHuang Wang is a professor of chemistry at the University of Maryland, College Park. His research group focuses on the chemical physics and the synthesis of sp3 quantum defects (also known as organic color centers) to understand and control the coupling of electrons, excitons, phonons, and spin at defects. They also develop instrumentation, methodologies, and platform technologies to address fundamental challenges in energy, biomedical, and quantum technologies. Dr. Wang is the author of more than 120 manuscripts and 25 patents and applications in these areas. His research work has been featured on 17 journal covers and by more than 170 news and perspectives in journals and news media. He has received several awards, including a CAREER award (2011) from the National Science Foundation and the Kirwan Faculty Research and Scholarship Prize (2019) from the University of Maryland. Dr. Wang is an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society (2021, Chemical Physics). More information can be found at https://www2.chem.umd.edu/groups/wang/dr-wang/
