In his early research commitments, he took the lead in designing, installing and testing China’s first 100kW Rhombic Antenna and the Broadcasting Mansion in Nanjing. He contributed greatly in restoring our country’s Large Radio Transmitter and Tian An Men Broadcasting System. He was the first to open up the course of “Microwave Technology” for the undergraduates and then turned to research on millimeter wave communication system based on H01 circular waveguide and gained great achievements. He initiated the research on free space optical communication and was the first to take the master students working at optical communication under his supervision. At the same time, he developed and produced our country’s first Microwave Wave-Guide Phase Shifter and Microwave Wave-Guide Direct-Coupled Filter which were awarded the Prize of National Congress of Science and Technology. Of his research work, you can also find digital microwave communication system with 120 channels. After 1976, Prof. Ye focused his research on optical communication technologies and had ever since made major achievements in key devices such as coherent optical fiber communication systems, optical soliton communication systems, tunable and single-frequency-stablized semiconductor lasers. Similar achievements also made in polarization noise, modal noise and fiber nonlinearity. He proposed, directed and accomplished the project on the Theme of Communication in National 863 Program.

Chen Junliang    Academician

Professor CHENG Junliang (1933 – Present), academician of both China Academy of Sciences and China Academy of Engineering, expert in communication and electronic system, one of the founders of China’s SPC switching system, pioneer of China’s intelligent network (IN). He was born in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province.


In 1960s, Prof. Chen was one of the leading developers for wired 600/1200 baud and wireless 600 baud data transportation equipment. He researched and developed the wireless data transportation system for China’s first satellite – ‘DongFangHong’, and this won him the National Science Congress Award in 1978.


In 1980s, he was engaged in the development of ‘DS-2000 SPC digital switching system’ in the “6th Five-year Plan” and the ‘DS-30 SPC digital switching system’ in the “7th Five-year Plan”. He was mainly responsible for the development of diagnostic program in SPC switching system, when proposed the theoretical model for digital switching network and diagnostic program for switches.


In 1990s, he was the first to be engaged in the network intelligence research and developed China’s first IN system, creatively solved the problem of IN’s system architecture, service creation, software reliability and overload control, realized the industrialization of the system and this system has been widely used in China’s telecommunication networks. The above work has won the National Science and Technology Progress Award for 3 times.


Currently he is engaged in the research of network intelligence and network service. He is the Dean of the Institute of Network Technology, BUPT, and Editor-in-chief of China Communications, a joint CIC-IEEE Publication.
