Paulina S. Kuo received S.B. degrees in physics and materials science in 2000 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2008) degrees in applied physics from Stanford University.
She came to NIST in 2008 as a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow and worked as research associate in the NIST Physical Measurement Laboratory on optical frequency conversion in GaAs microdisk cavities. Between 2010 and 2013, she held a joint appointment with the Joint Quantum Institute at the University of Maryland. Since 2011, she has been with the Quantum Communications research group in the NIST Information Technology Laboratory working on quantum optics, single photon sources and detectors.
Dr. Kuo is a member of OSA and SPIE.
Opportunities for research in quantum frequency conversion and other quantum communications topics may be available. US citizens interested in applying to my NRC RAP postdoctoral opportunity are encouraged to contact me via email.
