Each lab tour will pass through the following labs:

Lab 1: Liquid Crystal Displays
In the first part of this lab, you’ll see the basics in display – the brightness control and color generation. Then, some cutting-edge display technologies will be shown: blue phase liquid crystal with the world’s fastest response time, quantum dots generating vivid colors, switchable lens changing the image location in virtual reality/augmented reality… Come to learn and enjoy!

Lab 2: Optical Nanoscopy
We are interested in the development and applications of novel optical tools to study essential problems in chemistry, biology and neuroscience. We apply diverse knowledge and skills in optics, photonics, physical chemistry, materials sceince and biology. Our current research is focused on fluorescence nanoscopy (super-resolution microscopy), quantitative single-molecule imaging and fluorescent probes.

Lab 3: Fiber Optics
Our lab research in optical fiber applications and devices, including photonic lantern which bring the possibility of building space division multiplexed transmission networks (the network in further), and supercontinuum spectrum generation results from the synergy of several nonlinear and linear processes. Come to learn more!
