Liang Feng, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, is one of the 126 recipients of the 2020 Sloan Research Fellowship, along side fellow Penn faculty members Erica Korb of the Perelman School of Medicine, and Weijie Su of the Wharton School.

The award recognizes early-career researchers and scholars in the United States and Canada. Each recipient receives a two-year, $70,000 Fellowship for their research.

Feng, who also has an appointment in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, studies the intersection of nanomaterials and photonics, with an eye toward applications in computer and communication systems. By exploring quantum symmetry to design materials that can generate photons with properties necessary for their use as a carrier of information, or efficiently route them from place to place on a photonic computer chip, Feng aims to develop the circuit architecture necessary for the next generation of sensing, computational, and communication technologies.
