Our news

  • We have realized an extended topological mode in acoustics. Congrats to Xulong for his first first-author

  • Can long-range interactions be stronger than short-range ones in a material? We use new tricks to achieve this in acoustics and demonstrate unconventional topological modes. Congratulations to Dongyi on her first PRL! (Oct. 2023)

  • We relax and rejoice in a group excursion to Hailing Island in Guangdong! See photos. (Sep. 2023)

  • Guanqing has successfully defended his PhD thesis. Congratulations! (Aug. 2023)


  • Mr. Tanguy Delaporte, a student from ESPCI, is spending three months with us as an intern. (May 2023)

  • We show how to improve the quality of focal spots when focusing through random media using spatial wave modulators. There are some interesting findings that surprise us. Find out in our paper on PR Applied. (Mar. 2023)


  • Incoming group member: Xiaoming Wang from South China Normal University. (Jan. 2023) 


  • In our new paper in PRL, we use non-Hermitian skin effect to turn a BIC (bound state in a continuum) "upside down." (Dec. 2022)

  • Dr. Dongyi Wang has joined our group from Fudan University. (Sep. 2022) 

  • ​New paper in Nature! We show how topological modes can be entirely delocalized from boundaries with the help of non-Hermitian skin effects. (Aug. 2022)


  • In a new paper in PR Applied, we demonstrate the possibility of controlling disordered transient sound using reconfigurable metasurfaces. Congratulations to Qiyuan, the youngest of our group members, on his first-ever paper! And big thanks to our collaborator Dr. Philipp del Hougne from Univ. Rennes! (Apr. 2022)

  • Our first attempt at photonics ends up in Nature Photonics! Grateful to Prof. Xu-Lin Zhang and Prof. Hong-Bo Sun (and other collaborators) of Jilin University for the amazing on-chip non-Abelian photonic braiding experiment! (Mar. 2022)

  • ​By taking advantage of non-Hermitian topology, we demonstrate the complete set of permutations in a non-Abelian D3 group. Read about it in our new paper on National Science Review. (Jan. 2022)
