Group leader:Professor Jun Xu

Dr. Jun Xu, Professor of Materials Science and Condensed Physics, is, now, the research project leader of Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIC,CAS). He is a council member of the Chinese Society of Crystal Growth. In 2001 and 2005 he was elected vice chairman of Shanghai Ceramic Society (SCS).He has been director of the R&D Center for Laser & Opto-Electronic Materials in SIOM from 1997 to 2005. He is the author or coauthor of 523 scientific publications, including 3 books and 100 proprietary reports (patents).

He has developed on optical single crystals, especially laser and opto-electronic functional crystals for more than 20 years. Leading his research group, Dr.Jun Xu   has made a series of outstanding achievements, reflecting in the research and development on large-sized Yb:YAG laser crystals, Yb3+-doped series of oxyorthosilicate laser crystals, (Na+,Yb3+)doped CaF2 self-Q-switched laser crystals, (Cr4+,Yb3+) doped tunable and self-Q-switched laser crystals, Ti:Sapphire laser crystals, large-sized and high Nd3+doped YAG laser crystals, large-sized substrate and window sapphire crystals, GaN epitaxial used substrate γ- LiAlO2 and LiGaO2 crystals, novel birefringent a-BaB2O4 crystals, high-melt temperature scintillator crystals, and so on.

In 2002,Dr.Jun Xu was elected one of “Top Ten Outstanding Youths of Shanghai”. He was the winner of “China Youth Science and Technology Innovation Award”, awarded by All-China Youth Federation. He was also the winner of National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in 2005. He was awarded the 2nd-class National Science and Technology Progress Award in 2003 and two 1st-class Science and Technology Progress Awards of Shanghai in 2001 and 2004.
