    Qian Sun received the B.S. degree in Material Physics and the B. Eng. degree in Computer Science & Engineering from University of Science & Technology of China (USTC). He received his M. Eng. degree in Microelectronics & Solid State Electronics from Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Yale University. He was with Bridgelux Inc., Livermore, California, where he made the key contribution to the R&D of 160 lm/W GaN-based LED grown on 8-inch Si substrates. He currently is a professor at Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Suzhou, China. He leads a team working on GaN-on-Si research for blue/green/UV LEDs, laser diodes, and power electronics. He was the recipient of the National Technological Invention Award (2015) from the Chinese Central Government, the Exceptional Youth Award (2015) from the National Natural Science Foundation (NSF) of China, the 'Innovative Talent' Award (2012) from the Jiangsu Province Government, the National '1000 Young Talents' Award (2011) from the Chinese Central Government, Henry Prentiss Becton Prize (2010) from Yale University, Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad Award (2009) from Chinese Government, and Guo Moruo Presidential Award (2002) from USTC. He holds 5 PCT patents and over 20 China patents, and has authored/co-authored over 70 peer-reviewed international journal publications and a book chapter.
