Date: May 9,2014 Recorder :Yiyun Zhang Photographer: Xinyuan Fang Our activity “OSANJU Presentation of Enrolling New Members and Exchange Meeting”, which is part of Competition and Award, was held at 6:30 pm in the xianlin campus of Nanjing University on May 9.2014. Libo Zhang, vice-chairman of OASNJU and Yiyun Zhang, member of OSANJU hosted the activity. First of all, Libo Zhang(figure 1) made an introduction of the mission, the nature and the current situation of OSA to those undergraduate students, from which they had a reasonable understanding of OSANJU. Then, he announced the information of the upcoming optics-essay competition. The plenty of prize aroused audience’s interest of entering the competition. We believed the following competition will attract lots of students to take part in . Shortly afterwards, seniors from different optical research groups in Nanjing University introduced their major research directions and school life to the young. Senior Yunlong Liu (figure 2) ranked first is belongs to Chunfeng Zhang’s research group. He has a nickname “ AM dragon” which originated from an essay, published in a famous journal “Advanced Material”. Although he insisted modestly that he could’t succeed without his teacher’s help, he also won everyone’s admiration. The following three students are senior undergraduates, but have abundant research experience already. Ji Chen (figure 3) who is from Tao Li’s group announced that he was not skilled at speaking in public as soon as he was on stage. However, his clear thinking and religious logic analyze capability won audiences’ respect. Ronger Lu (figure 4), a beautiful girl having a soft tone but strong field meanwhile made a detailed introduction of her experiment group’s theoretical and experiment advantages , which attracted students’ attention. Ang Liu (figure 5) , whose teacher calls Wei Jiang joining NJU as one of Thousand Youth Talents, studies silicon photonics, a hot and promising spot in optical communication. Then, our vice-chairman of OASNJU, Libo Zhang, as a student from teacher Xiang fei Chen’s research group introduced his group’s research situation, faculty and so on clearly. Proffessor Yan qing Lu’s group is one of the most popular research teams. His group was very selective when it came to accepting undergraduates and PHD students. Senior Zhaoxian Chen (figure 6) came from such a hot team. He told us that most of his senior fellow apprentices have a good job and a high salary. Senior Ming Dai (figure 7) was requested by teacher Minghui Lu to focus on PT super-material. Maybe we don’t have a clear understanding of its principle, but when we refer to invisible cloak, we may know a little about it. Last but not least, Dunzhao Wei (figure 8) who comes from teacher Yong zhang’s group, introduced sub-wavelength light focusing and super-resolution imaging in strong scattering medium. The young asked lots of questions after the meeting and made some constructive feedbacks which are useful to OSANJU’s future construction. In order to satisfy their demand, we plan to found a small group in xianlin to help them in study and life. We sincerely hope they will join us in Recruit new autumn in 2014 (figure 9).
Date: June 9, 2014 Report Prepared by: Wei-hao Zhong A new senior year is coming in June. Some old members of OSANJU will finish their academic career and start a new journey at the same time. In order to see these graduates off and spread their experience, a exchange meeting between new and old members was held at 8 pm in a coffee shop besides Gulou campus of Nanjing University on June 9, 2014. In this event, senior schoolmate Weichun Li employed by Suzhou Mobile and Sunjie Qiu employed by ShangHai Finisar accepted the invitation to the Banpo Village clubs to share their research and job experiences with the new members. The president of OSANJU showed gratitude for two seniors’ coming. Afterwards, senior Sunjie Qiu’ feeling about graduation began tonight’ exchange meeting. The exchange meeting was held in the way that new members asked questions and old members answered, which is surrounded by relaxed and happy atmosphere. Sunjie Qiu published lots of papers in SCI, therefore, he had rich experience in experiment research and paper writing. He showed us how to make an idea come true by experiment and neutralize negative emotions to adapt to difficult experiment. Weichun Li let young girls know how to locate themself in science and engineering in which males play a leading role from the perspective of women. Besides, they also tell us how to make advance-phrase preparation before applying for a job and deal with difficult problems in the interview. For example, if interviewer asks you a question about your lover, how do you answer it? The answer is that I am single or my lover is in the same city. After all, the employers won’t hope that a fresh graduate can make important contribution to the enterprise in two or three years. In addition to job, scientific research and daily life, a few episodes appeared in the exchange meeting. For example, Jinhui Chen (master in 2009) was mistaken for master in 2008 because he showed solid theory foundation when he answered questions. Influence of online shopping in members of OSANJU was also discussed. The meeting finished until 10 pm. Before leaving, we took group photo to saved as a souvenir. We hope our friendship between members of OSANJU will last forever though such activity. Although another two seniors could not present our meeting for their busyness, they have written questionnaire about scientific research and career development back. We will share their experience after acquiring their agreement.
