Haiding Sun was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Professor Xiaohang Li at the Advanced Semiconductor Laboratory at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). 

Education and Early Career

Dr. Sun received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Boston University, Massachusetts, in the United States in 2015. His Ph.D. dissertation title was “Development of Aluminum Gallium Nitride-Based Emitters In The Form of Graded-Index Separate Confinement Heterostructure (GRINSCH)."

Research Interests

Dr. Sun ’s research works cover various aspects of semiconductor device designs (theoretical and computational), material growth (epitaxy), thin film deposition, device fabrication and operation of III-nitrides-based ultraviolet and visible light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes (LDs) on sapphire and SiC substrates. His research topics include the physics of quantum well structures and nanostructures (quantum dots or wires), as well as the engineering of advanced device concepts (photonic crystals and surface plasmonics) for high-efficiency LEDs for solid-state lighting applications.
