Institute of Modern Optical Technologies (IMOT) was founded in May of 2000, located in Academician Building of Central Department of Soochow University in the eastern part of the Ancient Suzhou City. IMOT focuses on the innovative research and specialist training in the fields related to the advanced optical technologies. The key research directions of IMOT include the design and fabrication of modern optoelectronic systems, the processing test and equipment of free-form optical surface, and the novel optical and photonic technologies.
This institute has many high-tech platforms for scientific research, such as Key Lab of Modern Optical Technologies of Education Ministry of China, Key Lab of Modern Optical Technologies of Jiangsu Province, and Key Lab of Advanced Optical Manufacturing Technologies of Jiangsu Province. It has many advanced equipements for optical fabrication and processing, photonic design, and nanotechnology.
There are over 40 specialists in the fields of optics and photonics, including 2 academicians of Chinese Academy of Engineering, 2 “Thousand Talents Program” professors, 10 professors, and 13 associate professors. Over 100 students have finished their doctoral or master studies in IMOT and are now working in universities, research institutes, and companies. In recent five years, IMOT has obtained over 150 research grants (national projects over 27) with ~ 200 publications and over 60 patents.
