Biographical Information

Liejia Qian was born in 1965. He received the Ph. D. degree in optics from Chinese Academia of Science, China, in 1989, for his work on femtosecond dye lasers. From 1991 to 1993, he was a Post doctor at Politecnico de Milano, Milano, Italy, and was engaged in the research of high-power solid-state laser and its intracavity frequency doubling. In 1993, he joined the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Shanghai, China, as a Senior Researcher. Since 2009, he has been a Professor in the Department of Physics, Shanghai Jiao tong University. He spent the academic years of 1997 to 1999 on leave at the School of Applied Engineering Physics, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. During the years of 2001-2008, he was a Professor in the Department of Optical Science and Engineering, Fudan University.
