Dr. Yaonan Hou

Project
Toroidal electrodynamics

Short CV
Dr. Yaonan Hou received his PhD degree in Condensed Matter Physics from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing National Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics) in 2012. Afterwards, he joined department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (home to EPSRC National Epitaxy Facility), University of Sheffield as a Research Associate (transferred to an open-end position at 2016) in GaN based wide band gap semiconductor photonic devices. In 2017, he joined Innovation for High-Performance Microelectronics (known as IHP, a research institute belongs to Leibniz Association in Germany) as a Scientist in Group-IV semiconductor photonics. In 2019, he started the research in toroidal electrodynamics at ORC, University of Southampton as a Research Fellow. He is interested in toroidal pulse-matter interactions.
