Dr. Ni received his Ph.D. degree in physics from National University of Singapore in 2013. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California San Diego from 2014 to 2017 and postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University from 2017 to 2019. Dr. Ni joined the faculty at Florida State University in 2020.
We focus on experimental condensed matter physics and optical physics, specifically, utilizing advanced nano-optics coupled with nano-electronics to study new phase of matters in quantum materials with unprecedentedly spatial, spectral and temporal resolutions. This includes the visible, infrared and terahertz nano-imaging & ultrafast pump-probe nano-spectroscopy investigations of emergent physics and phenomena in two-dimensional materials and van der Waals heterostructures, multifunctional quantum systems, electromagnetic matematerials and beyond.
