JUL . 04 2013

The Sino-Australia Workshop on Nanophotonics was held in College of engineering (COE) at Peking University during June 27-28. Scholars from the University of Adelaide and Macquarie University in Australia attended the workshop along with Peking University researchers. The local committee chair of the workshop is Dr. Xi Peng, Associate Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, COE.

Professor Ren Qiushi, departmental chair of Biomedical Engineering, firstly welcomed all international attendees from the University of Adelaide and Macquarie University, before introducing the research highlights of the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering as well as other institutions at Peking University. “There are many potential opportunities of collaboration between the three universities, especially in nanophotonics and biophotonics. I hope that three universities can utilize this workshop as a friendly communication platform, to promote research cooperation and exchanges in the related fields,” he emphasized.


Representatives from the University of Adelaide and Macquarie University also introduced their own universities and their researches on nanophotonics and bio-application. They expressed willingness to have a long-term cooperation with Peking University.

During the two days’ workshop, the attendees exchanged their research highlights on single molecule, nanophotonics, bio-imaging, and laser techniques. As there were many similarities between these researches, they achieved initial intent of cooperation on many fields.


Besides the workshop, scholars from the University of Adelaide and Macquarie University had a visit to Biodynamic Optical Imaging Center (BIOPIC) and other labs.
