College of Nuclear Science and Technology
The discipline of nuclear science and technology in Beijing Normal University dates back to the major of nuclear physics in the Department of Physics established in 1958. In 1979, Beijing Normal University and the Beijing municipality jointly established the Institute of Low Energy Nuclear Physics and the Beijing Radiation Center, which were renamed the College of Nuclear Science and Technology (CNST-BNU) in 2008.
Development of academic disciplines
The CNST-BNU, as one of the earliest units in China to carry out nuclear science and technology research, has one national key discipline (theoretical physics) and one key discipline of Beijing municipal government (condensed matter physics), and is a national base for science talent training, having established the Key Laboratory of Beam Technology of the Ministry of Education, the Beijing Key Laboratory of Applied Optics, the China Jinping Underground Laboratory, and the Beijing Ion Radiation Breeding Research Demonstration Platform, and having several leading equipments in the world, including the maximum single source beam MEVVA ion implanter and the first 400 KeV ion implanter in China. The CNST-BNU covers two first-level disciplines of nuclear science and technology and physics and has 4 doctoral programs, 6 master programs and 1 post-doctoral research center. The comprehensive strength of nuclear science and technology discipline is always leading in the country.
The CNST-BNU has 56 members in its permanent staff, of whom 24 have senior professional titles, and 12 have sub-senior professional titles, including two Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, two scholars funded by National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, one talent of the Thousand Talents Program, and one young talent of the Thousand Young Talents Program. The college has 33 doctoral supervisors and 40 master’s supervisors.
The CNST-BNU offer doctoral and master’s degrees in two disciplines, nuclear science and technology, and physics.
In the theoretical, experimental and applied research of nuclear science and technology, especially in high current ion beam, material surface modification, X-ray optics, microarc oxidation coatings, nanomaterials, radiation protection and environmental protection, nuclear electronics, theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, nuclear physics and particle physics, radiation technology, radiation botany and microbiology, the CNST-BNU has developed unique research directions and achieved many research results with significant impact at home and abroad. The college has won more than 40 awards including national first and third prizes in natural science, second and third prizes in scientific and technological progress, and other provincial and ministerial awards. The CNST-BNU has undertaken and completed more than 200 national 973 major basic research projects, 863 high-tech projects, national natural science foundation major projects and other provincial and ministerial projects. The college publishes more than 100 high-level academic papers, and is granted more than 20 projects and more than 10 patents at home and abroad every year.
Relying on research and exchange platforms such as the Key Laboratory of Beam Technology of the Ministry of Education, the Beijing Key Laboratory of Applied Optics, and the China Jinping Underground Laboratory, the CNST-BNU focuses on innovation and development of cooperation and exchange modes. Through strengthening various modes of major international cooperation, the college promotes the internationalization of its work in various aspects.
