Step out Labs and Make a Different Understanding of Industries & Scientific Research

—- visit to Shanghai of OSA Student Chapter at Zhejiang University

In awaken spring, during 19-20 Mar. 2013, the student chapter of OSA at Zhejiang University organized a visit to “LASER World of PHOTONICS” in Shanghai. About twenty members of the chapter attended the exhibition. We also had the chance to visit the “Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics of Chinese Academy of Science (SIOM)”, and polish a happy & fulfilling exchange with the OSA student chapter at SIOM.

1(A group photo for all the attendees for the exhibition)

“LASER World of PHOTONICS” is the world’s leading trade show for optical technologies. Since 1973, it has taken place every two years in Munich, Germany. “LASER World of PHOTONICS” is the leading regional trade show for optical technologies in CHINA.

With the new World of Photonics Portal, the new information and networking platform for the photonics industry, Munich International Trade Fairs addresses the industrial and scientific communities and users of optical technologies, giving them an excellent opportunity to exchange information. The platform provides the virtual photonics community with information about events and covers the topics Business Life, Market, Products and Business Club. Participation are mostly industry renowned manufacturers, such as TRUMPF, Rofin, Staubli, ABB, Zeiss,Olympus, and so on. Many company’s products are often used in our experimental process, like the laser of the Coherent Company, microscope of Olympus.

As soon as we arrived at the halls, members could not wait to have a close look at the various new technologies and products. The exhibitioners are divided into four parts according to their research field. The many latest technology and products make everyone amazing, especially the laser processing industry. Sophisticated processing technology, unique style, warm customer negotiations atmosphere, all these let our members find everything new and fresh. Different from often staying in the laboratory, the exhibition makes us closely feel research and operation of the enterprise, what’s more, it enhances our confidence in our photoelectric industry.

The students showed high enthusiasm during the 2-hour-long visit, and the plentiful products & latest technologies used in industry seemed to draw a lot of their attention that many members were late for the deadline to get together. Although we reluctantly left the show, but the discussion still continues, the shock of the enterprise and introspection on our own scientific research also continues.

As planned, we went to the SIOM to have a friendly visit in the next day. The students there gave us a warm reception and showed us around their laboratories. The research of High Power laser and Physics test device, named “Shenguang”, was mainly introduced by the host, which shocked us deeply and attracted some members to have a deep talk with the researchers there. With their accompaniment, we also visited State Key Laboratory of High Field Laser Physics. The researchers in SIOM and us reached a consensus to have more cooperation in academic exchange.

According to their introducing, ShenguangⅡ high-power laser experiment device is the domestic first platform of large laser device related experiment ability, and the Shooting Range System is most closely combining the physics experiments & physical diagnosis, which has been honored as “the engineering of making an little artificial sun a big on earth “. In 2012, the technique won the the integrated operation of science and technology award of Chinese academy of sciences major infrastructure running annual meeting. In visit, our members and researcher there discussed deeply at the institute of physics experiment requirements, specific requirements of laser and drive units, etc. After the meeting, the two student chapter chairmans: Lin Yang and Shuang Liu introduced both basic situation, and learnt activity ideas from each other. Yang said:” We student chapter should make our most efforts to strive for growing communication platform of different student chapter, design activities creatively and meaningfully. Our only goal is to service our all members wholeheartedly.”

The members came back to Zhejiang University in the evening of 20 Mar. 2013. In spite of the exhausting journey, we all look forward to the exhibition next year to broaden the vision of our field, especially the technologies from the top companies. Also the visit to SIOM gave us a chance to get in touch with the research institute of CHINESE SCIENCE ACADEMY, which may have a different operation mode from the universities.

This activity is the first in this year, our members evaluate it making sense. Believe that following activities for our members and the students in the center will provide more communication opportunities, and create even greater value for all.

Liangzhu_1
The students arrived at the Liangzhu Museum in the early morning, where an enthusiastic volunteer gave us a warm reception. Then she showed us the main collections of this museum and plenty of the detailed information of Liangzhu lying in these antiques. Through her introduction, the students got a better understand of the historic town of Liangzhu and its splendent culture. We realized that both the sculpture and manufacture were advanced long long ago in Liangzhu, the achievements of which are even difficult to accomplish today with modern technology.

Soon after the visit of the museum, we went to the Yeluwan manor for outdoor activity at about 12:00pm. A barbecue was done by ourselves for the lunch, which consist of various meat and vegetables. The students were divided into several groups to prepare their food and tools to barbecue the materials purchased by the organizers. Through the final baked food might not be so delicious than we ate before in the restaurants, everyone were content with what they and their partners cooked. By the way, the full procedure of the barbecue was filled with rejoicings since some students had never barbecued before.
The real counter-strike was held as the last activity of this association. Split up into two groups were all the present students to fight against, i.e., everyone was equipped with a fake gun to shoot the enemies and the group with the more persons alive shall be the victor. The team cooperation for the group was emphasized during this virtual war. All the students went back to the school after this game at 5:00pm or so.
