Prof. Baoli Yao received the B.S. degree in Applied Physics at Xi'an Jiaotong University, China in 1990, and the Ph.D. degree in Optics at Xi'an Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics, CAS in 1997. He pursued the postdoctor at Institute for Physical Chemistry, Technical University of Munich, Germany during 1997-1998. He obtained the professorship at XIOPM in 1999. He has had more than 20 years professional experience in optics & photonics after obtaining the Ph.D. degree in 1997. He is a senior member of OSA, and the director of State Key Laboratory of Transient Optics and Photonics, China. His research interests include: super-resolution and 3D optical microscopy, digital holographic microscopy, optical micro-manipulation and micro-fabrication, optical data storage and information processing. He invented the DMD-based LED-illumination structured illumination microscope (D-SIM) and got the 90nm lateral resolution. He designed and developed an optical tweezers system, which has been successfully commercialized and exported to Canada. He proposed a new theoretical description for the vector beams, and predicted the improvement of axial trapping efficiency by radially polarized beams. He proposed a new approach to generation of multiple isotropic super-diffraction-limit focused spots and the dynamic shifting method. He implemented the high density holographic optical encoded data storage in biomaterial. He has published more than 230 papers in peer-reviewed journals and 6 book’s chapters, and owned 18 China & 1 US invention patents. He obtained the “High-speed Imaging Award of Japan” in 2015.
