Key Laboratory of Spectrochemical Analysis & Instrumentation, Ministry of Education
The MOE Key Laboratory of Spectrochemical Analysis & Instrumentation (herein abbreviated as SCAI) is one of the leading laboratories dedicated to R/D in analytical sciences in China. Focusing on modern analytical sciences, SCAI is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and staffed by members with diverse analytical expertise. The mission of the laboratory is to conduct, promote and foster frontier researches in the development and application of analytical technologies to deal with problems of life, environment, material and energy. To accomplish this mission, the laboratory adopts multidisciplinary approaches, promotes team efforts, and participates actively in collaborative projects. The major research fields of SCAI are spectroscopy and mass spectrometry analysis, micro/nano-scale analysis, multimode imaging analysis and innovation instruments and devices.
SCAI currently has a total of 32 full-time staff members, including 21 professors and 11 associate professors. Among them Professor Ben-Li Huang is the member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Four of them are awardees of National Science Fund for Distinguished Young, five of them are Minjiang Scholar Distinguished Professors and five of them are Xiamen University Distinguished Professors. Under their leadership, all the laboratory members focus on basic and applied research work in new principle, new technology and new method of spectrochemical analysis. KLAS maintains the leading domestic position in the field of atomic/molecular spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and scientific instrument development with high international influence.
In the past 5 years, the laboratory members received more than 148 research funds with the total amount of 98.578 million Yuan (including 3 Ministry of Finance instrument and equipment purchase and development projects, 4 national major scientific instrument and equipment development special projects and 7 projects of National Basic Research Program of China). The laboratory members had published 504 SCI papers, including 24 papers with IF≥10, 147 papers with 10>IF≥5, and 86 papers in JCR1 category. The laboratory members had applied 20 invention patents, 5 utility model patents. They had received 5 provincial group awards and 11 personal provincial awards.
