An Pan made innovative work in the field of Fourier ptychographic microscopy, which is a promising high-resolution (HR) and large field-of-view (FOV) imaging technique that reported in recent years. It simultaneously tackles four significant problems in conventional microscopy: phase loss, aberration-introduced artifact, narrow depth of field (DOF) and the tradeoff between resolution and FOV.

Every year, posters session is open to young scientists, but the competition is extremely severe. This year more than 60% of young scientists submitted their abstracts and only 30 posters are selected and displayed during the whole meetings. The organizers paid great attention to this session and provided professional training for the 30 candidates on the evening of the opening ceremony.
Since year 1951, Nobel Laureate Meeting has been held once a year in Lindau, Germany, inviting Nobel Prize Winners and global outstanding young scientists, which has been 69 sessions so far.
