Smart Computational Imaging Laboratory (SCILab)

Nanjing University of Science andTechnology (NJUST)

1. Introduction of SCILab and PI

Smart Computational Imaging(SCI) Laboratory (SCILab: is affiliated to Nanjing University ofScience and Technology (NJUST). Itis operated by the Spectral Imaging and Information Processing Team (one of theInnovative Research Teams of the Changjiang Scholars of the Ministry ofEducation) and the first batch of the Huang Danian-Style Teacher Team in China.These two teams are led by Professor Qian Chen, Vice President of NJUSTand a distinguished Changjiang Scholar. We are an energetic research group thatworks on the development of new-generation computational imaging and sensingtechnologies. Driven by nationaldemand and supported by key research projects, our Lab is committed toexploring the mechanism of new-type optical imaging, the practice ofengineering, and the development of advanced instruments. Besides, our Lab alsoinvestigates how these technologies can be applied to the frontier of such fields as optical microscopy,optical metrology, life science, biomedicine, smart manufacturing, remotesensing, and national defense.

The PI of our Lab, Dr. Chao Zuo, is a professor and doctoral supervisor at the Schoolof Electronic and Optical Engineering, NJUST, China. He is one of therecipients of the National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars andthe Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars of Jiangsu Province. In addition, hewas nominated as the highly cited Chinese researcher by Elsevier and World’sTop 2% Scientists by Stanford University for consecutive years. With a research focus on computational optical imaging andsensing techniques, he has made major breakthroughs in such fields as non-interferometricquantitative phase microscopy (QPM) and high-speed structured light 3D sensing.He has authored over 180 peer-reviewed journal publications, including 20papers as cover papers of Light, Optica, and other top journals and 18 papersas ESI’s highly cited papers. In total, these papers have been cited more than10,000 times.

Due to his seminal contributions to computationalphase imaging techniques, Prof. Zuo received the first prize of the TechnicalInvention Award of Chinese Society of Optical Engineering (CSOE) (2020), thefirst prize of the Science and Technology Award, Jiangsu, China (2020), and"Gold Medal with Congratulations of the Jury" at Geneva'sInternational Exhibition of Inventions (2022), etc. He is currently serving as theeditor of Optics and Lasers in Engineering, PhotoniX, Microwaveand Optical Technology Letters, Laser & Optoelectronics Progress, andother journals. He also serves as the youth editorial board member of Infraredand Laser Engineering and Chinese Laser Press. Under his guidance, studentsin our Lab have been nominated for National Excellent Dissertation in OpticalEngineering four times, and they have won the Wang Daheng Optical Award of theChinese Optical Society (COS) four times as well. In addition, he has also guided students to win national goldawards 10 times in college students' competitions such as "ChallengeCup", "Internet+", "Creation of Youth", and “Internetof Things”.
