General Introduction

After the continuous efforts of several generations, School of Physics has now developed into an important base for physics research and education in China, especially in fields of condensed matter physics, particle and nuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, and microelectronics. It has been making great contributions to nation's physics education and research programs.
In the discipline evaluation organized by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China in 2012, Physics at SDU won the ninth best among all the national key disciplines of Physics.

School of Physics is located in the beautiful central campus of Shandong University in Jinan. It runs 3 undergraduate programs, which are Physics, Applied Physics and Microelectronics. The school confers PhD degrees in all the research fields of Physics, including Condensed Matter Physics, Particle and Nuclear Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Theoretical Physics, Radio Physics, Plasma Physics, Optics, as well as Acoustics. The school also offers engineering PhD degrees in Microelectronics, Solid Electronics and Material Physics as well as Chemistry.

The school has four institutes, which are institutes of Condensed Matter Physics, Particle and Nuclear Physics, Photoelectric Materials and Devices, Atomic and Molecular Physics for researching. Among all physics subjects, Condensed Matter Physics, Particle and Nuclear physics are ranked as the National Key Disciplines. Laboratories of Low-Dimension Material Physics and High Energy Physics are ranked as the Shandong Provincial Key Laboratories. We have now established a complete disciplines system and a good discipline framework. In recent years, the school has been undertaking several research platform programs supported by the “National 985 Project” and the “National 211 Project”. The school also undertakes more than 100 research projects including the “National 863 Project”, the “National 973 Project”, the National Natural Science Funds of China, the Natural Science Funds of Shandong Province and High-Technical Projects of Shandong Province. More than ten academic books were published. Each year, there are about 200 scientific articles published in SCI/EI international journals. The School has won 5 National Scientific Research and Teaching Achievements Prizes, including one Second class National Natural Science Prize and 17 Provincial Prizes. The research advantages of the School of Physics have been highlighted with more and more research fruits.


Founded in 1930, School of Physics is one of the oldest departments in Shandong University. Since its birth, Department of Physics has gone through several stages of growth and change, which are Department of Physics in National Qingdao University, Department of Physics in National Shandong University, Department of Physics in Shandong University, School of Physics and Microelectronics in Shandong University and the current School of Physics in Shandong University.

Many famous scientists, such as WANG Pu, WANG Ganchang, SHU Xingbei, DING Xilin, GUO Yicheng, WANG Chengrui and LEI Xiaolin, had taught and conducted research in our school. We are proud of our alumni. MA Zuguang, PENG Shige ,WANG Keming and SHI Guangyu the Academicians of Chinese Academy of Science , JI Yunshi, the vice Minister of the P.R.C. Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, and JIANG Yuekai, the secretary of Party Committee of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics, all graduated from our school.

International Cooperation

The school has been devoting much attention to international collaborations and academic exchanges. We always encourage and provide opportunities for faculty and students to join academic exchange and study oversea. Each year, many famous scientists worldwide are invited to visit the school. So far, the school has built stable academic communication system and kept good partnership with some famous universities and institutes from Germany, United Kingdom, Australia, Switzerland, Israel, United States, Italy and so on. The international exchange and cooperation have enhanced the impact of Shandong University, both home and abroad.
