In order to lead and support the rapid development of optical communication technology, as part of the national science and technology development strategy, the State Planning Commission approved the establishment of the laboratory in June, 1989.
The lab was established by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Peking University. The current chair of the academic committee of the lab is Jie Zhang, who is the academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Zuyuan He is the director of the lab.
There are many outcomes after the establishment of the lab. We completed the first WDM optical fiber communication system in our nation, -- Guangzhou - Shenzhen 4 ×2.5Gb/s bi-directional passive WDM fiber communication systems, and got the third award of National Science and Technology Progress. What’s more, hawse have completed the multicast and burst mode scheduling supported automatically switched optical network, carried out related experiments and demonstrations in the Chang Jiang delta region and won the second award of National Science and Technology Progress. Four important research directions, namely optical transmission, optical network, optical sensing and signal processing, and optoelectronic devices, have been derived and developed based on the above two outcomes, Our lab has obtained a serious of achievements and becomes an important research team in the international optical communication.
During the eleventh “Five-Year” period, our laboratory made great contributions to the development funds and major development projects in our nation, including973 projects, 863 projects, Natural Science Foundation, National Science and Technology Support Program, Major National Science and Technology Projects, etc.

The contributions as listed as below:
1. Strategic research field
During drafting the plan of  the broadband network technology development project during the national twelfth “Five-Year” period, as the team leader, our lab has hosted and participated in the formulation of national high-speed optical communications strategy research and made great contributions to the development of the optical communication and broadband technology.
2. Major basic research field
Our lab has presided two major 973 projects and 15 sub-projects about high capacity optical networks and high-speed low-power photonic integration separately. The lab has participated Natural Science Foundation, 4 Natural Science Fund Projects, lead and organize the fundamental research of two important frontal research directions of the optical communication.
3.  High-tech research and development field
The laboratory lead the research and development of the national 863 major projects planned "high performance broadband information network", "high Trusted Network" and the "national test bed" part in "triple play technology and system evolution”, and supported the construction of the "next generation radio and television". Our lab made significant contributions to the technology development in the optical communication and networks.
4. Industry achievements field
The coaxial cable high-speed access technologies based on hybrid fiber-coax access technology centered with our lab has been one of the important criterions of the radio and television industry. The technology is supported by "Nuclear High Base" National Project and Technology Plan. The research results have been tested in the SoC test trial and have great industrial prospects.
5. National defense field
As a team leader of the national defense plan of “863” xxx, our lab participates in a number of key projects, such as the quantum communication, fiber optic gyroscope and space and space-borne optical communications, laser technology and so on, and makes great contributions.
During the recent 5 years, 14 international conferences were held by our lab. Some of the members in our lab have been the committee member, chapter president, chairman or chairman of the organizing committee in many international conferences, such as Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC), European Conference of Optical Communication (ECOC) and INFOCOM etc. There are 107 invited papers in the international conferences.
Our lab works on the forefront of the international academic development. During the last five years, we have published 608 SCI papers with a total impact factor (TIF) of 1215.741, average impact factor (AIF)of 2.00 and a total of 2191 citations There are 162 SCI papers with IF2.0 and 305 papers with IF3.0.
The lab has also made some breakthroughs in international standardization, participated in international Internet Engineering Standards Organization (IETF), set the metrics developed international standards (RFC5814) and led the research of the international standardization progress of the optical network.
 The Laboratory relies on three first-level disciplines including Communication and Information Engineering, Electronic Science and technology and Physics, combines with subjects like Computer Science, Medical, etc. The reasonable knowledge structure contributes to the construction of the major projects and cross-disciplinary research.
There are 57 researchers in the lab, including 33 professors, 17 associate professors, and 7 lecturers. There is one double-employed academician. Three of them have achieved Outstanding Youth Fund and one person is from “Thousand Talents program”. There are 2 Changjiang Scholar of the Ministry of Education, two 973 Program Chief Scientists, two 863 Expert/overall Team Leaders, two are Selected by National New Century Talent Project, and ten New Century Talents Scheme. 84% of the permanent staffs are with doctoral qualifications. 68% of staffs are younger than 45 years old.
Under the supporting of Peking University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, our laboratory will always focus on the country's strategic objectives, base on innovative basic research, and realize the achievements transformation of scientific and technology as soon as possible. The lab will achieve major breakthroughs, cultivate related talents and maintain the vitality of the research team by strengthening the combination of optical communication and photonics strive.
