Light, what kind of light have you ever seen?
Is it brilliant, colorful, pure, or warm?
Light comes in numerous forms
And light has life
The light tunnels we are going into
May bring you a unique feeling…
01 Microwave darkroom experiment
The light in a dark room is the brightness out of the gloom.
There seems to be no day or night here
For the researchers concentrate wholly on their work as if in seclusion
While it is there like an invisible gauge
Witnessing the birth of countless magic data
Amid the measurement of the core and key technologies in such fields as extravehicular space suit antenna system, radar detection, precision guidance, electronic countermeasure, major national scientific research achievements are made one after another.
02 Tianhe debugging
The brilliant Tianhe-2
Have you ever seen it?
It is the one praised by President Xi, the winner of six successive championships, the first TOP500 and the top on HPCG, the one with a peak performance of 54.9 PFlop…
When the button is activated, the giant chassis begins to roar, the colorful lights will send out beautiful glow like the rainbow in their hearts, or the Milky Way flowing in the sky...
03 Laser gyro
This gyro never deviates from the axis, never stops rotation, but shines with eternal light.
As a laser gyro, it is at the core of precision strike, rapid response and precise control in the national defense, at the heart of the weapon platform positioning and navigation system, and the cause that many scientific researchers have devoted their lives to.
Now it is always talked about with emotion, for the sight of it will remind one of the thin, spry “stubborn old man”, who is always in a hurry and with a firm gait, as if warning us never to give up!
04 Quantum experiment
In the wonderful quantum world
The phenomenon of quantum entanglement is called “ghostly action at a distance”
Its wonderful charm has fascinated countless scientists
Everyone is eager to unveil her mystery as soon as possible
Researchers by focusing their eyes on quantum
Open up a dazzling new world
Debugging the laser frequency doubling optical path, and observing the working state of femtosecond laser
They progress steadily through the original innovation
Rising to challenges and challenging themselves to greater efforts in basic research and high-tech research
05 Space experiments
To achieve in-situ calibration in a simulated vacuum environment
They are totally preoccupied in accurate measurement and optical path calibration
Hegel said that a nation with some people to pay attention to the sky is hopeful
All dreams of human flight
Once looked just “impossible”
While all these “impossibilities” in the eyes of researchers
Are none but the next peak to climb
The lift-off of “Long March”, “Tiantuo”, Shenzhou, and Chang'e
Marks the extension of human explorative efforts
Into the vastness of the universe
Just like a beam of light
Born of hope, also giving birth to hope
Driven by dreams, but also realizing dreams
With light, there will be miracle!
A glimpse into the labs of NUDT shows how hard they are working in places unknown to us, but how brilliantly they are shining with their wisdom and findings…
