Yun-Feng Xiao received his B.S. and Ph.D. in physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2002 and 2007, respectively. After postdoctoral research at Washington University in St. Louis, he joined the faculty of Peking University in 2009, where he was promoted to tenured associate professor in 2014 and to full professor in 2019. His research interests lie in the fields of microcavity photonics, including quantum and nonlinear optics, asymmetric resonant cavities and wave chaos, and microcavity optical sensing. He is an Optical Society of America Fellow and has served on the organizing committee for more than 30 international conferences.


Microdrop Concentrates Light Modes

Tiny oil droplets levitated in optical tweezers can host several hundred light modes with similar energies, a feature that could be exploited for sensing and telecommunications. Read More »
