Xi-Lin Wang now is a research professor at the University of Science and Technology of China. His research interest focus on photonic quantum information processing with multi photons in multiple degrees of freedom including polarization, orbital angular momentum and path. As first author, he published the work on quantum teleportation with multiple degrees of freedom in 2015 [Nature 518, 516-519 (2015)], which was elected as “Breakthrough of the Year 2015” by IOP Physics World. In 2016, he generated ten-photon entanglement as first author [Phys. Rev. Lett.
