Professor Dieter Bimberg has partnered with CIOMP to further progress on the frontier research area of green photonics. With an investment of more than 15 million RMB, the new Center is another major initiative of CIOMP’s ‘Opening up’ strategy. It follows a similar investment in the launch and construction of the Chunlei Guo China-US Photonics Laboratory in 2016.
The research directions of the Bimberg Center will focus on long-wavelength quantum dot HIBBEE laser technology for next-generation LiDAR, mode-locked quantum dot quantum dot lasers for future Terabit/sec metro communication, and high bit rate and energy efficiency vertical cavity surface emitting lasers for optical computer interconnects including module development.
