Laboratory of Infrared Material and Devices

Under the supports from Zhejiang Education Committee of Priority Subjects to Discipline Construction and Ningbo Material Science of Priority Subjects to Discipline Construction as well as research projects of national, province and local funds, our lab has purchased domestic and imported equipments with total value of about 20 million RMB. We have built a series of advanced experimental platforms including chalcogenide materials fabrication from small to large sizes, fiber drawing, thin film costing, material physical and chemistry, and optical properties measurements. The main experimental and test equipments are shown bellow:
