Changxu Liu

My current research interests are in the areas of metamaterials, plasmonics, nanotechnology and nanophotonics, with particular focus on innovative aspects of wave interaction in disordered systems.My (co)first-author papers have appeared in several high-impact journals, including NatureNanotechnology, Nature Photonics, Nature Physics, Physical Review Letters, Physical Review X, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Light Sci. & App. and ACS Nano. Some of my recent research work has been picked up by national and international media outlets,such as The Wall Street Journal, Independent, Daily Mail, Yahoo and Guinness World Record.
