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 200 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.
The laboratory set up the achievement industrialization enterprises, H-chip Tech Group, Seetrum, and Lightfunction, with combined valuation more than 2 billion yuan.
Since its establishment, the laboratory has cultivated 50 PhD graduates and 51 master's graduates, among whom 19 have been awarded outstanding graduates of Beijing/Tsinghua University, outstanding doctoral/master's thesis and other awards. At present, there are 32 doctoral candidates and 9 master degree candidates.
