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: Integrated Photonic Emerging Solutions (IPES)
Our missions are: Addressing critical problems faced by the photonics industry today through innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in integrated devices and circuits on semiconductors; Educating a new generation of creative and highly-skilled semiconductor device engineers, who will be the driving force for technological innovation in industry and academia.

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!
