  From October 14, 2017 to October 16, Francis T. S. Yu, Pensylvania State University, paid a visit to School of Optoelectronics. Hao Qun, dean of School of Optoelectronics, together with associate dean Yang Jian and Yang yanan, met and communicated with him.



  During his visit, Francis T. S. Yu conducted academic exchanges with the research team working on virtual reality and augmented reality of optical engineering, listened to the introduction of recent study results made by Professor Cheng Dewen and experienced near-eye display system using free-form-surface prism. In addition, he discussed issues about features of virtual image display, principle of interaction control as well as engineering applications with teachers and students in the laboratory and gave his own opinion.



  On the morning of October 15, Francis T. S. Yu presented two academic reports in succession from 9 am to 12 am entitled Time: The Enigma of Space and Time-Space Quantum Entanglement at the Lecture Hall, Teaching Building 7. Academician Zhou Liwei hosted the meeting and over 200 faculties and graduate students of School of Optoelectronics joined it. Academician Zhou introduced the personal experiences of Francis T. S. Yu, his contribution to Chinese optics enterprise as well as his natural kindness of never forgetting the mother country.



  In his first report, in terms of Einstein’s mass-energy equation, Francis T. S. Yu came up with material equation in differential form by setting the time variable. Further, he put forward the overview of timing universe and then vividly described the important role time plays in the creation of universe.

  In the second report, he analyzed the principle of time-space quantum entanglement basing on the concept of timing universe. Then, by making the comparison between quantum entanglement and synthetic aperture radar familiar to people, he proposed theories that quantum entanglement should work likely within the range of Heisenberg’s uncertain principle and it could cause energy loss as well as time delay. From the above, he predicted that according to present scientific theories, it would be very difficult to achieve the long-distance immediate quantum entanglement. The lectures given by Francis T. S. Yu were so vivid and wonderful that students all asked questions actively and communicated with him.

  Brief Introduction of Francis T. S. Yu

  Francis T. S. Yu, expert on optical information processing and Evan Pugh Professor of electric engineering, Pennsylvania State University as well as counselor for many industrial sectors and government labs, stays at Pennsylvania State University and teaches in Department of Electric Engineering. He specializes in optical signal processing, holography, information optics, optical calculation, neural network, optical refraction optics, optical fiber sensor and photonic device. He has published over 500 papers, among which more than 300 were cited. 6 of his 9 issued treatises have been translated into Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Korean. In 1988, he won IEEE Donald G. Fink Prize Paper Award and gained SPIE Dennis Gabor Prize in 2004. In the year of 1995 and 2004, he was hired as an honorary professor at Nankai University and National Chiao Tung University respectively. In 2005, he was hired as advisory professor at Beijing Institute of Technology. At present, he is IEEE life fellow, fellow of OSA (Optical Society of America) as well as SPIE (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers)and PSC.
