Institute of Photonics and Photon Technology
Institute of Photonics & Photon-Technology of Northwest University was established in 1997, and Shaanxi Province Key Laboratory of Photoelectric Technology is affiliated to it. In 2010, Shaanxi Province and Ministry of Education co-operating National Key Laboratory (Culture Base) of Photoelectric Technology and Functional Materials was built. The Institute develops long-term scientific research in field of optics which includes Photophysics, Photobiology, Photoelectric Technology and Functional Materials, etc.. The main research directions are: 1. Transient optical and ultrafast process: mainly about measurement, amplification and compression of femtosecond laser pulses, propagation properties of ultrashort pulse and its nonlinear effect during interaction with materials, etc.. 2. Biophoton technology: mainly about the measurement of cell signal transduction, ultraweak luminescence of organism, super fast process of photobiology and photochemistry, etc.. 3. Photoelectron technology and device: mainly about the exploration of new optoelectronic technologies, the research and application development of all-solid-state high-power laser and transient photonic devices, etc.. 4. Optical functional materials: mainly about nanomaterials preparation and its photoelectric properties, nanomaterials optical display and quantum computing, etc..
