Jensen Li 李贊恒

  • Fellowship in 2005 at Imperial College London

Jensen Li is a Professor of the Department of Physics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He received his BEng from the University of Hong Kong, his MPhil, and PhD from HKUST in 2004. After that, he received the Croucher Foundation postdoctoral fellowship and worked at Imperial College London. Before his return to HKUST in 2017, he was a Reader in Photonics at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom.


Jensen's research revolves around various extraordinary wave phenomena given by metamaterials, which are synthetic composite materials with properties not found in nature. They usually appear as an array of resonating structures with a size less than a wavelength of your interest. Prominent applications are on invisibility cloaking and super-resolution imaging. His current interests are in acoustic metamaterials, optical metasurfaces, transformation optics, and non-Hermitian physics. His lab currently designs and characterizes metamaterials for airborne acoustics, elastic waves in solids and the optical domain.
