Dr. Ze-Xun Lin

Postdoctoral Scholar

Dr. Ze-Xun Lin joined the NarangLab as a postdoctoral scholar in September 2023. He has a background in condensed matter theory with an emphasis on chiral phonons, placing his work at the forefront of research on chiral phenomena. His research interests extend to the cavity control of quantum materials and the broader application of quantum information science perspectives within condensed matter systems. Dr. Lin’s curiosity also leads him to explore the intricacies of quantum simulation and the mechanisms of quantum transduction.
He earned his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Texas at Austin, where he was mentored by esteemed Professors Allan MacDonald and Gregory Fiete. His doctoral research delved deep into the theoretical study of nonlinear phononics control in van der Waals magnets. Before that he earned his bachelor’s degree in 2017 in Nanjing University, focusing on the physics of topological insulators and topological superconductors.
Outside of his rigorous academic pursuits, Ze-Xun enjoys staying active and has a particular fondness for badminton.
