Shanghai Key Laboratory of Modern Optics and Systems

Shanghai Key Laboratory of Modern Optics and Systems, approved by Shanghai Science and Technology Commission, was founded in 2006. The Director of the key laboratory is Professor Zhuang Songlin, the academic leader of the optical engineering discipline (a first-level discipline offering doctoral program), academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, President of China Instrument and Control Society, Director of Shanghai Instrument and Control Society, and member of Shanghai CPPCC. The laboratory has successfully passed the accreditation by Shanghai Science and Technology Commission in August 2008, November 2011, November 2014, and December 2017. It was rated as the Excellent Laboratory in the 2014 and 2017 respectively and ranked the first of the laboratories in the engineering field. The accreditations have boosted the development of the laboratory, and helped it build scientific research bases, align with international standards, gather top talents, innovate management models, and support the construction of high-level universities.

Infrastructure facilities

The laboratory has developed rapidly in recent years with the financial support from USST. The total investment has reached about 90 million yuan in the past three years. So far the key laboratory covers a total area of 12,000 square meters. After years of construction, the laboratory can meet the experimental requirements of the ongoing research. But it is still endeavoring to satisfy the new research needs from the discipline. The total value of the instruments in the key laboratory has reached more than 160 million yuan. There are more than 100 sets of large-scale instruments in the key laboratory, the value of each set exceeding 0.3 million yuan.
