CIOMP researchers make breakthrough in 2D Cationic Covalent Organic Frameworks
Professor LI Bin and his team at State Key Laboratory of Luminescence and Applications in CIOMP have developed red emissive 2D Cationic Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) with tunable porosity and pore sizes at nanoscale. This is the ？rst time that the stable cationic crystalline frame...
Fabricating large-scale mirrors using reaction-bonded silicon carbide
One of the most effective methods of improving telescope resolution is to increase the diameter of the primary mirror. It is challenging, however, to fabricate very large diameters with complex surface shapes. For example, milling and polishing of the mirror surfaces can take months or ...
Impact factor of LSA ranks No.2 among all optical journals for two consecutive years
According to the 2016 Journal Citation Report (JCR 2015) released on 13th June, Light: Science & Applications (hereinafter referred to as LSA) has received its 3rd impact factor of 13.6, consecutively ranking No.2 among all SCI-indexed optical journals of 90 kinds. On year-on-year basis...
China Successfully Develops Vital 4 m Diameter Mirror Component
The Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, has successfully developed a silicon carbide (SiC) single mirror blank – a vital component for creating a large-scale telescope.
CIOMP researchers make breakthrough with carbon nanodots
Professor Songnan Qu and his team at CIOMP have developed strong orange emissive carbon nanodots (CNDs) with a fluorescent quantum yield of up to 46% – almost double that previously achieved for long-wavelength emissive CNDs. This work was recently published in the journal Advanced Mat...
