Welcome to the website of  Prof. Tao Li's research page!
We hope that you can take this chance to look around and find something interesting and informative.

Our research is dedicated to exploit new optical phenomena and the underlying physics in micro/nanoscale from viewpoints of classical and quantum, where the plasmonics and metamaterials are mainly concerned. To keep pace with the ever increasing information processing, we are aiming to develop new types of the on-chip photonic integrations and disruptive optical devices

Prof. Tao LI (李涛), received his PhD degree in Physics in NJU, 2005. He joined CEAS of NJU in 2008, and was promoted to full professor in Dec. 2013. He was selected to "Dengfeng Talent Program B" of NJU in 2012, and won the "National Funds for Outstanding Young Scientists" and "K.C. Wong Education Foundation" in 2013, award "Person of Year 2017" by Scientific Chinese and "Young and middle-aged leading scientists, engineers and innovators" by MOST in 2018. Up to date, he has published more than 80 peer-reviewed journal papers (including Nature Nanotech., Nature Comm., Phys. Rev. Lett., Nano Lett., Light Sci. Appl., Laser Photon. Rev., etc), which received more than 2500 citations with a current H-index of 28 (Web of Science).
