The Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) was founded in 1952. CIOMP is the first in new China to set up the national scientific research institute with optics as main research field. More than half a century despite wind and rain , CIOMP has always been self-reliance and arduous pioneering which also met the major needs of the country as its responsibility. CIOMP has obtained brilliant achievements in scientific and technological innovation, talents cultivating and results transformation and transfer and made great contributions to China’s national defense construction, economic growth, and social progress. So CIOMP was known as “the Cradle of China’s Optics” .
After entering the new century, according to the CAS’s Knowledge Innovation Project deployment, CIOMP has strengthen the forward-looking technology layout and management mechanism innovation facing the major needs of the country and the national economy. CIOMP has also taken a solid pace in the development road of 3-in-1 strategy of “Research, Industry, and Education” with innovation in science and technology as core and made considerable progress. Seeing into the future, in the face of the historical opportunity of the development strategy of national implementation innovation driven, CIOMP new generation will build a world-class precision instrument and equipment innovation research base as its goal, with “Pioneer Initiative” General Secretary XI Jinping proposed as a guide and CAS “Innovation 2020” overall deployment, shoulder the burden and move forward.
We are willing to make extensive communication and cooperation with domestic and foreign experts and all friends of the society, make a new contribution to the development of science and technology and contribute to realize the great rejuvenation of Chinese nation namely“China Dream”.
