Professor Irving J. Bigio from Boston University, a fellow of OSA and SPIE, was invited to give a lecture entitled “Optical Biopsy: Detecting Cancer and Pre-cancer with Elastic Light Scattering Spectroscopy” on Sep.5th, 2016. In the evening, we organized a party on the theme of American life.
We have conducted the recruitment event during the summer semester together through elections. We have recruited around 20 new OSA student members and 12 SPIE student members this term. And now we have around 70 student members in our OSA/SPIE student chapter, including around 50 OSA student members.
Quanlong He, on behalf of all the members, attended the Student Chapter Leadership Workshop of SPIE, which was held in California, USA on Aug.27th, 2016.
Academic Salon of XIOPM is a very interesting event. If you have problems which are not in your field, for example, your major is optics but you encounter a mechanical problem in optical design, you can sign your name on the white board and if there are more than 30 names on the board, we’ll hold a group meeting in the form of Salon to solve this kind of problem together, we invite several experts to give professional lectures and do some simulations, students can also demonstrate their ideas to others, this is an efficient way for those who are confused to understand how and why. Besides, there are several display panels with some eye-catching social hot spots, as contemporary postgraduates and Ph.D. students, we must care about what is going on in society.
Prof. Zenghu Chang, the APS and OSA fellow as well as one of distinguished alumnus of our institute, was invited to give a scientific popularization lecture entitled “New Advances in Attosecond Optics” on May. 26th, 2016.
We organized Youth Academy with Provincial Youth League on Apr. 29th. Prof. Yuao Chen was invited to give a scientific popularization lecture entitled “Quantum Engineering in the Face of Future Information Technology”.
On the occasion of the centennial celebration of the OSA, through 5 months’ efforts and preparation, we successfully held the National Doctoral Academic Forum on Optics & Photonics (XIOPM 2016) http://ndaf2016.csp.escience.cn/dct/page/1, where 30 doctoral students from nation’s universities or institutes and 3 distinguished professors abroad presented lectures with a live audience of 300 from Apr. 27th to 29th, 2016. This was the first time for our OSA/SPIE student chapter to hold such a large-scale national conference. Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences Xun Hou, deputy director Xuelong Li as well as chapter president An Pan delivered opening speech respectively. Then Prof. Ci-ling Pan, vice president of National Tsing Hua University, a Fellow of APS, IEEE, OSA and SPIE, was invited to give a plenary talk entitled “Fiber-laser-based Noise-like-pulses: Generation, Characteristics and Applications.” Soon afterwards, Prof. Howard Carmichael from Auckland University, the pioneer of quantum trajectory theory and a fellow of APS and OSA, also gave a speech on “Sub-Poissonian Light of High Photon Number”. Finally, Prof. Yuao Chen from University of Science and Technology of China, the winner of 2013 Fresnel Prize, made a report entitled “Long-distance Quantum Key Distribution Network in China”. Besides, in the evening we cut a big cake with words “OSA 100 since 1916” on it. This event successfully provided a platform for academic exchanges, offering a direct connection between the world-leading scholars and students as well as a chance for studying abroad. This forum promoted the development of optical science and technology, helped students to widen their field of visions and improve professional skills, in addition, it significantly improved the influence of our institute and our OSA/SPIE Student Chapter.
Prof. Howard Carmichael from Auckland University was invited to give a speech on the history, culture as well as humanistic amorous feelings of New Zealand, sharing the experience of his personal growth on the evening of Apr. 26th, 2016.
For the members’ requirement, we held experience-sharing session on Dec. 1st, 2015. Dr. Li was invited to give a lecture entitled “Saving time and devoting to research”, sharing his personal experience on National Graduate Student Electronic Designing Competition. In addition, the report “Experience on Publishing Papers” was presented by Dr. Cui, he introduced various academic journals and some practical scientific writing skills. All the members were actively involved in interaction and discussion, Expected results were successfully achieved.
