Xiaojing Xia

Materials Science and Engineering

As a graduate student in the lab of Materials Science and Engineering professor Peter Pauzauskie, Xiaojing studied lanthanide-doped fluoride and semiconductor materials for solid-state laser cooling. More specifically, she developed new laser cooling nanoparticles and designed a self-cooling high-power fiber laser using these materials. After completing her Ph.D. in 2022, Xiaojing joined Dr. Emory Chan’s team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a postdoc scholar. Xiaojing’s current research interest is experiment automation. She is working on AI-accelerated high-throughput synthesis and characterization of upconverting nanoparticles.
