Peking University is a comprehensive and National key university. The campus, known as "Yan Yuan"— the gardens of Yan, is situated at the northeast of the Haidian District at the western suburbs of Beijing. It stands near the Yuan Ming Gardens and the Summer Palace.The University consists of 30 colleges and 12 departments, with 93 specialties for undergraduates,2 specialties for the second Bachelor's degree, 199 specialties for Master candidates and 173 specialties for Doctoral candidates. While still laying stress on basic sciences, the university has paid special attention to the development of applied sciences.At present, Peking university has 216 research institutes and research centres, and there are 2 national engineering research centres, 81 key national disciplines, 12 national key laboratories.The university has made an effective combination of the research on important scientific issues with the training of personnel with high level specialized knowledge and professional skill as demanded by the country's socialist modernization. It strives not only for the simultaneous improvements in teaching and research work, but also for the promotion of interaction and mutual promotion among various subjects.

Surface functionalized microcavity boosts nonlinear optics

Silica optical microcavities are mainstay photonic devices, valued for their intrinsically ultra-low loss in the broadband spectra and mature fabrication processes, but unfortunately, they suffer from low second- and third-order ...

Breakthrough in electrocatalysts reported

Recently, the group of Professor Guo Shaojun in College of Engineering at Peking University developed a novel type of sub-nanometer, highly curved PdMo nanosheet—due to its structural analogy with graphene, it was denoted ...

New device for symmetry-breaking-induced optical nonlinearity

Second-order nonlinear optical processes play a pivotal role in both classical and quantum applications, ranging from extension of the accessible frequencies to generation of quantum entangled photon pairs and squeezed states. ...

New optical size spectrometer for probing atmospheric particulates

The global environment is suffering from air pollution due to excess particulate matters, resulting in huge societal and economic costs. Air quality is usually characterized by the mass concentration of fine particulate matters ...

Testing Weyl's law at optical frequencies

Stable states (or resonances) are always of importance in understanding reactions and collision processes of all energy scales, but they often prove difficult to detect in experiments, particularly when a system exhibits ...
