Profile Summary

Prof. Baoli Yao obtained the Ph.D. degree at Xi'an Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics, CAS in 1997, and pursued the postdoctoral work in Technical University of Munich, Germany during 1997-1998. He is currently the director of State Key Laboratory of Transient Optics and Photonics. His research areas include: super-resolution optical microscopy, digital holographic microscopy, optical micro-manipulation and micro-fabrication, optical data storage and information processing. He invented the DMD-based LED-illumination structured illumination microscope (SIM) and got the 90nm lateral resolution. He designed and developed an optical tweezers system, which has been successfully commercialized and exported to Canada. He proposed a new theoretical description for the vector beams, and predicted the improvement of axial trapping efficiency by radially polarized beams. He proposed a new approach to generation of multiple isotropic super-diffraction-limit focused spots and the dynamic shifting method. He implemented the high density holographic optical encoded data storage in biomaterial. He has published more than 260 papers in peer-reviewed journals and 6 book’s chapters, and owned 18 approved Chinese invention patents. He obtained the High-Speed Imaging Award of Japan in 2015.
