Xingjie Ni, Ph.D.

Research Description

Xingjie Ni is an assistant professor of electrical engineering at Penn State. Xingjie’s invention is a brighter quantum light source that could ultimately increase the speed, scale, and security of information transmission in quantum communication and computing.

While ‘invisibility cloaks’ may sound like fiction, one of the tangible applications of Xingjie’s invention is optical camouflage, which has real-world applications across aviation and healthcare.
