Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) was founded in 1952 focusing on luminescence, applied optics, optical engineering, and precision mechanics and instrumentation. There are currently 2357 faculty and staff members, 303 professionals working at CIOMP, including 3 CAS academicians and 707 associate professors (by the end of July, 2019).


Since CIOMP's establishment, led by a group of scientists including WANG Daheng and XU Xurong, CIOMP has developed more than a dozen “First of China” advanced instruments such as the first ruby laser and the first large theodolite, etc. The research has resulted in more than 1,000 patents and 1,700 completed research projects. By sponsoring and helping to set up more than 10 research institutes, colleges, and enterprises, CIOMP has contributed 2,200 professionals to other national institutions, among whom 23 professionals have been elected as academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) or the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE). One of CIOMP’s outstanding scientists, JIANG Zhuying, has become a model Chinese intellectual and inspired many. CIOMP has been involved in many important national projects, such as the manned space projects. CIOMP has made great contributions to China's economic development and social progress.


CIOMP has formulated an integrated ‘Research, Industry, and Education’, and is increasing its abilities to realize the full potential of a wide range of endeavors. For instance, by breaking through key technological barriers, CIOMP successfully developed payloads for the Shenzhou V and Shenzhou VI rockets - part of the manned space program and the Tiangong-1 space station. In addition, CIOMP now hosts an International Optoelectronic Innovation Cluster, 6 State Key Laboratories and research centers, and 2 CAS Key Laboratories. There are more than 20 high-tech companies in the CAS Changchun Optoelectronics Industrial Park with investment support from CIOMP and total assets of 403 million USD. By serving almost 100 companies, the national optoelectronic industry incubator provides an important public service platform for technology transfer in Jilin Province.


CIOMP is also a key base for CAS graduate student education. It offers 8 master's degree programs, 6 doctoral degree programs and 3 postdoctoral programs. Currently, CIOMP has 929 graduate students, of which 451 are completing a Ph.D.


CIOMP closely follows principles that encourage open thinking that leads to flourishing activity. It actively undertakes international cooperation and communication with scientific institutes and universities at home and abroad. CIOMP has hosted many high-level international academic conferences such as the 20th Congress of the International Commission for Optics. CIOMP participates in many international collaborative projects such the Thirty Meter Telescope Project and carries out cooperation with globally recognized scientific institutes.


Partnering with Nature Publishing Group, CIOMP launched the international English language journal Light: Science & Applications in 2012. It reached a new milestone with a 2018 Impact Factor of 14.000 - placing it second in the globally competitive Optics category.


Now CIOMP has obtained a close cooperation with more than 10 countries including USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and UK, etc,. In 2016 Chunlei Guo China-US Photonics Laboratory was built by CIOMP and University of Rochester in CIOMP. CIOMP has also established extensive scientific partnerships and long-term exchange programs with science and technological units such as Delft University of Technology, University of Manchester, Abbe photonics center, Swinburne University of Technology and so on.


In future CIOMP’s focus is on research in optoelectronic technology and its application to the engineering and fabrication of precision instruments. By ensuring that our research in basic and applied optics is transformed and translated more broadly, CIOMP is aiding the development of related industries as well as nurturing a deep and valuable pool of experts.
