XMUM EEE Undergraduates Publish Research Results on Innovative Optical Instruments


The Research Management Center congratulates eight (8) undergraduate students from XMUM Electrical and Electronics Engineering Programme (EEE) on publishing two SCI Q1 papers proposing three types of new absolute optical instruments. Their research is conducted under the guidance of Prof. Chen Huanyang from School of Electronic Science and Engineering of Xiamen University (XMU).

The two papers, entitled “The Luneburg-Lissajous Lens” (by Peng Huiyan, Han Huashuo, He Pinchao, Xia Keqin, Zhang Jiaxiang, Li Xiaochao, Bao Qiaoliang, Chen Ying, Chen Huanyang) and “Duplex Mikaelian and Duplex Maxwell’s Fish-Eye Lenses” (by Peng Huiyan, Liu Senlin, Wu Yuze, Yan Yi, Zhou Zichun, Li Xiaochao, Bao Qiaoliang, Cu Lin, Chen Huanyang), were published on Europhysics Letters and Physical Review Applied respectively.

The eight second or third year students - Han Huashuo, He Pinchao, Xia Keqin, Zhang Jiaxiang, Liu Senlin, Wu Yuze, Yan Yi and Zhou Zichun - conducted their research at XMU in the summer of 2019. Their research projects was specially designed and supervised by Prof. Chen Huanyang.

They also received great support from Ms. Peng Huiyan, a graduate student in Prof. Chen’s research group and the first author of these two papers, as well as Prof. Chen Zhong, Dean of XMU School of Electronic Science and Engineering.

Below are the testimonies from two of the students.

Han Huashuo:

It is my great honor to do this research with Prof. Chen. Through this project my teammates and I have experienced the charm of scientific research. What impressed me most was the importance of format in paper-writing, as well as that of clean and impressive images. Weo encountered a lot of difficulties during the research, and the greatest challenge was to find the rules of imaging. Prof. Chen gave us a lot of inspiration in this regard. 

Liu Senlin:

My vision on transformation optics has been broadened after this research. This paper will definitely have a great impact on my future study. It aroused my enthusiasm for research in invisibility design.
