Dr. Xu Fang

Project
Optical Data Processing with Metamaterials

Short CV
Xu Fang completed his undergraduate studies in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of Tsinghua University in 2004, and his PhD studies in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2009. Between 2009 and 2012 he was a postdoctoral researcher in RIKEN (The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research), Japan. Since June 2012 he is first a research fellow and then a senior research fellow at the Optoelectronics Research Centre. His current research interests are in metamaterials and ultrafast optics.

As of June, 2016, he is a lecturer in the School of Electronics and Computer Science.
