Hong-Bo Sun, received the B.S. and the Ph.D. degrees in electronics from Jilin University, China, in 1992 and 1996, respectively. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Satellite Venture Business Laboratory, the University of Tokushima, Japan, from 1996 to 2000, and then as an assistant professor in Department of Applied Physics, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan. In 2005, he was promoted as a full professor (Changjiang Scholar) in Jilin University, China. His research interests have been focused on ultrafast optoelectronics, particularly on laser nanofabrication and ultrafast spectroscopy: Fabrication of various micro-optical, microelectronical, micromechanical, microoptoelectronic, microfluidic components and their integrated systems at nanoscale, and exploring ultrafast dynamics of photons, electrons, phonons, and surface plasmons in solar cells, organic light-emitting devices and low-dimensional quantum systems at femtosecond timescale. So far, he has published over 300 scientific papers in the above fields, which have been cited more than 11000 times, with a H-factor of 52 according to ISI search report. He is currently the topical editor of Optics Letters (OSA), Topical editor of Light: Science and Applications (Nature Publishing Group), editorial board member of Chinese Science Bulletin (Springer), and editorial advisory board member of Nanoscale (RSC) and Display and Imaging (Old City Publishing).
