Professor Wang studies a variety of quantum optic phenomena using photons in various states of coherence and entanglement. One field of study concerns the fundamental properties of the quantum phenomenon called complementarity. One method of studying these properties involves using delayed choice interferometry with entangled photons. Another subject of recent interest is interaction free measurement where an object can be detected with multiple interferometers without the object absorbing any photons. Her research also involves applications such as the measurement of optical material thickness and index of refraction using down converted photon pairs, and investigating the piezoelectric properties of ceramic capacitors for use in nanomotion applications. Dr. Wang is also interested in non-contact nanometer scale distance and sound measurement which has potential applications to study sound produced by bacteria, or monitoring the shape of hohlraum during laser fusion experiments. She also has theoretical interest in electromagnetically induced transparency, slow light, quantum feedback control and simulation of quantum systems.
