Xiaoyang Liu

Xiaoyang is from Shandong, China. Her first contact with us was an optics rotation project in the fall of 2015 on wavefront shearing interferometry, and soon afterward she joined our research group.  She began her research work on the Rydberg-STIRAP experiment with Vlad Zakharov and is continuing with help from Brian Arnold.
