Time: 12th April, 2018, 8:30-9:30 am
Venue：Conference Room on the 1st floor, Energy Basic Building
Lecturer：Prof. DU Xiangwan, Chinese Academy of Engineering
This lecture firstly expounds the relationship between the creation of new concept weapon and the breakthrough of basic discipline. Combining with the personal experience, the directed energy (high energy laser) development history in China is introduced in detail. Further understanding of the trend of the directed energy (high energy laser) is put forward. Finally , the hope to young science and technology researchers is raisied.
Prof. DU Xiangwan was born on Apr. 29, 1938 in Nanyang, Henan Province, China，specializing in applied nuclear physics, laser technology and energy research.
He graduated from Moscow Engineering Physics Institute of the Soviet Union in 1964. He was vice president of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), research fellow and senior scientific advisor of China Academy of Engineering Physics (CAEP). He was in charge of systematic research on diagnostic theory of nuclear tests and neutron physics of nuclear weapon. He served as a chief scientist in China’s new power laser research,and drove China’s several new types of power laser technologies such as chemical oxygen-iodine laser to reach the world’s most advanced levels. He has been director of the committee of experts in the field of advanced defense technology of the 863 Program since 2001. He is currently the deputy head of National Energy Expert Advisory Committee, and Honorary director of the National Expert Committee of Climate Change.
Prof. DU was elected member of CAE in 1997 and foreign member of Russia Academy of Engineering Science in 2006. He was honored with one top prize, one first prize and two second prizes of the National Award for Science and Technology Progress and dozens of ministry- and commission- level first and second prizes. He won the Ho Leung Ho Lee science & Technology Progress Award in 2000.
