Research areas at OESE
As a result of years of research efforts, the OESE has developed two remarkable features.
1) It has made a global impact in the area of nano-manufacturing, especially in the area of ‘interference lithography’, ‘laser direct writing lithography’, ‘high throughput nanoimprinting technology’, and ‘sub-wavelength optical technology’, and has led to the creation of the most advanced optical nano-manufacturing center in China.
2) As a result of pioneering work led by Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (Prof. Minqiu Xue and Prof. Junhua Pan), OESE has acquired a high reputation in advanced optical design, manufacturing and testing technologies, and is one of the most famous center for optical system design, manufacturing and testing.

The School of Optoelectronics Science and Engineering (OESE) is located in the Main Campus of Soochow University (since 1900), in the eastern part of the Ancient Suzhou City. OESE was originally from the Laser Research Department (since 1979) of Soochow University. In January 2014, on the basis of the Institute of Modern Optical Technologies, the Institute of Information Optical Engineering and the Department of Photoelectric Technology (from the School of Physical Science and Technology), the School of Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering (a school under the College of Physics, Optoelectronics and Energy) was established. In May 2018, the school was set up independently and renamed as the School of Optoelectronic Science and Engineering.
- To create and disseminate knowledge and innovations in optics and photonics by conducting cutting-edge fundamental and applied research to address some of the most demanding challenges in the fields of new energy, new materials, information, electronics and other important optics-related fields.
- To provide the highest quality education in optical science and engineering, and serve the continuing educational needs of industry.
- To contribute to the development of the regional and national knowledge-based and technology-based industries, and create, foster, and sustain mutually beneficial research collaborations and partnerships with industry.
OESE is home to several internationally renowned research centers dedicated to optics-related fields, such as:
“National and Provincial Joint Engineering Research Center for Digital Laser Imaging and Display”
“Key Lab of Modern Optical Technologies of Education Ministry of China”
“Key Lab of Modern Optical Technologies of Jiangsu Province”
“Key Lab of Advanced Optical Manufacturing Technologies of Jiangsu Province”
“Digital Laser Imaging and Display Engineering Research Center of Ministry of Education of China”
These centers are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments whose value exceeds 130 million RMB. Laboratories extend over a surface area of 16,000 m2, including a 5000 m2 cleanroom of class 1000. In addition, some of the unique (largest) optical manufacturing equipment nationwide can be found at OESE, including the largest holographic platform (8m x 10m), the largest holographic exposure device, and equipment capable of fabricating the meter-scale size diffraction gratings. OESE also hosts the nationwide leading optical design, manufacturing, and testing platform.
Over the past four years, more than 200 research programs in Optical Engineering are conducted by our faculty members, with more than 200 million RMB funding are support. Research in OESE has led to the publication of more than 400 peer-reviewed papers, including more than 100 papers published in top ranked journals (such as Nature Photonics, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Optics Letters, etc.). The faculty produced more than100 patents in this discipline during the past 5 years, 2 of these were recognized by the Government of Jiangsu Province as major technological breakthroughs, and3 patents were awarded National prizes for progress in science and technology in 2010, 2012, and 2015, respectively. The productive value of the patented technologies transferred from OESE exceeds 1 billion RMB.
Academic Exchanges and Collaborations
OESE has extensive links and collaborations with other universities and institutions throughout the world including USA, UK, Canada, Finland and Hong Kong, etc. Through our extensive network of international partnerships, we offer opportunities for collaboration on many levels, including supporting governments and companies in the development of their interested topics and providing international studying experiences for students and young staff. OESE also provides program of short to middle-term research-based non-degree training, as well as program toward M. Sc and Ph. D degree.
Student Cultivation and Training
OESE offers full range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees, and also postdoctoral research program in Optics and Photonics, providing students with lessons and trainings suitable for employment in academy, research institute and industry for various innovative researches and engineering activities, including information technology, optoelectronics, engineering optics, optical communications and image processing.
