Introduction to the Laser Technology Research Center

   The Laser Technology is part of the Knowledge Innovation Program of Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, which includes 10 important research fields. The Laser Technology Research Center is also one of four research divisions of Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, having three research labs, laser crystal and optical function material lab, laser technology and application lab, and fiber optics and optoelectronics lab.

The Laser Technology Research Center has been working in the fields of laser materials, devices and application technologies for nearly 40 years. During the past 40 years, the center engaged in various important national research and development programs on the topic of laser technology and gradually got high reputation in the research comminity in the country. For instance, with the expertises the center always keep on the top level in crystal growth in the country, especially the large-size laser crystals and the infrared nonlinear laser crystals. The center is the unique supplier in the country capable of buliding commercial excimer lasers, and also a famous solid-state laser and nonlinear laser technology research institution. After having optimized its research activities, the research fields of the center have been boadened to many important novel topics, and now the research activities include, growth and characteritation of laser crystals and infrared nonlinear crystals, fabrication and functionalization of optical films, solid-state lasers, excimer lasers, fiber lasers, nonlinear optical devices, micro- and nano- photonic devices, optical sensors and systems, OEM techniques, and optoelectronic equipment and instruments, etc.

Currently the center is engaging in many important research projects supported by Key Project of Chinese National Programs for Fundamental Research and Development (973), the National High Technology Research and Development Program (863), the National Natural Science Foundation, Zongzhuang Research Foundation, the "Hundreds of Talents Program" of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Knowledge Innovation Major Program Foundation of CAS, and so on.

The center has won more than 20 various government awards, including one 1st national advances in Science and Technology award, and one 1st and six 2nd advances in Science and Technology awards by the CAS. Since 2000, over 200 papers have been published in high-level magazines and more than 30 patents have been authorized.
The total number of staff is 51, of whom 15 hold their doctor degrees, including 10 full professors, 18 associate professors or senior engineers, 7 doctoral supervisors, 3 “Hundreds of Talents Program” of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The center jointly has 2 post-doctoral stations, and offers 3 PhD programs and 5 Master programs. At present, the full-time graduated students number over 90, of whom about half are doctoral students.
