Hi, welcome to Honglie Ning’s research website! I am an condensed matter experimentalist focused on investigating the nonequilibrium dynamics and the emergent phenomena of strongly correlated and topological materials upon light irradiation. Employing a suite of time-resolved techniques including optical spectroscopy and polarimetry, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, and electron and X-ray diffraction, I am able to selectively detect the time evolution of different degrees of freedom inside the material and manipulate the quantum phases of the system in an ultrafast manner with possibly no equilibrium analogues.
Currently I am a postdoc working with Prof. Nuh Gedik in the Department of Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to my current position, I earned my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Physics at California Institute of Technology in 2022, working with Prof. David Hsieh, and obtained my B.S. degree in physics with Honors from Peking University in 2016.
Please feel free to explore my personal website to learn more about me. Thank you for checking out!
