Special Issue on the 70th Anniversary of CIOMP

Founded in 1952, the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) focuses on the study of luminescence, applied optics, optical engineering, and precision mechanics and instrumentation. There are currently 2,578 faculty and staff members, including three academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), 343 research professors and 739 associate research professors.

The hard work of brilliant scientists such as WANG Daheng and XU Xurong has seen CIOMP develop more than a dozen “First of China” advanced instruments, including China’s first ruby laser and its first large theodolite, etc. CIOMP has helped to set up more than 10 research institutes, colleges, and enterprises, sending 2,800 researchers to work in other national institutions in the last 70 years. Among these people, 27 have already been elected academicians of CAS or the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE).

CIOMP is a key base for CAS graduate student education. It offers nine master's degree programs and seven doctoral degree programs. Currently, CIOMP has around 1,200 graduate students.It hosts an International Optoelectronic Innovation Cluster, 6 State Key Laboratories and research centers, 5 CAS Key Laboratories, and 2 International Joint Laboratories. In the Changchun Optoelectronics Industrial Park, there are more than 30 high-tech companies set up with investment support from CIOMP whose total assets now have reached 403 million USD. Serving almost 100 companies, the national optoelectronic industry incubator provides an important public service platform for technology transfer in Jilin Province.

This special issue is dedicated to the celebration of the 70th anniversary of CIOMP (1952-2022). It includes all articles published by researchers of CIOMP in Light: Science & Applications between 2012-2022.
