Institute of Instrument Science and Technology,

 Tsinghua University

  The Institute covers all of the core areas of modern instrument science and technology, including micro/nano technology, optic storage, precision instruments, GN&C (guidance, navigation, and control) technology, smart instruments, sensing technology, smart microsystems and life science instruments. The teaching and research programs in the Institute are organized according to the disciplinary theme, with strong inter-disciplinary programs involving academic cooperations with corporations and research institutes.

  In 1981, the State Council Academic Degree Commission recognized the Institute as eligible to grant speciality (Precision Instrument and Mechanical Engineering) doctorates. In 1988, Precision Instruments and Mechanical Engineering became nationally accredited discipline; the Institute also established Post-doctoral Research Station for Instrument Technology. In 1989, the Institute founded National Key Laboratory for Precision Measuring Technology and Instrument with Tianjin University. In 1997, the Institute established eligibility to grant disciplinary doctorates. In 2001, the Institute heads the list in the National Key Discipline evaluation with a perfect score. In 2003, the Institute also received a perfect score in National Instrument Science and Technology Discipline evaluation.

  Being an important part of National Key Laboratory of Precision Measuring Technology and Instrument Science, The Institute is equipped with a plethora of modern equipment and experimental instruments as well as many prestigious research facilities, including OMNERC (Optical Memory National Engineering Research Center), Tsinghua Space and Aeronautics Technique Center, central laboratory of Tsinghua Micro/Nano Technology Research Center, Tsinghua GN & C Technology Engineering Center, Joint Laboratory for Micro Satellite Technology, Joint Laboratory for Micro Inertial Technology and Instrument, Joint Laboratory for GN & C, and Contemporary GN & C Center for Experiments and Teaching (a Tsinghua University teaching base for experiments).

  From 70s to 90s, the Institute published more than one thousand research papers, patented over a hundred devices, and developed numerous instruments and techniques covering semiconductor manufacturing equipment, electrostatic gyro, recordable optical discs, MEMS technology, micro airborne GN & C system, medical equipment and transducers, among which are optical disc system based on photo-thermal effect, digital quartz force transducer and MEMS-based airborne GN & C system and its key technologies winning the second prize of National Invention Award. The Institute also undertake many projects of great importance in many including National Programs for Fundamental Research and Development ("973" Program), National Programs for High Technology Research and Development ("863" Program), programs serving The Ministry of National Defense, programs funded Natural Science Foundation of China, National key scientific and technological projects. We are also in charge of over 30 courses around university involving instruments science, measuring and control technology, including 2 courses named as Beijing Elite Courses. The Institute houses nearly 60 staffs, including 1 Cheung Kong Scholar Professor, 11 incumbent professors, 18 associate professors, and 13 lecturers, 27 with doctorates.

  The Institute consists of the six following laboratories, namely: Precision Institute and Measuring Technology Laboratory, Sensing Technology and Smart Instrument Laboratory, Microsystems and Control Technology Laboratory, Micro-optical-mechanical-electrical Technology Laboratory, GN&C Laboratory, Optic Storage and Information Processing Laboratory.
 

The Experimentation Center for Measurement and Control Technology,

Tsinghua University

  The Experimentation Center for Measurement and Control Technology, Tsinghua University is a teaching laboratory open to the whole university, offering experiments for more than 15 courses for undergraduates and graduate students such as “Fundamentals of Measurement Technology”, “Fundamentals of Control Engineering”, and “Metrology for Micro- and Nanotechnology”, etc. The center was restructured and expanded in Aug. 2005, and occupies now a total area of 500m2. It consists of 5 major laboratories: Laboratory of Modern Measurements and Testing, Laboratory of Mechatronics, Laboratory of Electromechanical Control, Laboratory of Software for Measurement and Control and Virtual Instruments, Laboratory of Comprehensive Experiments for Demonstration. With the support of the university’s “211” Project and “985” Project for laboratory construction, new experiments were developed, and lots of advanced instruments and equipment for experiments were added. The center has become a modern experimental teaching center for measurements and tests, offering now the students several dozens of experiments on measurement and control technology and systems, including common validation-oriented experiments, advanced experiments, and research-oriented experiments.
