Prof. LI Baojun, graduated from the Northwest Normal University, Lanzhou, China, in 1987 with a B.Sc degree in physics, received the M.Sc degree in semiconductor physics and semiconductor device physics from the Lanzhou University, China, in 1993, and the Ph.D degree in microelectronics from the Xi'an Jiaotong University, China, in 1998. From July 1998 to February 2000, he was with the Fudan University, Shanghai, China, where he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Physics, Surface Physics National Key Laboratory. March 2000 to February 2002, he was with the Advanced Materials for Micro- & Nano- Systems, the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) and Center for Optoelectronics, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the National University of Singapore, Singapore, first as a Postdoctoral Fellow and then a Research Fellow. April to October 2002, he was with the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, Singapore, where he was a Research Fellow. October 2002 to May 2009, he was with the Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China, as a full Professor in the School of Physics and Engineering and the State Key Laboratory of Optoelectronic Materials and Technologies and acting as a director for the Research Laboratory for Optoelectronic Integration and Lasers. May to November 2009, he was with the University of Oxford, UK, as an Academic Visitor in the Department of Physics and Clarendon Laboratory. At present, he is a Chang Jiang Scholar Professor in the School of Physics and Engineering and the State Key Laboratory of Optoelectronic Materials and Technologies, Sun Yat-sen University.

He has published about 100 peer-refereed research papers in his area of interest in international journals, including Scientific Reports, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, Advanced Materials, Lab on a Chip, Chemical Communications, Nanoscale, etc., authored/co-authored eight granted US and China patents with one licensed to a company, given over 20 invited talks in international conferences including keynote and plenary talks, edited two books and contributed to one book chapter. He is the inventor of the 3x2 optical waveguide switches and the high carrier injection optical waveguide switches, and the first to use PTT polymer in photonics and to produce the PTT nanowire-based low-loss miniaturized photonic coupling splitters by a twisting technique. Currently, he serves as an editorial board member for six scientific journals. His research interests are optoelectronic devices and integration, nanophotonics and technology, and energy photonics and application.
