Introduction

Dr. Xing-Can Yao was born in Chong Qing, November 1983. He obtained the bachelor's and doctor's degree in 2006 and 2012, respectively, both in University of Science and Technology of China. He is now a professor of USTC and an awardee of the Young 1000 Talent Plan (2017). He is devoted to the experimental study of the fundamental quantum physics and quantum information processing with ultracold atoms and photons. He has achieved several experimental breakthroughs, including the realization of eight photon entanglement, demonstrating of topological quantum error correction, observation of coupled vortex lattices in a Bose and Fermi double superfluid, and etc. Both of these experiments have been actively discussed in many scientific meetings and reported in many scientific media such as Nature, Nature Physics, Physics world, technology review. Until now, he has published many papers on the high-profile journals, including 1 Nature, 3 Nature Photonics, 1 Nature Physics, 4 Physical Review Letters, and etc. His research work have been selected twice as the "China's top ten science and technology news" and "China's top ten scientific progress". His PhD thesis was awarded as "100 outstanding doctoral theses of Chinese Academy of Science".
