Professor Baohua Jia
Professor Baohua Jia is a research leader at Swinburne’s Centre for Micro-Photonics and Program Leader for Swinburne’s Manufacturing Futures Research Institute.
Her research is focused on a range of areas includes laser nanofabrication of novel photonic nanostructures, investigation of functionality and nonlinear effects inside 3D photonic nanostructures, development of active photonic devices facilitated with nanoemitters and development of novel nanoplasmonic devices with laser nanofabrication. She also examines the employment of nanostructures and nanomaterials for solar energy harvesting and storage research, and has recently focused her research on laser interaction with two-dimensional materials and functional devices.
Professor Jia’s research findings on cutting-edge nanophotonics solar cells has been highlighted in the MIT Technology Review with more than 150 media reports worldwide. From 2006-2012, Professor Jia served as a Project Manager/Project Leader for the Centre for Ultrahigh-bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS, an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence) managing the key flagship projects ‘3D bandgap confinement' and 'Nanoplasmonic’. Alongside her research and academic work, she is also the honorary treasurer of Australian Optical Society.
