Patents do not have authors, they have inventors and they have applicants. Typing the document number into google patents immediately brings the answer up. Only Chinese names of the inventors are shown. enter image description here

Inventors are the actual people who had the novel idea. Applicants might be those same people or might be a company or a person that the inventors work for or sold the invention to. After the patent issues the applicant owns the patent and can sell it to yet another person or company who would then the owner. – George White Feb 28 '14 at 7:07
