Xiaofeng Li

Xiaofeng Li (BS, Caltech)  

Xiaofeng Li attended Tsinghua University, Beijing, China for undergraduate study in 1998. After two years, he transferred to California Institute of Technology (Caltech), where he received the B. S. degree in electrical engineering in 2004. He is currently working toward the Ph. D. degree in electrical engineering and applied physics at Harvard University.

Xiaofeng's main research focus is on the design & experimentation of GHz-to-THz ultrafast quantum circuits using nanoscale devices, such as quantum dots, nanowires, and carbon nanotubes. This research includes fundamental study of collective behaviors, quantum effects, and coupling with EM fields in high-frequency electron transport in low dimension.

Xiaofeng also made a central contribution to what was his hobby project: he provided key physical explanations for many important apsects of the first electrical soliton oscillator developed by David Ricketts.

Xiaofeng was the recipient of a Gold Medal at the 29th International Physicsl Olympiad, Reykjavik, Iceland, 1998. He also ranked 1st (absolute winner) twice in the Boston Area Undergraduate Physics Competition (U.S. intercollegiate physics competition) in both 2001 and 2002. Xiaofeng was the recipient of the 2002 Caltech Henry Ford II Scholar Award, 2004 Harvard Pierce Fellowship, and 2005 Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award.
