    Yidong Huang was born in Beijing, China. She received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in optoelectronics from Tsinghua University, Beijing,China, in 1988 and 1994, respectively. From 1991 to 1993, she was with Arai Laboratories, Tokyo Institute of Technology,Japan, on leave from the Tsinghua University. In 1994, she joined the Photonic and Wireless Devices Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation, where she was engaged in the research on semiconductor laser diodes for optical-fiber communication and became an assistant manager in 1998. She received “Merit Award” and “Contribution Award” from NEC Corporation in 1997 and 2003, respectively. She joined the Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University in 2003 as a professor, and be appointed by the Changjiang Distinguished Professor and the National Talents Engineering in 2005 and 2007, respectively.

    Professor Huang was vice chairman (2007-2012) and chairman (2013-2019) of the Department of Electronic Engineering, and the first founding dean of the Institute for Electronics and Information Technology in Tianjin, Tsinghua University (2015-2019). She is one of the main founders of the electronic information curriculum system of Tsinghua University. Now she is vice chairman of Academic Committee of Tsinghua University.

   Professor Huang is presently engaged in research on nano-structure optoelectronics. She authored/co-authored more than 300 journal and conference papers and holds more than 180 patents. She is the founder of H-chip Tech Co., Ltd, Seetrum Tech Co., Ltd, and Lightfunction Tech Co. Ltd.

  Professor Huang is a International Member of the United States National Academy of Engineering, Fellow of OSA, deputy member of Director Board of Chinese Optical Society, vice president of Chinese Electronic Education Association, and associate editor of ACS Photonics.

Research Group
Lab of Nano-Optoelectronics
Nano-Optoelectronics Lab. was founded in 2004, dedicated to exploring novel physical effects and optoelectronic characteristics of nanostructured materials and developing next generation optoelectronic and quantum functional devices, aiming at increasing requirements of new energy, environmental protection, biomedicine, and other fields for the modern society.
After more than ten years of efforts, it has formed a scientific research team composed 5 tenured professor/associate professors and more than 40 doctoral/master students and engineers. A complete platform for the design, fabrication, and testing of micro-nano structured optoelectronic materials and devices has been established, and the world-leading fabrication technology for micro-nano structure has been developed. Cutting-edge researches in optomechanical, surface plasmon polariton, silicon-based light/quantum device, and quantum information system have been carried out, and a series of achievements have been obtained, such as on chip free electron radiation, real-time spectral imaging, optical orbital angular momentum emitter, phonon lasing, generation and manipulation of quantum states, as well as some quantum systems, like QKD distribution quantum network, quantum ghost imaging over optical fibers, and so on.
The laboratory has published more than 260 papers in academic journals and cited thousands of times. The team members have been invited to give talk at international conferences and the students have won the best paper or best Poster award for 11 times.
Since its establishment, the laboratory has cultivated 46 PhD graduates and 49 master's graduates, among whom 16 have been awarded outstanding graduates of Beijing/Tsinghua University, outstanding doctoral/master's thesis and other awards. At present, there are 29 doctoral candidates and 9 master degree candidates.
