Speech title: World’s Deepest-Penetration and Fastest Cameras: Photoacoustic Tomography and Compressed Ultrafast Photography
Abstract: We developed photoacoustic tomography to peer deep into biological tissue. Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) provides in vivo omniscale functional, metabolic, molecular, and histologic imaging across the scales of organelles through organisms. We also developed compressed ultrafast photography (CUP) to record 10 trillion frames per second, 10 orders of magnitude faster than commercially available camera technologies. CUP can tape the fastest phenomenon in the universe, namely, light propagation, and can be slowed down for slower phenomena such as combustion.

Speech title: Retrospect and Thought on the Development of China's First High-End Lithography Projection Lens
Abstract: Advanced IC manufacturing lithography optics consists of two parts: lighting system and projection lens system. The projection lens system is the most precise and complicated optical system developed by human beings at present, the performance of which determines chip integration. This report reviews the development process of China’s first advanced lithography projection lens system with independent intellectual property rights from the aspects of project establishment, development route, development logic, implementation & acceptance results, and industrial layout. The reports also summarizes the experience and understanding for nine years of hard work, and forecasts to establish international high-end optical industry brand and build China's ultra-precision optical industry ecosystem in the current international situation.

Speech title: Application of Photon Detection in Space Exploration
Abstract: Photon detection is the limiting form of optical detection. With the rapid development of detector technology and the continuous improvement of performance, the detection ability of the system for few photons and single photon is constantly improving, and the application field is also expanding. For example, photon lidar is a main direction of the development of space lidar, which can improve the sensitivity of lidar in a large range and reduce the requirement of laser power. In space quantum communication, single photon detector is the core device of the system. This paper will introduce the development of photon detection technology and its applications in space exploration and communication, including laser radar, quantum communication and so on. A new application, space photon communication technology, will also be introduced. The technology has the characteristics of high communication speed, long communication distance and less demand for satellite resources. It is the first choice for data transmission in deep space exploration.
