Thermal Sciences Group @ Tsinghua SIGS

Welcome to the Sun group! We are a research group led by Prof. Bo Sun at Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School (Tsinghua SIGS) and Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute (TBSI).
We explore thermal/phonon transport properties of semiconductors, polymers and across metal/semicondutor & semiconductor/semicondutor interfaces using state-of-the-art optical pump probe spectroscopies. Our research is highly interdisciplinary and spans from fundmental physics to applications in semicondutor industry.
