Professor and Director
Optical and mechanical engineering, transmission of light, optical design, optical manufacture
Prof. ZHU is mainly engaged in laser driver overall design, large optical precision mechanical design and manufacturing process, optical instrument overall design, advanced optical testing technology and instrumentation, beam transmission and control research.
He has participated in and presided over the development of Shenguang II laser device, Shenguang II multi-functional high-energy laser system and Shenguang II upgraded laser device, and proposed and verified the large-caliber electro-optical switch cavity emptying four-pass amplification and picosecond laser system amplification transmission link. The overall technical solution of the probe light high-energy laser system creatively solves the problem of high-stability large-energy optical parametric amplification, terminal optical components, large-caliber adaptive optical core unit technology, modular two-pass main amplifier and spatial filter coupling. The series of engineering technical problems laid the foundation for the development of fusion-grade laser drivers.
