US Dropped Charges against Professor Accused of Spying for China

American prosecutors have finally sought to dismiss charges against a Chinese professor accused of stealing secret US technology. Physicists explained that the investigators had simply misunderstood the technology.


Four counts of wire fraud against the professor of the Temple University physics, Xi Xiaoxing, were dropped, with the government saying that the motion was based on information it received after filing the charges against the 57-year-old professor.

Xi Xiaoxing and his lawyer gave a presentation to investigators a few weeks ago, which included affidavits from the famous physicists and experts who studied the emails between the professor and his contacts in China. All experts agree that he was simply involved in a completely different scientific pursuit with a very narrow commercial application and not involving restricted technology.

However, an American district judge still must approve the motion. The professor’s lawyer explained that federal prosecutors wanted to confer with their own outside experts and had reserved the right to bring charges again. Apparently, the prosecutors believed that Xi Xiaoxing was sending data related to equipment for which he had signed a nondisclosure agreement. When Xi was arrested this past spring, prosecutors said he had participated in a Chinese government program involving technology innovation before taking a sabbatical 13 years ago to work with an American company developing a thin-film superconducting device. Prosecutors claimed the professor exploited his US findings for the benefit of third parties in China, including government entities. Xi Xiaoxing was accused of sharing secret data with the help of his post-doctoral students from China.

Fortunately, it turned out that the professor was sending information about another device, which he helped invent. The latter was not restricted technology and didn’t have to be kept secret by a nondisclosure agreement – just a typical academic collaboration. Indeed, the industry observers confirmed that this equipment couldn’t make anyone rich. In any case, the secret equipment was already patented and now anyone can look up plans on how to make it online.

Xi Xiaoxing was chairman of Temple’s physics department until his arrest. After this incident, he had to voluntarily step down as chairman and remained a faculty member. The professor is a naturalized US citizen born in China.
