Research Interests
 As one of the research pioneers in polarisation-sensitive nanophotonics, Dr. Li has published over 36 internationally referred journal publications including Nature Photonics, Nature Communications and Scientific Reports. He demonstrated the world's first multi-dimensional optical security technique as well as three-dimensional polarisation-encrypted ultra-secure storage using the polarisation state of light, and opened an entirely new land of polarisation-sensitive nanophotonics and its innovative applications in photonic information technologies.
