On May 18, 2018, the “Forum on frontiers of light manipulation”, hosted by Advanced Photonics Center (APC) at Southeast University, was successfully held in the conference room of Jinling building. Prof. Bing Gu chaired this forum. This forum consisted of 4 speakers, which are Prof. Shuqi Chen from Nankai University, Prof. Yangjian Cai from Shandong Normal University, Associate Prof. Fei Wang from Soochow University, and Associate Prof. Zhuqing Zhu from Nanjing Normal University. Prof. Zhuyuan Wang, vice-president of School of Electronic Science and Engineering, teachers and graduate students attended the forum.

Four lectures addressing different application of light manipulation technology are given by the speakers, which are “Manipulation and application of artificial microstructural of manipulation of light fields”, “Research on manipulation of laser coherence”, “Transmission characteristics of partially coherent light in atmospheric turbulence”, and “Manipulation of magnetization field under the condition of tight focusing of vector field”.


Professor Shuqi Chen’s report introduces the use of artificial microstructures designed with different structures to realize the arbitrary clipping of light in the near and far fields, leading to the realization of effective manipulation of the amplitude, phase and polarization state of light. Professor Yangjian Cai’s report mainly introduces the latest research progress of coherent structure regulation for effective resistance to atmospheric turbulence, measuring orbital angular momentum of vortex beams, breaking through diffraction limits, and shaping longitudinal fields. Professor Fei Wang’s report introduces the characteristics of partially coherent light and atmospheric turbulence from theoretical deduction to experimental verification. Professor Zhuqing Zhu discussed in depth the orientation and functional manipulation of the magnetization field induced by light and its application in all-optical magnetic storage.

After the reports, we had a discussion and exchange in view of the development trend and problems in the field of light manipulation. This forum strengthened academic exchanges between teachers and students, and deepen our understanding in the field of manipulation and application of artificial microstructural of manipulation of light fields, manipulation of laser coherence, transmission characteristics of partially coherent light in atmospheric turbulence and manipulation of magnetization field under the condition of tight focusing of vector field, providing a good opportunity to boost the scientific research level and expand the research area in APC.
