Prof. Xiao Wang

National Key Laboratory of Plasma Physics, Research Center of Laser Fusion, China Academy of Engineering Physics, China

She has been engaged in the research of high energy, ultra-fast and ultra-intense laser technology for years (concerning the generation, transmission, amplification, measurement, regulation, and application of the high-energy and ultra-fast laser).

She has presided and finished more than ten scientific research projects, relating to 863-National-High-Technology-ProjectMajor-National-Special-Project and projects of National-Key-Laboratory. As a member of the core-technology-group, several large-scale laser facilities have been developed (such as hundreds of terawatts facility SILEX-I, femtosecond-picosecond-nanosecond pulse three-in-one multi-functional laser facility XG-Ⅲ and multi-petawatt OPCPA facility SILEX-II), having won 1 first prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award, 1 first prize and 3 second prize of ministerial Science and Technology Progress Award.

Prof. Yuchen Jiang 

From Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). He received the B.E. degree in automation and the Ph.D. degree in control science and engineering from the same university. His research interests include data-driven process monitoring, fault diagnosis and prognosis, industrial cyber-physical systems, and artificial intelligence. Dr. Jiang is the associate editor of TRANSACTIONS OF THE INSTITUTE OF MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL, and JOURNAL OF INTELLIGENT & FUZZY SYSTEMS. His information can be found at

Title: Countermeasures of stealthy cyberattacks: From a system and control perspective 

Abstract: It has been over ten years since the Stuxnet virus intruded into and caused actual damages to the real-world industrial facilities. While it was a big shock to the industry worldwide and raised significant concerns in safety and security, such novel types of attacks to industrial cyber-physical systems have been extensively studied in recent years. In this talk, we will dive to the monitoring and control level of industrial systems and explore the mechanisms of cyberattacks to control systems. Especially, I will explain about the design principles of stealthy attacks and some typical countermeasures to defend such threats, in terms of prevention, detection, and mitigation.

Prof. Shixiang Xu

Shixiang Xu, born in 1965, completed his PhD in 1998 from Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, China. His current position is a professor of Shenzhen University. Now, he also serves as a member of Laser Professional Committee of Chinese Optical Society, and one of the Councils of Guangdong Optical Society of China. In 2006, he was awarded Shanghai Pujiang talent Fund. In 2023, He has gained the First Prize of Shanghai Technical Invention. Up to date, has gained about 20 funds at National, provincial and ministerial-level, and has published more than 180 papers in peer-reviewed journals and authorized more than 30 patents. His research interests include ultrashort pulse laser, ultrafast imaging, terahertz optics, and manipulation of light field.

Title: Tunable mid-infrared detail-enhanced imaging with micron-level spatial resolution and photon-number resolving sensitivity

Abstract: The underdevelopment of mid-infrared (MIR) components and detectors greatly limit the spatial resolution and sensitivity of MIR imaging. To overcome these limitations, we actualize MIR detail-enhanced imaging via non-degenerate optical parametric amplification (OPA) pumped by a femtosecond vortex pulse. This design renders MIR illumination into a visible image by nonlinear wavelength-conversion, together with a high OPA gain, large spatial bandwidth and remarkable sensitivity. Our experiments show, to our knowledge, the first realization of a non-scanning MIR imaging with a spatial resolution of up to 114 line pairs per millimeter and a two-dimensional spatial bandwidth product of up to 62900, over a spectral region tunable from 2.0 μm to 3.0 μm. Equally important, this setup has simultaneously achieved excellent imaging sensitivity of 25 photons at room temperature. We think that this work provides a powerful way to realize effective real-time MIR imaging with an excellent spatial resolution even in very weak illumination environments, which can benefit many applications from semiconductor material characterization and biomedical imaging to security.
